    Oh Great - Back to the Dealers!

    4weeks of ownership and the car has to be taken back to the dealership

    Creaking steering column when turning left

    and

    Rattling Passenger Door

    so much for Audi Build quailty, i expect a 5k car to rattle NOT a 27K (thats what the previous owner paid for it) car!

    I know the steering column is a common problem

    i think i might wait until the service is due so i can get it all done, too much hassle!

    You may find that it is actually the glovebox lid which is rattling, rather than the passenger door.

    I had this with mine. It is the curved lid stay at the lower lefthand side of the glovebox lid creaking against its guides. Just squirt some WD40 on it !

    I wouldn't wait for the service - the creaking gets incredibly frutstrating and they never carry stock - mine took 5 weeks to get, so you will probably end up with extra trips anyway. The replacement rack completely cured it though.
