    Thread: Bad Shaking

    1. 09-14-2019 08:18 PM #1
      So I did some digs with my friends one night, bad idea I know, and since that night my car started squeaking when moving from a stop and mainly in 1st and 2nd gear. After a couple days, that squeaking has turned into clunking and shortly after bad shaking.

      From a stop, there is a loud rubbing sound on the right side, pretty sure it's the back. A lot of vibration coming through the steering wheel and brake pedal when it's not being used, and the vibration will mainly happen when flooring the car. I've checked everything underneath and around the tires and I'm not finding anything wrong. There is also no clicking present when turning the wheel.

      Can anyone direct to me to something I need to check?

      Why not get someone to stand to the side of the car that you think the noise is coming from and pull forward from and see if they can pinpoint what area the noise is generating from....front back left right

      Actually found the problem in the engine bay now that the problem has gotten worse. The bolts for the bracket on the engine side broke, so now my engine is hanging in the bay. Anyone want it?

      Damn thats not good. Do not understand why VW can not keep engines and transmissions in the proper location. You are not the first and unfortunately not the last that this will happen to. I personally would report this to NHTSA.GOV Wonder if someone reused the bolts instead of replacing them?

      I replaced them when I put stiffer mounts in. Unfortunately a few places got stripped out when I put everything back together so I'm not fixing it. If it didn't require me to remove the engine again, I would....

      In what way does the engine have to be removed to do mounts.....? I've owned so many mk5/6 cars, and never once pulled an engine/trans to do mounts.
      no.

      The bracket that attached to the engine is where it got jacked up, and it's pulling the motor mount with it. If it was the mount then yea, I wouldn't need to.

      Hoping that everything is fine and just need to replace the bolts... Don't know if I'd trust the mount now though, probably replace that too.
