    Car gone into dealers - fan issue!!!!

    Hi Guys,

    Was driving home last night when the sterring wheel started vibrating! At first I thought it could be the tyre but the FT indicator wasn't on but I stopped and checked and all was OK.
    After a bit of investigating I found out that it's something to do with the fan! For example I set it to windscreen and the fan speed obviously goes pretty much to the top on the display and it sounded like a plane! Turning it down to just under half way and the fan slows down and quietens down. Turned the engine off and tired again and it does the same and the sterring whell and dash just vibrates and shakes. Called Audi this morning and they came pretty quick but said it needed to go to the dealers. So it is now there and I am waiting for a courtesy car to be delivered. Pain in the arse really as I bet I get a Corsa or something and I am off to Twickenham tomorrow and was really looking forward to the drive down.

    If it's gone to an Audi dealer then you will get an Audi courtesy car.... Sounds like a weird problem!

    I took my car into an Audi dealer for some warranty work and ended up with a VW Fox!?

    Yeah it is weird, car not even 3 months old either!

    They did say they would try for an Audi but if none available I could get anything!

    Will let you know what the outcome is.

    could be a diode inside the fans its common for them to go, oddly enough usually its the aircon fan though im assuming due to the vibration its the bigger of the two going being the engine fan

    Lol I know Ryan. The first 2 were great but last was a pig, which is one of the reasons I changed to Audi. They have given me a 1.4 Astra with 3 hub caps, nice!!

    Yeah not sure at the moment, the dealer has said they are looking into it but it does seem to be coming from just behind the dash. Although I am surprised something has gone already as it is less than 3 months old.

    Just got back from picking my car up and turns out a trim clip had come loose and got stuck. Very impressed with the service though and the car was a lot cleaner than when I left it!
