If it's anything like the noise I have it may be upper strut bearings. My noise it more of tick though. I happens when I hit the brakes, when I engage/disengage the clutch and when I get on and off the the accelerator.

Ooh VW's are hub centric and the lug bolts just hold it in place and the hub supports all the weight.

If you don't tell the studs I won't either, it can be our little secret

Which is to say that if the hub pilot were carrying the load, it would be moving by the amount of clearance between the wheel bore and the hub pilot every time the wheel rotated. Obviously that's not the case with how solidly aluminum wheels sieze onto the hub. All the weight is carried by the wheel being clamped to the hub by (5) 14mm bolts torqued to whatever ft/lb (mine are zapped on with a 100ft/lb torque stick, so about 110 ft/lb) making some absurd amount of clamp load (around 15k lbs times five lugs)

I just replaced the passenger side upper strut bear and it does seem quieter. Maybe onto the driver's side.

Been a while since i posted around here! Sold my 01 Golf TDI a month or so ago, replaced it with a 2012 Wagon TDI w/dsg.

My only compliant is the sound system quality sucks.

Jon will be putting tunes in it shortly after VW gets their act together

Cool, then I don't gotta wonder if I should have chased after the guy to see if it was a diesel.

I have some rims off of a ford.. 5x112 I believe so they should fit some later VW's.. they have snow tires on them with at least 80% life left..

won them on an auction took a chance they would fit as there was no description for what they came off of... 16inch rims fyi

looking to get $400 obo

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/da...745849032.html

I am actually after bigger rims for my 03 Golf TDi or even a spare set of stockers for winter setup 5x110

5x100 for Mk4 Golfs, Jettas, and New Beetles.

Also, CL respondents will offer you $100 or $150 for 4 used tires and steel rims. You should hold out for at least $200-250, or a little more after the first significant snowfall.

Your ad should have Firestone Winterforce in bold, or at least a little more prominent. Maybe something about how well rated they are - are they?

You can get a repair wire from the dealer.
