Car Suspension Noises
The last car to come to us, with a noise problem was a VW GT TDi on a 2002 plate. Accordingly, the noise sounded like it was coming from all around the car. We road tested the car and indeed could hear the noise. He drove the car in the large car park of the local Co-op supermarket, with the window down. The car drove without the creaking noise.
Car Creaking noises-Cars are capable of producing many noises including “creaking”.Creaking is one of the noises, that really annoys the driver. Hence it is one of the most common “noise” problems that we are presented with here at Pellon Autocentre in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK.
Naturally, cars turn up with rattling, squeaking, banging and other sounds, that sometimes can not be explained by our customers. The last car to come to us, with a noise problem was a VW GT TDi on a 2002 plate. The car had done about 69000 miles. So the mileage was low for the year.
Thus, even when the car was driven down his drive. The problem was that the car was making an irritating creaking sound. Surprisingly, the noise sounded like it was coming from all around the car.
Car Suspension Noises can drive you mad?
As a result, we decided to check the cars past history. Finding, that the car was fitted out with some new” anti roll bar bushes” about two months ago. Hence, we replaced the cars “drop links“.
We road tested the car and indeed could hear the noise. He drove the VW fast and slow. He drove the car in the large car park of the local Co-op supermarket, with the window down. Naturally, he could hear the creaking quite clearly with the window down. We have seen this sort of problem before and so we suspected the front suspension could be the problem.The wishbone bearings could also be the problem. We decided to check that the drop link bolts were tight?
They were re-tightened and this solved the problem. The car drove without the creaking noise. The customer was highly delighted and drove off into the traffic a happy man.
