    Clunking Noise When Changing Gears

    Hi All,

    Does anyone else have a problem like this? Ive been meaning to get it into the dealers for the steering creak but have recently starting hear quite a loud noise when changing gears at low speed, never noticed before probably because i have the music blarring.

    Anyone else have this problem? Also im getting a ticking noise, when parked up and running, mate said something with the timing belt but at 15000 MILES!!!!!!!

    Apparently, the S3 has injectors that are rather like a diesel's common rail - the ticking noise is the injectors squirting fuel. I had mine remapped a couple of weeks ago and asked the guy who did it what it was. Don't know about the timing belt though, but I would seriously doubt it has to be done @ 15,000

    Try using the clutch !!!

    Seriously though, 1st into 2nd is little clunky, all to do with the quattro me thinks, hence being advised to get out of 1st ASAP, otherwise smooth as silk. As for you ticking, perfectly normal , certainly not the belt.

    Okay, but its not only in first gear, it happens from second to third also, tends to be just when i release the clutch, its like someting is about to fall off the noise it makes

    Doesn't sound normal, get the dealer to check it out.

    my s3 makes the same noise when i change it at lower speeds. But it doesnt make noise when i change the gear softly.
    I think ticking is normal. Its like diesel lol.
