2011 VR6 FSI LUX
It does sound like a bad bearing noise.Hello, I have a loud whirring noise coming from below the centre console.
It's the exact same sound as described in this youtube video.
This is on my 2013 TDI, with almost 190 000km. This video is at low speed, and is worse when cold. At higher speed it sometimes comes and goes away random.Th...youtube.com
He says its the bearing and not the rubber mount and he had to replace the entire drive shaft.
Can someone please expand on this issue for me? It is absolutely necessary to replace the entire part? Seems expensive!
If it were the rubber mount you would most likely hear a knocking noise from under the center armrest. You can check the bearing mount by crawling underneath and seeing if there is excessive play in it.
