Inner CV boot on pass side tore, spewing grease over exhaust manifold resulting in smoke. Inner CV boot, drivers side leaking. Replaced. Discovered during problem 1.
During a clutch job, it was discovered that the snub mount on this car was completely destroyed.
This is part of the case and caused by a design issue. Thankfully, issue is common so there is a $300 fix. Bad news, it killed the clutch early
passenger-side CV boot cracked and leaking lubricant, removed, cleaned, lubricated and installed new CV boot.
In extremely cold weather, the wheel bearings make loud noises when cornering and accelerating. Dealership attributed it to tire noise. Will revisit if it occurs with different tires.
Right inner cv boot completely torn, left outer cracked and leaking grease with clicking when turning left. Both shafts replaced with aftermarket parts
Replaced driver's side front half shaft.
Throw-out bearing was fried. Replaced bearing, clutch and oh-so-expensive dual mass flywheel. RIDICULOUS!! Oh and I just lost my job a week ago. This is awesome! And the hits they just keep a coming...
Whinning and vibration coming from left rear of car. Dealer replaced left rear wheel bearing fixing the problem.
The throw-out bearing in the clutch self destructed itself. Which inturn damaged the the fly wheel and the transmission case snout it is housed on. I naturally replaced all my clutch parts while they were in there. That bearing should not die at 60k.
Replaced the Front passenger side half-shaft becasue CV boot closest to trasmission was torn. Typical problem on turbo models due to how close the boot is to the exhaust manifold. Easy repair, but axle was very expensive.
Boot on front driver axle/cv was cracked. Replaced the axle.
Drivers side axle half-shaft was leaking at the inner boot, had that replaced.
