    a3 1.8T quattro

    Hi

    Can anyone help explain a vibration noise I hear when driving the car. It comes from the dash directly in front of me where I sit when I am driving where the instrument panel is....

    The car runs smoothly, I thought it may be a fan, but I turned of the heating/air conditioning and it is still there.....

    is it just the nature of the pitch of the engine causing the vibration. I dont know as I have not driving this car for long...

    Kind Regards

    Tim

    i can say i get some small vibrations to but they dont come from behind the dash it just seems to be if i let of the throttle from high revs an let the revs come down naturally it seems to vibrate the exhaust very slightly which in turn shakes the car a bit.
