    will it be cover under warranty?

    I kerbed by A3 SB a week or so ago. Had the n/s front wishbone and ball joint replaced. i've had the car now for a few days and noticed a what sounds like a knackered wheel bearing (not sure though). unsure the kerbing and "new noise" are related but do you think it could be covered under warranty? before you asked the car is only 2 years old. thanks

    So let me get this right.

    You have had work done on your car to 'fix' your kerbing incident (I'm assuming you didn't get this done at an Audi garage) and you expect Audi to rectify it under warranty?

    Why didn't you take it to Audi in the first instance? Kerbing a car can cause a lot more damage than is apparent to the 'untrained' eye. I know its a bit late but, I would have taken it to Audi for a thorough check in the first place.

    Why not take it back to the place that fitted your new wishbone and ball joint to ask the question?

    Rather than try it on with Audi who I would guess are going to tell you to take a run and jump if they spot that you've had work done on that side of the car. Sorry if that sounds harsh but, the moral here is don't try and cut corners when your car has been in an accident - unless of course you know what you're doing

    i did take it to Audi, as the car was in for another warranty issue, they look at the damage and highlighted the wishbone issue after a good inspection as the bend was only minor and took a while to find out. they gave me a quote but understood that the due to (well what was) a minor repair that i would go else where. Is it worth going back to Audi to get a better diagnosis? I'm not really the kind of person to cut corner but Audi labour rates are too expensive imho. the car is driveable but not as good as it was. what you guys think??

    Try a VAG approved independent garage. The one I use charges a third of the labour rate that Audi do.
