Hello and Welcome to justanswer...
Hi there - Is the noise more prominant when the steering is on lock / turn?
i was just driving
is it a load clicking / clacking noise?
we used to put playing cards in the spokes of our bikes when young, it sounds like tick-tick-tick
I need to find someone around me, but wanted to know what I am asking for and cost
ok well, on these models, you can get a worn driveshaft / cv joint which will make a clacking noise when they go worn - this is normally quite loud and and always worse on cornering -- It sounds though as it may not be that as it doesn't seem to fit what you are describing - You will need to jack the car up and grab hold of the wheel - and shake it .. from top to bottom and side to side - see if there is any play - indicating a problem with the wheel bearing or similar -
If nothing is found - no play etc - then the wheel will need to be removed and a physical insoection of the brakes - as the fault then can only be there -
Cost is always difficult to say from here - as we dont know at this point exactly whats wrong - costs will differ depending on what is found
You dont need to use a dealer - any local garage / shop can sort this easily for you if its something you cant do yourself.
does it have anything to do with making groaning sounds sometimes. I always think someone needs to oil something because it sounds rusty. My mom says shocks
Given that description - is the noise "rotational" - ie, as you drive - keeping pace with the car road speed ?
There is a sound when I go faster and stops with my foot off the gas pedal
The ticking sound is new and very loud though
Ok, its going to be something with either of the above then - wheel bearing, brakes etc as above. It will need to be checked out as above to find it.
If you can get someone to jack it up and check it as above, you will find it Im sure of that.
I love my VWs, but I can take it anywhere to fix?
Do you know any places in the Blaine, MN area?
Yes , most any shop can deal with it just fine for you - and it will be a lot cheaper than a VW dealer - Im afraid I dont know your area specifically - but do a local google search or yellow pages - you will find a good palce for sure-
