Upper strut bushing

Recommended Posts

I've got a strange creaking sound coming from the passenger side front wheel. I've been told it's the upper strut bushing, but I don't see that on the parts lists. Any help? Thanks

No help? The creaking is driving me nuts.

not sure what that is either, but maybe it is one of these?

Some people call the bump stop a strut bushing - 996-343-301-02-M58

The upper strut mount has a bushing fused in it - I don't think the bushing is replaceable, rather you would replace the whole upper strut mount - 997-343-018-01-M100

and then while I call it a bearing, I have seen people call it a bushing - the steering bearing that sits at the top of the strut against the strut mount allowing the strut to rotate - 996-343-515-05-M100

not sure it does, but I hope that helps

my money is on the strut mount, BTW; and I would replace on both sides at same time if the car has a lot of miles - you need an alignment after replacing that part anyway
