`99 Passat Suspension creaks

3 posts in this topic

I'm getting a creaking noice from the front end of my 1999 Passat TDI. I think its coming from the nearside.

The steering feels a little heavy. I spoke to a few people/places and they think it sounds like the suspension arms that may need replaced.

Some say to check with VW as they may fund part/full cost of repairs.

Does anyone know what the recall number was for this fault on the passat and B5 A4 ?

The Bearing Arm recall was a check then replacement parts if needs be. I dont know if this sould the same as the noise your hearing though.

It was recall campaign 40G3. Best to call your local stealer and they will tell you if your car falls in the Chassis range affected.

Thanks,

The car just had its 70K service and they didn't mention anything about the creak.

Looked back at the 60K service invoice. They carried recall 40g3 out on the car then. Since that was less than a year ago I'll give them a call and see what they say.
