Hi guys, this is my first post on the site, been a lurker for a long time.
I have a 2008 plate Audi A3 2.0 TDi Quattro S-line, the 170 version. I have noticed recently that when I'm mainly in 5/6 gear and I accelerate (starting about 2.2k revs) I get a very obvious and quite loud vibration. It disappears higher up the rev range, probably towards 3k.
I've done a fair bit of research and I believe this is very often attributed to the quattro prop shaft "doughnut" bearings/damper, the rear one specifically in most cases. I've also read that Audi often advice customer they have to replace the whole prop shaft.
Basically to help me quickly sort the problem I was hoping someone would know the code for the front and rear bearings for my car? I've found codes for older plates and for the 140 varieties but want to ensure I buy the right part obviously!
Any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
