    funny sound under my s3

    hi guys

    started to notice this funny clicking type sound under the car when bringing the clutch up under load also when hitting the throttle hard, sounds like someting is rocking or shaking that should't be. checked out the exhaust all seems well.

    any ideas

    cheers

    Have you checked the heat sheild! Had something similar and a couple of the bolts had rusted and fell apart allowing it to rattle, sound really bad.

    Hi and welcome to the site!

    Have you got any more info on the noise? Can you pinpoint where it's coming from, front/rear? Does it sound like a mechanical noise or more of a rattling like mentioned?

    Dog bone mount allowing things to touch under load would be my guess
