Volkswagen Subframe Parts
Volkswagen is the largest auto manufacturer in Germany, as well as the third biggest in the world. The VW brand has had three of their vehicle lines in the top 10 best selling list and still has those makes at the top of the same list with the most vehicles still being produced on it today. The company ranks third in distributing the most money in the industry to the research and development of their new vehicles. They also have a huge line with high quality products, and more specifically, with their subframe and components. Your Volkswagen’s subframe is a part of your chassis, containing the engine and steering. Subframes have been used on vehicles since for almost 50 years and are regularly created from welded steel joined to the body with bolts. The subframe makes it possible to build the steering, engine, and transmission, all in one area, as well as mount the finished system, in your Volkswagen, in a seperate location. One of the more frequent problems that can go wrong within your VW’s subframe is within the bushings. But first, it is important to inspect your Volkswagen’s shock mounts before going to though any more diagnosing. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s subframe parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are waiting to assist and support you with any questions you have.

If the Volkswagen’s subframe bushings are worn out, you will usually notice that the vehicle wants to steer on itself with a loss of driver control. Also, when you are backing on a hill, like a driveway or something similar, onto a flat area, you will feel play in the back. Another warning sign of this issue is when you jack up your Volkswagen; one side of the subframe is noticeably lower than the other. You can pop up the rear end of your VW and use a pry bar to inspect the bushings for up, down, and side to side play, as well. When examing, you should not see any action. It is important to not forget to take off the bushing cover plates before examining them. Your Volkswagen‘s subframe connectors link together the front and rear subframes, managing to spread high chassis loads over an expansive section of sheet metal in order to separate the vibration from the entire VW body. It is important to properly diagnose your subframe issues before repairing or replacing unnecessary parts. If you are not convinced of the diagnosis, bring your Volkswagen to a trusted mechanic.
