B5.5 Subframe Creaking

Post by Vwnutter80 » Thu May 31, 2018 3:27 pm

I had my subframe on my passat 2003 estate replaced last year december and ever since I drove it out from the garage i can hear creaking on initial pull and if im reversing and turning or parking - never when the car is moving.

Today I gave the car to a VW Specialist who acknowledged the fault and pulled down the subframe, suspension arm and even checked the bushes but cannot seem to shift the noise.

it's got to a point where i really want to get to the bottom of this - any ideas or experiences will be much appreciated

I have had a little look online and some people are suggesting to replace the subframe bolts as the old ones may not be being 'stretched' properly....

You have posted this in the B3/B4 forum. Post again in the B5/B5.5 forum and more people who are likely to be able to help will see it.

Good luck.
