Rattle from transmission area when on low RPM


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Got a strange rattle, like a loose plate, which comes from the transmission area when the car is driving and on low RPM, around the gearstick area. I've checked the obvious things like exhaust shields but all seem solid. Noise goes away once RPM increases.

Car is a TT 5 speed manual SWB. 

Thanks

In the first instance, make sure that the upper and lower rubber dust boots (pictures 6 and 7 in the guide below) are present and correctly

fitted to stop road and transmission noise getting into the cabin.

thanks for the reply mate. I'm going to check this and feedback but not fully sure that might be the issue

Another thing to check are the heat shields on the downpipes. The fixings can fail around the head of the bolts from heat cycles and/or corrosion.

and allow them to rattle. I had the same symptoms (and fault)  on my UK spec with a low speed metallic rattle which would go away with some revs.
