After having my car at vw battersea for the best part of a week, i collected it only to hear my dreaded rattle had not gone. I didn't evevn get out of their carpark before i went back in to tell them. after taking there guy for a test drive he confirmed it had a rattle on the rear (?) but no idea where it was coming from . he suggested it wasn't suspension.....
they replaced the antiroll bar drop links but to no avail.Has anyone had shock absorber failure on these cars yet?
Btw its an 07 3.0 v6 tdi altitude
thanks

may sound daft but the hazard triangle in left boot compartment may not be strapped in properly ,it stands vertical in a plastic sleeve with velcro strap to secure
+ there,s the tow eye,spanners etc under boot floor & even the boot floor itself can rattle if not fitted properly

Hi
Just wondering if you resolved the rattle ? Mine has a similar noise from the rear suspension, not been to the dealer for a check yet but I will have to take it in the not too distant future and was wondering if you had a soloution.

Cheers
