Do you know exactly what they replaced? I've had mine in 3 times now, after the third visit they said they change a suspension arm, and baring. (drivers side) as soon as I picked it up noticed it was exactly the same. Rang them up and said, now I've gotta go back and take a guy round the block in my van to show him.T5.1 2013 .low mileage. In warenty.....Winter coldness returned and so did the knock .that got me reminded to get back in touch with VW.
Well! So far so good. Had my Steering column knock part changed a week ago and seems fine . VW Main dealer needed a bit more pushing to get it actioned after being reported and logged over a year and half ago
They said yes we have a fix. Book it in . So well done V dub. Hope it remains knock free for good.A:
I posted on this thread some time ago. Good luck to the rest of you on an effective repair. And thanks for the knowledge and effort of the guy who started this thread. Have a good Xmas all *<>
Mr Happy for now
Try TPI 2040732/1Is there a reference for the fix that I can waive in front of them please?
UPDATE.....both strut top mounts have been replaced. will see how it goes and update this post. T:took mine in for examination yesterday and they said that it was the strut top mount. they have booked me in and are going to change it. I will update this post as it progresses. 2014 van with 18,000mls.
I had the knocking sound with the van less than a year old, I put a post up at the time. The noise went after a while ( I do not know if the dealer did anything when I took it in for a service ). However it developed a creaking noise when driving slowly over rough roads and speed humps. After a couple of times back to dealers they replaced the offside top strut bearing, (something I read about on the forum but the VW dealer mechanic dismissed this at first).also had a leak on rear shock, under three years old and 17,000 miles. All done under warranty.Hi Johnyo
I know this is an old feed however can you or anyone else advise if replacing both top mount struts worked? I have a 2005 T30 130bph transporter which has a loud knocking sound coming from the steering. It has had this since i bought it 3 years ago.
