Our 2001 ts sportwagon has been making noises like that for yonks..spoke to Martin at AFH1 about it and he agreed with my diagnosis of upper arb bushes; on the ts they mount on the upper side of the subframe with no room to change 'em without dropping the subframe, engine etc...its not got any worse over the years, so I've left them until something else in that area needs doing. If I brake hard and hit some rough road its sometimes like a bloke with a hammer in the footwell....very difficult to replicate, and in hot weather she sqeeks like an old bed occasionally but I'll tolerate it. HTH.
