2002 Volkswagen Jetta Q&A
2002 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Knocking Noise in Suspension??
I have been having this issue for almost 1 year...there seems to be a knocking noise when I turn to left or right and also over road bumps and curves...I replaced the front struts and mounts/bushings...stablizer links...lower control arm bushings, one front control arm bushing and sway bar bushings....and the noise is still there...VW did not charge me for half the work because they could not find the issue...new rear brakes were installed...and my tires are merely a year old and still have good threads...two wheel alignments were performed in the past 6 months...also a new front left brake spindal was replaced by VW...with all this work I am still having the same issue..a lot of these parts were redone by VW in the past 6 months...no one can seem to locate the issue....might anyone be able suggest a resolution? - musicalboxedancer
Has the CV shafts ever been changed in the front? - Valleyautotech
How many miles does this Jetta have as a 2002 probably could use a CV Shaft inspection like Valleyautotech suggests and Napa has new ones http://www.napaonline.com/Search/Detail.aspx?A=NMD942011_0160165219&An=599001+102002+50074+2074021+11015+599999+109999+59999+2999999 and the labor isn't that high 2.4 hours for both - hemicuda

check all of the lower frame bolts with a pull bar not visually may seem tight but may be stripped looks can be deceiving also check steering rack for broken mount straps or loose bushings useing 10 to 12 inch pry bar be sure not flexing enough to bump on frame or body. - rc parts
