2007 Volkswagen Golf Repair Question
Volkswagen Golf Noise Problem
Of all those parts, only one engine mount will cause a noise when switching between drive and reverse. There are at least two other engine mounts that won't cause a noise.
There is a tool you might be able to borrow or rent from an auto parts store that borrows them called the "Chassis Ear". It is a set of six microphones, a switch box, and headphones. You clip the microphones to suspect points, then drive around while listening with the headphones. You can move the microphones around to zero in on the source of the noise. Be aware that many mechanics have never seen or even heard of this tool. Suspension and alignment mechanics use it to find rattles, squeaks, and other noises.
