    engine whine. whatever next.

    Just dropped my s3 down for a service and there had been a whine which has gradually been getting worse, and as I pulled up to the garage it was making a right racket... typical. Anyway Iv asked them to have a look and see if they can source the problem, I think its powersteering related as it seems to change note when steering. Could the powersteering pump be failing? or could the rack cause it, hope not as its had a new rack at 50k. Anybody had such an issue, I need to know best/worst case

    hope its nothing too expensive

    lack of fluid or a leak letting air in. the racks should be pretty hardy

    well just collect the car after being shafted for a nice sum. All serviced with smooth doors and adjusted handbrake, feels lovely. Its come back with a few item for my attention. First off matt was right ad its leaking on the cooler, noise was just lack of fluid. There is also a few bulbs gone on the 3rd brake light and low on antifreeze. Also says 'front anti-roll bar collars broken'... the guy says i need a new antiroll bar. Perfect excuse for a bigger one maybe
