    sounds like the dv could be knackered.

    they can all still fail if not serviced.

    the main types are diaphragm like oem and piston. (diverter valves)


    diaphragms and orings can split.

    its a simple task of servicing it.

    "thought u cud get special valves that release the boost in different ways"

    the standard Bosh item is a diaphram and is a diverter valve. it recycles the excess air back into the system.

    you can get aftermarket diaphragm valves or piston valves.

    then there is Dump valves, which make that awful whoosh, and whilst they are not best suited to the 1.8T, they can be made to work apparently.

    stick to an aftermarket diverter valve, and your be able to retain the oem system, and service it, and the car wont know the difference.

    Re: 1.8T flutter

    quite possible .

    if you bought the car like it, you wouldnt know what your missing, or it could have got worse over time.

    the fluttering can be caused by split diaphragm or orings and the air blowing past.
    other sources are wastegate chatter, but ive never heard it, or seen it,
    where as i have heard DV flutter.


    OEM dv is approx 15 new. service kits for DV (once you found out if it has been changed, and what it is), should be no more than this.

    Re: 1.8T flutter

    So i'm hoping wat ur saying mate is that u think its more than likely the DV making the flutter? its been fully seviced by audi and the last was about 6000 miles ago... is this not something they wud check out and or service?

    If it is the diverter valve (sounds very much like it) then you can replace it yourself easily - takes about 10 minutes.

    I would go for an after market one - loads better quality than the plastic ones that are standard.

    Do you have a cone filter or similar aftermarket air intake fitted? The DV can be heard through these when the OE airbox is removed and it sounds just like a loud flutter, as if it were knackered...

    If the car is standard and you still have the noise then, as already mentioned here, your DV is probably in need of renewal.

    Cheers

    No point at all in getting the garage to do it. The DV is easy to change, located at the top back right of the engine bay (secured with only 2 or 3 hoseclips).

    Take a look in the FAQ section on this board, its all covered in there.
