falling to bits but I should get there
I've been holding off asking theses questions cause I'm a little paranoid and not looking forward to seeing the answers or the list but here goes.
my 128k 1.9 tdi AFN automatic is getting a bit ill and making some odd noises.
1st fault is the front end, it's knocking, clicking, squeaking and generally shot. I got this bit covered, I've ordered a full set of shocks & springs, myele control arms, front arb bushes. I also ordered new rear axle bushes and new top mounts. I think that's it for suspension bits.
2nd fault is again with the front end but only really happens when going slow and turning. When doing this there is a clicking semi grinding noise. Turning the steering wheel left or right it will feel like it hits a bump stop but if you roll the car the steering wheel will free up and carry on turning, as long as the car is moving.
3rd fault is a new one that I only noticed over the last week. When reversing in to parking bay or slowly, there is a odd rubbing noise. I can't work out which side or where its coming from, I just know its from the back end when reversing slowly. I've fitted new rear wheel bearings when I did the disks and pads about 6 months ago.
4th fault is front end again, there is a on off humming noise when doing over 40. I'm not sure which side but I'm sure its a wheel bearing.
5th fault is basically a coolant smell in side the cab when heat is on. I think its a leaking heater matrix but I'm not loosing any coolant. At the moment I'm going go let this smell go and get worse till I can where its coming from. The is no damp stops, no condensation just smell.
that's its that's my fault. Any thoughts, solutions or ideas are welcome.
selling the car is no an option, I enjoy it and like it to much.
