Noisy VW rear suspension
Some owners of 2005-2008 VW Jetta A5, 2006-2008 Rabbit, GTI, Passat and Passat Wagon and 2007-2008 Eos may complain about a rear suspension noise. A rubber lower spring plate is available to eliminate this noise.
When replacing rear coil springs or working on a suspected rear spring noise, verify that the lower spring plate is rubber or a galvanized unit. If a galvanized spring plate is found, replace this with the rubber version, P/N 1K0512297 D.
