What's the knocking in my 2008 Volkswagen Transporter?
What's the knocking in my 2008 Volkswagen Transporter?

Asked on 23 August 2017 by Peter Tumata

Answered by Dan Powell
Knocking noises are usually related to the suspension. Bushes and rear springs are common failure areas on the Volkswagen Transporter T5. Alternatively, if knocking is heard from the steering, then you might need to replace the lower part of the column. For the full list of known issues with the Transporter T5, see: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/volkswagen/trans...d
