Has anyone had any problems with a slight rattle on the rear suspension at low (20 mph or less )speeds? sounds like antiroll bar links or shocks mounts to me . But at 20 thousand miles??????

Depends what you mean by ' rattle' dssean - I have a noise that sounds like the exhaust system mountings moving at similar speeds. I was goinig to mention this at the first service as I am not unduly worried - has happened from new( in October) - now at 4000m and about to drive to southern Spain.
Are we talking about the same thing? Anyone else help?

steel, and its deffinately a light rattle, only at very low speed. seems to be in time with the rear wheels on bumps, i suppose it could be exhaust..

... actually went out and checked out mine - I have re-convinced myself it's the exhaust mountings. It's not a metallic rattle but it is at very low speed as in multi storey car parks etc. I would be really surprised if your shock mountings have gone at 20k - or any bushes come to that

I got confirmation that its the rear antiroll bar links o(r Drop arms ) from VW battersea today also they are replacing my N/S mirror as its slow to fold . blimey 21,000 miles and the suspensions shot allready not a good start ,only had it 1 month.......should be ready thursday .
