I have a 2013 VW Sportwagen TDI. I have been driving with my windows down and recently started hearing a noise (don’t hear it when windows are up). The sound only seems to appear when I first start driving the car (after a few miles it seems to stop or at least is much less frequent), as I slowly (normal) accelerate and especially as I turn into a corner… I hear a loud “ticking” sound. It “ticks” 6-12 times (over about 5 sec) and then stops altogether. The sound has a very metallic character.
I looked at a youtube video demonstrating diagnosing and repairing of the CV joint(s) and am not convinced this is my problem. The tone and frequency of the “tick” sound shown in the video is way different than what I am hearing with my car.
