    Play in top mounts?????

    Hey,

    Had my S3 serviced recently and was told the suspension top mounts have a small amount of play. When im driving it it feels 'loose' and wondered if anyone can help in shedding some light on how to fix this?
    I was thinking possibly replace the bushes but dont know if this will help?

    Any info would be great!

    Cheers

    Tom

    top mounts are common, about 15 each or less from audi, and is a sraight forward job, replace the bearing's whilst you change the top mounts as well as they are only cheap

    Just had mine done and made a lot of difference to how the car rides.

    Didn't quite follow S3APY's response to this. Translation please.
