    a3 quattro back wheel came off

    hope you can help ,i have an a3 1.8 quattro and was driving round a round about and the nearside rear wheel came off,i went about 10 meters before it came to a halt. the bolts used were not long enough and they only haad about 3 threads on them.
    got the wheel back on and looked under car could see no damage (apart from bumper that had been ripped off) so set off again, no noises or any thing apart from when doing a full lock forward turn now left or right i get a judder feeling from the back end of the car.
    has the haldex wound itself up ? i can see no broken parts under car or bent bits
