  2. Strut Noise when turning

    VW CC Technical Forum
    My 2012 CC started making a "groaning" noise when Im turning the wheel to park. Not when moving so I don't believe it a CV joint. Could this be the upper strut mount bushing?
  3. Early 90mm CV Joint differences

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I'm in no rush, but I want to change an outer cv in my 1981 scirocco. Not going the whole axle route seems to be against the grain;, but I kept on searching and found a cv on ebay that says mk1's up to 1980. The part number is 171407311d. I'm tempted to buy it anyway and just find out...

  5. Driveaxles snafu

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Volkswagen originally provides equal weight drive shafts for the MK1 vehicles with manual transmissions (about 10# each). The longer passenger shaft is hollowed out so the weights will be equal on both sides. Some of the "bargain" axle assemblies have solid shafts on the passenger side. While...
  6. CV joint switch

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Can a bad inner CV joint be replaced with a good used one from another shaft? I had tranny fluid leak from the differential seal and thin out the grease on the one that went bad. When I took the bad cv joint off the axle I want to use with a different proven, used inner CV joint, the was a...

    What is best for removing grease from an CV joint. I've used kerosene and feel there might be something better. Turpentine?

  9. CV Shaft Replacement DIY needed

    MKV How-to's and DIY's
    So I have a new CV Shaft -- current inner boot is torn and causing some rather discomforting wobble/shimmying under acceleration. Figured replacing the whole thing is just prudent since it all needs to come out anyhow. I am trying to loosen the axle bolt at the wheel and have thus far snapped 2...

    VW CC Technical Forum
    Had my dealer replace my original 235/35-19 tires with the optional 235/45-17 size. (Chewed up 3 tires on NJ roads. The replacement was done gratis, at my request, to avoid giving my money back after having the radio/navi replaced three times). My issue is the stock 35 series tires have a...

    Morning everyone I purchased a 2012 Tiguan 2.0l SE 4Motion 2 weeks ago from a main dealer with 37k miles on the clock. It still is under the manufacturers warranty.

  20. CV Joint or whole Driveshaft Replacement

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I have an 84 Rabbit Diesel Pickup, manual trans. I broke my driver-side CV joint spinning my wheels trying to get unstuck from the snow. I found that the bearing cage had broken and fallen out onto the driveway. I'm guessing it's not a good idea to try and just replace the bearing cage, and I...
