Squeaky Scirocco :-(

Postby Suzanne » Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:54 am

Hi Guys!

This is my first post here and i apologize if this i s a subject that has been mentioned previously.

I have a 2016 R line Scirocco TDI and it is due to go back in the garage for a 4th time for a squeak on the front end. They have already replace both nearside and offside wishbones and bushes. They claim all tested and ok, yet when i take it away it is still there. It is really noticeable when you go over bumps. Every time they fix one side, it also then pulls to the opposite site.

Have any of you experienced this issue or am i just an unfortunate individual?

Thank you very much for any help in advance

Suzanne :-)

Hi! thank you so much for your reply. My scirocco doesn't have the comfort settings :-( at times i wish it did! The noise is only really noticeable when you go over a speed bump, which where i currently live is unavoidable. It came out of the garage for the 4th time having had the bushes greased and yet it still has an awful noise over bumps.

They have to put it on a carlift and then use a wooden beam to move every part of the suspension.
Now you keep changing every part till your pockets are empty.
I saw this on Wheeler dealers.
Or use some wireless microphones to trace it.
Sounds not always come from the direction you think.

hmmmm,,if they have greased the wishbone bushes,,,,that shouldn't be the cause,,,but you also have drop links connected to the anti roll bar,,there is the anti roll bar mountings as well,,to be fair there is not a lot else moves when the suspension is compressed(ie going over a speed bump)

Doesn’t this sound like the subframe moving issue? https://store.034motorsport.com/034moto ... a3-tt.html

Probably get more opinions in technical.

Hey, I am not sure if it is the same but my car also squeaks a bit at speed bumps - the bigger the susp travel, the more it squeaks. I can also sometimes hear it on old, poorly cobbled streets when going slow. Mine is weather dependent - if it's wet and cold, it is barely audible, if it's dry and warm, it's loudest. Took it to the dealer few years ago and they told me that it's the anti roll bar that needs greasing (quoting "nothing major, car is still safe"). They did not have convenient slots so I did not have it solved so I am still stuck with it now. It does not bother me too much as I don't have many speed bumps on my regular routes and don't drive car so much any more. I have a cambelt change approaching so I might have it done then.
Hope this helps!
