- T5 SE 140
Had the shocks replaced now too. Didn't hear the sound for the first 100km. This Friday out for a long weekend,,, so let's see what happens.

It sounds abnormal, so something that the dealer should sort out under warranty.I'm another casualty of 'twang and clunk' from drivers side front. Started after about 1400 miles and in the short space of time to 1550 it happening a fair bit.
Some of the twangs (which is the release of stored enegry somewhere, so either by thermal expansion/contraction or movement of a suspension part) can be felt through the pedals. They are always provoked by undulations in the road but not necessarily undulations that load up the shock absorbers very much. For example I can go over sleeping policemen with no noises. Then many more smaller sounding clunks. All it takes is cornering either way (loading or unloading the front offside wheel it feels and sounds like its this side).
Any updates from people who haven't had the Cali lowered?
When mine was done the mechanic (ex VW) said that the replacement was the improved version as fitted to the T6. I had both sides done .... just in case!I had this on my front right suspension. It is a known problem with the T5 (.1). The spring turns when turning the steering wheel. To make the spring turning on top there is a ball bearing. Mine was causing the noise. First at breaking and turning to the right. Then on every corner to the right at the end. I had to replace the ball bearing on top of the spring together with a new support and rubber.
From time to time the front left is starting the same noise.
