Golf mk7 / Re: Small clunk when driving over speedbumps
« Last post by clubsport on 18 May 2021, 13:17 »
Literally impossible to diagnose over the net, unseen.

However on the mileage front, it could be worn suspension top mount bush at the top of the suspension or worn anti roll bar bush at the lower end.

Open bonnet and try to bounce to hear the first and jack up car to check the roll bar bush for wear and any play

Neither parts are expensive....... of course these may not be the problem?
Good luck!

Sorry madstaff... I was typing away... at least we have the same idea?

First thing id be looking for is for play in the anti-roll bar drop link.

Make sure the springs not broke, then its check for play in the ball-joint, top-mount, etc.

Golf mk7 / Small clunk when driving over speedbumps
« Last post by ccsgti on 18 May 2021, 12:52 »
As title really. 13 plate on 47k. When driving over a speed bump there seems to be a clunk coming from the front drivers side.

Any thoughts?

The one negative is the VW centre caps don’t fit so I currently have the RC Design centre caps fitted. I might try and find a set of domed stick on VW emblems, but I don’t mind the RC Design caps.

They look great on the car  :cool:

It looks like domed stickers may well sit on the caps ok due to the shape of them, worth a punt as they’re quite cheap.
What diameter are the caps?

Thanks Exonian. The centre caps are 60mm diameter.

If you think OEM Alloys white work badly, the aftermarket copies are destroyed after 3 months in winter. If you're considering buying a set of 18's to use as beaters why not get a set of Pretoria styles for the same price?

Agree. The quality of finish on some of the cheap aftermarket replicas is quite poor - especially some of the Chinese copies. I wouldn’t replace a set of OEM diamond cut alloys with a set of cheap diamond cut replicas if the main reason for replacing the OEM alloys was white worm corrosion.

You can get a set of four 18” Pretoria replicas from CM Wheels for £480 in gloss gum metal, gloss black or quartz silver. Link to the gunmetal version below;

3 door manual, perfect!

My thoughts too! Not many of those around in 7.5 flavour.



Lovely car Pete and welcome!  :smiley:

Is the *r36* Passat related or Skyline?

They do look good indeed, but 13Kg.. damn!!! Anyway, many thanks for the help guys.

The Sparco Podio and ATS Racelight are much lighter.


Definitely look to be those V1's - wheel nerd membership renewed  :nerd:

I failed, was searching for Oettinger felgen  :embarrassed:

 The bodywork add ons may well have been Oettinger, I didn’t take too much notice of them, but the splitter and spoilers were red herrings!  :grin:
