are u in the mob?
Drove it to my interview today... Now im trying to figure out what the heck is the obnoxious clicking noise coming from under the passenger seat at idle... When I give it a tap on the gas it goes away, as soon as idle is restored, it's back to clicking away...
Any ideas or thoughts? 2006 GTI, all up to date on maintainence, running APR Stage 1. I did have an issue months back with getting fuel cuts on a hot day, but they went away, and the dealer said there was a fault but couldn't replicate the issue. I have had the cam follower and HPFP done under warranty as well.
is it a constant clicking or does it go along with music/road bumps? i noticed on my recent road trip that i get this annoying light clicking and creaking from the passenger seat. i think the creaking is the side door card pocket but i cant figure out the clicking noise because it happens at random.
do you have power seats? leather sport seats or the cotton plaid?
THE CBOX KREW
There's always time for a GI Joe orgy
I had a very similar clicking noise coming from what sounded near the glove box/foot area of the passenger seat. It was a steady/regular clicking noise, pretty much only during idle.
Turned out the DV was sticking and causing the clicking noise, and needed to be replaced.
Hope this helps.
Might be the fuel lines rattling. Fairly common problem. VW even issued a service bulletin about it. The lines are hard plastic and run into the frame rails under the passenger side of the car. They can rattle there or up behind the glove box. The solution is to jam some sort of material into the frame rail with the fuel lines so they can't move anymore. Most guys do it themselves. You need to pull the plastic cover off the bottom of the car to get to it (easy).
When it started on my car, it only happened at idle.
I'd stop drinking beer, but I'm no quitter.
When you say VW issued a service bulletin about it. whats that mean? I have a warranty for another 500 miles (certified pre owned) but Im at school (about 250 miles away from home) so i can't actually do the work my self so I have to take it to a dealership either locally here or when i get home
