It's been a good few years but I'm now back in an Audi.... bought myself an '07 Sprint Blue S3 with 24k miles and a nice few extras....
I'm happy with the car so far but I have a few wee niggles that I hope you guys can help with.
1) When I lift off the throttle I hear a 'click' from under the bonnet - it sounds like a relay or something similar. This happens at all speeds when I lift off. Is this normal on the S3?
2) When the engine is cold there is a rotational 'rubbing' noise from the engine bay at the left-hand side around the alternator area. This goes away pretty quickly when the engine starts to warm up (usually gone within 2 mins of driving). I've had a search on the forum for similar issues and some older posts suggest it could be tensioners/pulleys... any other ideas, or is that the most likely culprit?
I'm obvously hoping these issues are minor, but knowning Audi I'll need to part with some cash!
Apart from that the car is ace - I forgot how complete a package the S3 is until I drove one again.
Cheers for any assistance
