Rear suspension TROC R

Post by Nosrem49 » Sun May 02, 2021 11:09 am

Hi! Around 2 months or so back I started to hear a creak from the rear offside suspension every time I went over a bump (plenty around), so booked the car into VW MK who after a road test diagnosed the issue as the rear anti-roll bar and D links. The suspension was removed and cleaned and lubricated with a special grease (so I was told). It was fine for about 3-4 weeks but the noise came back. I took the vehicle in as the parts were in stock. The parts were not fitted and the diagnosis this time was the rear seat latch etc. was the issue. I got a tad arsy and commented how can it be one thing (they are the professionals) and then it is something completely different. You can guess the question could not be answered. Anyway, it is back and before I go back again has anyone had this issue? Many thanks. Chris

I think mine might have this as I have a rattle coming from that area. Let me know what happens.

Chris - I’ve just checked my car and I have the squeak/rattle coming from the rear seat latch on the RHS. I’m away at the moment but will take my car to the local VW dealer when I get back as there’s a problem with wireless CarPlay to look at as well.

Pleased I was not imagining it was just me who has this issue. I am certain it is still there but not as bad as previous. I live in the wilds of Oxfordshire so the rubbish road surfaces really shows the issue up. The rear parcel shelf is also a pain as it also rattles. I put that down to poor design. Let me know how you get on.
