  1. Steering & Suspension
    Hi everyone, I appreciate diagnosis by forum is a difficult job, especially when it's a noise, however I'm going to ask anyway and hope for some prior experience that might narrow my focus. On my 2003 T4 2.5 TDI (88) I'm getting a clunk, a light but audible one, under braking to a stop, moving...
  2. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, I've just had a slightly worrying experience in my T4 2.4D I hadn't driven it in about 2 months because of lockdown and just went to give it a spin. Engine started fine but could hear a flapping noise from the engine and had very little power. It moved but I couldn't get it up the ramp...

    I'm having a very intense clapping sound in my VW T4 2,4 from 1994. At first I replaced the vacuum pump which seemed to be the cause, however the clapping intensified , seems like im driving a tractor sometimes. When i pump\press the breaks the noise stops for a while... Ive been reading that...
  6. T5 Conversions
    Well, I've now tried every suggestion to stop my Austop Roof creaking and slowly driving me insane. It still feels like its the rubber seal rubbing on the bodywork and I've applied loads of silicone grease but I'm also now noticing that the front corner can be lifted with little effort even when...

    Hey, second post in a row today about my T4 Kombi Petrol from 2004. I can hear a squealing noise when the van has been sitting outside overnight, you can hear it for a good 20 minutes driving then it fades away and after that can vaguely hear it when revving up a bit too aggressively. Do you...

    Hi All I have a 2000 reg 1.9TD - idles and runs sweetly but has just started screeching about 2000rpm. I had a listen around the top of the engine and sounds like it's coming from the vicinity of the turbo. So far I have re-sealed the inlet manifold gasket (turbo output/below the EGR) and...

  13. T4 Syncro Garage
    Getting great trips in the Syncro recently but have noticed a resonance appearing in rear left between 55 & 60 MPH. I tried changing tyres first just in case the noise was from the tyres. The noise remained on different tyres. So I put the original tyres back on. A few weeks later it got worse...

    Folks, The vehicle has done about 100k km and servicedonly by VW. It has just started making a strange noise under the bonnet, probably in front of driver. Seems to happen only at low is speeds (max 60kph, generally less and at maybe 1500-1700 rpm) but when lightly decelerating or...

    T5.1 180 BHP BiTurbo 61 Reg , about 80000 miles, has started to make a very strange noise at random occasions.I don't even know how to best describe it. It's not a knocking or squealing but almost like a grunt. Seems to come from nearside front area. The first time I noticed it was going round a...

    Hi My 7H T5 2.5TDI 174HK just started acting up. It misses power when accelerating, and it is more noisy when stepping on it. Also it smells of petrol when stationary at red lights. I have tried to look for obvious leaks in intake or exhaust - but can see nothing. Anybody has any good ideas...

    The other day I was driving and a high pitched noise developed when revving. Within a couple of minutes this was pretty noticeable, and I realised that when turning the steering wheel there was a loud grinding/squealing noise. I stopped at the first opportunity. The steering fluid had leaked out...

    Just had my new to me 2013 180DSG 4motion (50k well looked after) remapped and very happy with the results. Low rev torque is way up and hills are now my friends. Only now on full throttle when the box changes up there is a very noticeable and worrying eeek noise every time the next gear up is...

    So my van 96 Multivan 2.5TDI ACV has been in the garage (i live abroad) for 3/4 weeks and they still don't know what the problem could be. It suddenly started making a loud tractor noise under acceleration or just revving the engine, also loss of power especially when accelerating. The loss of...
  20. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello all, Wonder if anyone can shed any light for me - my van has developed a strange noise as follows. When cruising along between 1500 and 2000 rpm and when I ease off (particularly going around a roundabout) I get a squeal noise from the engine - i can only describe it as when you used to...
