      So this noise is bugging the **** out of me, I went to les swab today and the noise I thought that was coming from the front of the car (wheel bearings), because it hums, when the car is in motion, as the car goes faster it hums louder but when i turn to the right the noise goes away, turn the the left and the noise stays. Les Swab tells me that the noise is coming from my transmission, and now im pissed. i got my oil changed and topped off my other liquids. They said they werent too sure about the noise either, because they said the noise was from the belt side. So after everything has been inspected my noise is still there, and i have no idea what to think, besides spending money to get the car looked at in the shop. If you have any tips or ideas for me to look for or say to the shop peeps, it would be greatly appreciated.

      I think you may have been correct in your guess that the wheel bearing is going out. It looks like you are on the way to getting this figured out. Hope this goes well for you.

      tuning factory VW is not an ability of mine..... wish it was, but most of the VW's I've had in the past have all ended up on stand alone management.... The factory stuff requires too much special equipment/tools/books. Sorry. Joey at DJM would be my only recommendation.


      PS; Our payment plan is pretty easy to deal with though.......

      Enjoy your ride!!!!

      Has that 95 golf sport been spray painted black and now red by chance? It sounds like an old buddys car. It had horible vibration when turning hard.
