Volkswagen Control Arms and Bushings
Volkswagen is a German automaker, as well as the largest German vehicle producer, and third manufacturer in the world. The VW brand has had three of their vehicle lines in the top 10 for best sellers of all time and still find themselves at the top of the list with the most cars listed that are still produced today. Volkswagen ranks third in directing the most money out of their competitors toward the research and development of new technologies. They also hold a vast catalog with high quality products, and more specifically, with their control arm parts and components. The control arms on your Volkswagen are triangular looking suspension parts that link your vehicle's wheel hubs to the chassis. The contact point within your control arms and the chassis has round rubber bushings that cut down the shaking transference and keep metal-to-metal contact away from the arms and chassis. If the bushings become wet for any reason or get contaminated, they can start to squeak when you driving over bump roads. During regular service checks, it is a great idea to test out the control arm bushings for any symptoms of wear, like cracks, flaking or decay, which can also bring on unusual sounds. To alleviate any squeaking, slide beneath your Volkswagen with some silicone spray lubricant. Put the spray’s straw into the lubricant's nozzle and put the tip of the straw into the space around the front lower control arm bushing. Make sure to spray some quick lubricant bursts right in this area. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s control arm parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are always on hand and ready to assist you.
