Hello Martin,

I faintly remember that there was a common problem with Mk 5's having problems starting when warm (not cold). I can't remember if there was accompanying thumping noises upon starting. As I never had this problem with my Mk 5 I never looked into it further but if you do a few Google searches you might be able to find more info.

Sorry I can't be more help,

Yes the thumping is a common problem and so is the thumping according to other sites

Do they suffer from top mounts hav a knocking noise near side front. Changed drop link everything else is all ok
