VW 2011 V6 ROUTAN rattling

Asked by Jun 30, 2017 at 03:04 PM about the 2011 Volkswagen Routan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2011 vw routan v6 has a rattling sound that seems to go
away for a little while once the AC is turned off.  Also when
the rpms accelerate past 1500 the noise goes away until
idling again. The noise is very loud under the car and seems
to be coming from behind the passenger wheel. Ive read
about ac compressors, belly pan and heat shield but am not
sure what the diagnosis is.

Has anybody else had this problem? Any mechanics fixed
something similar? Help is greatly appreciated ! Thank you in
advance.

Could be one of your pulleys, like the Belt tensioner. Common issue that any shop can diagnose and repair.
