Re: R newbee in Baltimore area (mihaj)

Hmm. Your PS leak is the clamp, almost all 04's had this problem, the new style clamp is your cure<br>Where is your noise, front or rear?<br>If in front, the most common problem is the axles splines which have to be Locktited, this is more of a clicking than a clunk.<br>If in the rear, have fun <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> ...

Re: R newbee in Baltimore area (JRL)

Congrats! An R is worth driving for. I traveled to many states myself until I found the right 2004 myself.<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks guys!<p>I dropped my R off this morning at Koons in Owings Mills. Will see what they can do. Hopefully, they can gat it done in reasonably time, because I miss it allready. I drove my 850 this morning........ you know.<p>The clicking noise is definitely coming from the front and mainly driver’s side.<p>One more question. I'm a sound junky. I dont like it loud but I like it good. My R has all the options but the subwoofer. And now I.m thinking, should I spend $450 for the stock sub or go with aftermarket? And how about the head unit?<p>Thanks again,<br>Mike<br>

Re: R newbee in Baltimore area (blackTT55)

I did not ask.........<br>And now I'm getting the looks.......<br>But we are spliting up anyway. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> I guess bying my R was a recoil from the situation that I'm in. Don't feel bad just stay with your dream and move towards it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Cheers! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

That's what the field tech did to mine after two loctites and a hub replacement didn't work.

Re: (mihaj)

Dan's cool. Very good w/TNN's when I show it to him. I go there too with my R car. Bought it there as well. Don't know much about Bruce - seems like I nice guy. They do good work there, but they are mod-unfriendly.
