I am going to take the tech for a ride today to "enlighten" him on the noise I hear every day for the past couple of months. It sounds like a heat shield rattle or a skid plate loose. It seems to be coming from the front left. I know the techs hate to chase rattles but it's driving me nuts. I'll post what they find.
Please do let us know.
Also, is it very faint? Almost un-noticeable to the "average" clueless driver?
When it happens it is such a relatively quite noise that some people in the driver seat can't hear it. Cabin needs to be nearly silent to hear it for me.
I've recorded a video clip. Can you all listen to this and tell me if its the same noise you are getting?
I've read a lot of wk2 owners having to get the wheel bearings replaced. However that seems it would be a constant and louder noise than this.
Maybe this is the disc brake shield?
Around 27 second mark it comes in pretty clear. It's more like a clickity clickity clickity click! Then goes away..
Please read video description and listen to entire clip.
