The passats are notorious for this concern. Unfortunatly there is no real fix. Its is just the load from the trans when in drive or reverse with the foot brake on. This is somewhat of normal operation.
If this advise has been helpful, please accept.
I'll be here Joe.
thank you for your help. Believe it or not replacing the axles solved the problem. The inner joint must have been translating engine vibration to steering wheel when brake was applied. Maybe this info will help someone else. Appreciate all you did. Thanks
Your welcome Joe. Its good to know the axle repaired this.
