1997 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130, 00 miles
I have fixed just about everything on this car that I thought could possibly make any noise. I replaced both axles thinking it would cure the problem and it didn't. Here's my problem when I back up it makes a clunking noise. If I take it out of reverse it stops making the noise. I have had the car a little over a year and a half and it was like this when I bought it. The noise hasn't gotten worse or gone away. I had a VW mechanic look at it and he said it wasn't the transmission, but he couldn't tell me what it was. He suggested jacking the car up and spinning the wheels to see if anything hit that could make the noise, but it didn't. Could it be the motor/transmission mounts?
have the same problem?
