    Rear shock absorber sleeve

    Hi, I have just noticed on the nearside rear of my 05 a3 2 tdi se the sleeve which covers the strut of the shocker has fell off! Looking at the other side it appears to be plastic. Has anyone experienced this problem? Or does anyone know if this part is available? I believe this coukd of been the cause of a rattle also.
    Many thanks
    Richard

    I also have this problem. About a month ago I noticed the offside wasn't there and in the last week I've noticed the nearside is also now missing.

    How they've come off I don't know. So information on this would be appreciated as well.

    They are plastic sleeves held on by a metal collar that simply pushes on to the bumpstop and the plastic sleeve, I bought new ones when I fitted my coilovers but couldn't use them as I cut my bumpstops down, they are available to but from audi and are VERY cheap to buy(about £5 iirc)but as I couldn't use mine I will give them to whoever wants them if they pay postage :-),
    I will have a look for part numbers in the meantime,I got mine from Stoke Audi,
    Oh while I remember, mine are for the oval shaped bumpstops where as some A3's All mk2 TT's and mk5 golfs (cars with same platform)have round bumpstops,
    look at your rear bumpstops and you'll know what I mean
