stabilizer bars

Recommended Posts

my 987(1000 miles on it) started to make a lot of noise coming from rear and front suspension, especially in irregular roads, took it to the dealer and they told the stabilizer bars were lose at the ends, so after putting the car on a lift, nuts were taken off put on some thread lock and put them back again and tightened them with a simple wrench, no torque wrench, he really made a great effort to tighten them, drove the car and noises are not present, even the car feels tighter, my question is he should use a torque wrench, any damage done if they are overtightened, or not an important issue?

I would say not important at all. It may not be "torqued" but its "tight" and thats pretty much all that matters on something like that. If the cars feels better dont bog yourself down in trying to find something wrong that the technician did.

Have your dealer read TSB 3/05 4078 Rattling Noises From The Area Of The Front And Rear Axle - dated 7-6-05. It specifically covers these noises and their cure.

thks, by any chance could you tell me what the TSB says, not to confident about the dealer, the other nearest dealer is very far away, would help me a lot.

Here is a brief overview...

On above-mentioned vehicles, the hexagon nut on the threaded connection for the stabilizer/connecting link can become loose on the front or rear axle due to loss of preload. This leads to rattling noises from the area of the front and/or rear stabilizer.

Therefore, connecting links with a fastening bolt thread extended by 10 mm and an appropriately extended hexagon nut need to be installed on the front and rear axle as of the introduction date listed below.

In the event of a customer complaint, the previously installed connecting links must to be replaced on all four wheel suspensions by connecting links with the fastening bolt thread extended by 10 mm and be secured with the new extended hexagon nut.
