2004 berlingo rear torsion bar making a noise
Hi Everyone

I have looked on the net to find a answer and I'm struggling...

When driving down the road and I go over a bump or speed bump there is a load twang from the rear... I'm an electrician so I have checked the back incase it was my ladders but it wasn't!
Then I jacked the rear passenger side up by the sill.
And as I went up the rear torsion bar trailing arm didn't move then it would release and twang. And it would do this a few times while jacking the van up...
And the same when lowering ...
Help me I don't m ow what to try ..
Thanks in advanced
Try the spring,on the rear brake compensator. It was doing it on mine, greased it up, problem solved.
Somedays you're the pigeon, Somedays you're the statue.
I've had a look at the spring has snapped ...
It makes this noise like the exhaust is banging when you drive it aswell.. ( but its not)
Does it sound like a cracking or creaking noise. Confusedcratch:
Try opening the back doors, stand on the edge and bounce.
You should be able to pin point the noise with someone's help. :thumbsup:

I've jumped on the back and nothing happened think Tomo I shall have another go.
But it just seemed like the torsion bar arm was stiff, and like it would try to move then all of a sudden release making the creaky sound
If the wheel suddenly releases/drops when you jack it up from the sill jack point it could be your swinging arm seizing up! Confusedillyme:

How do I repair this? If this is the case. I have sprayed some wd-40 earlier today .
If it is the swinging arm bearings then I would go for a recon'd back axle.
(worst case scenario). Sad
Have a read of this. :thumbsup:
