Title: Creaking from rear passenger wheel under braking?!
Post by: ChrisDaGas on April 01, 2021, 01:17:07 pm
Hello, I have a 06 GTI with a horrendous creaking noise coming from the rear when applying the brakes. It only happens when the car gets up to temperature and only when braking. Found a YouTube link on here with the noise but there were no solutions, any help would be muuuuch appreciated.

Mine has developed this as well over the past couple of days under the same circumstances. At the minute I strongly suspect it's a knackered suspension component rather than brakes.

The dust covers/bump stops on both of my rear shocks busted apart at some point so it's possible the driver's side shock has packed in because of it. I'm also going to take a look at the rear drop links and ARB bushings. You could check those areas :happy2:
