I swear to God, it's like I find a new rattle everyday.

This makes:

-Under driver's side dash.
-Rear Hatch Area (x34)
-Doors.
-Passenger Window creaks when it rolls.
-Something in the rear passenger side area.
-Some type of clunk in the left rear shock area.

It's fucking bullshit.

I got a 2011 Jetta Loaner today, the base model - prob around 16k. It had no rattles! But my 31k GTI does.

I meant 31k price, not miles - miles wise I have only 8k.

My bad.

Yeah, at 8k I was still silent.

I'm about at the point of taking it to the dealer and telling them I don't want it back until the rattles are gone.

Apparently, there are TSBs from VWoA concerning almost every type of rattle imaginable.

It also lists Warranty Pay for rattles.

Where? Every dealer I've been to about it acts like you are crazy and does nothing. Do tell

Has anyone figured out a good fix to reduce the rattle/vibration that comes from the glasses hatch in the center roof console? I have k04 with eurojet exhaust which creates a different vibration through the car around 1800 rpm

There are tons of TSBs over on the Touareg boards.

Simple shit like rattles and swirl marks.

And they get paid for it.

Hi guys, first post here. I don't have a GTI yet. Two years ago I bought my son a brand new Passat. Few days later, I noticed some rattling noise coming near the windshield on the right side. I took it to the dealership, they changed the wiper. but the noise was still there. When the VW survey came, I said problem wasn't fixed. That almost got the tech fired. The dealership's service departments manager called me personally to ask me to come back to let him have a look.

He rode around with me, first he said he didn't hear anything, but I knew it was there. Then he used tapes to tape certain sections of where the windshild meets the frame, did that several times until we could isolate the spot. Then he injected some kind of sealant in that area, kept the car for the night. The noise was gone. I asked him not to fire the tech and he didn't. I didn't want a poor kid fired over little stuff like that.

Anyway, I know this is not related to this thread but just wanted to share.

Just to throw my experience in, I was convinced I had noise coming from the rear hatch closure. I adjusted the rubber stops but it didn't improve. I recently had my 30K service and they said that it was all due to the tire change hardware moving around in the styrofoam tray. It's been good as new ever since. I am thinking I will wrap all of the tools in rags to make the fit a little tighter in the tray.

Eureka! I've been listening to a loud THUMP coming from the trunk area for over a week. I tightened the spare and the jack tools, but it didn't help. Finally tracked it to the cover for the spare area. It was popping up on hitting bumps. The fit is critical: The fix is 1. raise the rear seats.
2. pull the covers strap to move the cover rearward, making sure the rear edge slides under the lip at the rear that secures it.
3. tuck in the front edge of the cover so that the seats will press against it.
4. raise the seats and make sure they are locked securely. Now:
You should have no more banging sounds.

Still can't solve the sunroof sunshade rattle when the weather is cold! Wish someone would find a solution...
