noises from the glove compartment area (passenger side)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 996tt. When I drive over a bump or a ditch, I can hear a loud clunk coming from around the passenger-side footwell area. I thought it comes from loose objects in the glove compartment, but I've emptied the compartment, the clunk is still there. I can not pin-point where the noise comes from, does anyone know?

Look under your passenger seat to make sure there is nothing rolling around down there. Noise can be very hard to detect it's true origin. I had a clunk in my first 996. I thought it was coming from the back seat. I had it for almost a year. Drove me crazy. Finally I took a really good look under the seats and there it was... A very small screwdriver under the passenger seat from the previous owner.. After that no more "clunk".....

It's worth a try...

Good luck..

I had the same issue and I had someone sit in the passenger side to listen for the sound. We also found a screw driver (normal size) left by the prior owner. I also found that the clamp that holds the pluming up and together that is under the car and under the passenger side door was broken (bottom half missing) and I replaced it with a new one. The noise was the result of the screw driver, but I think the broken clamp could also cause some noise.
