    DSG Rattles at Idle

    As the title says my 3.2 has a nice rattle at idel which goes once in gear. Are there any known or common fauts before I toddle off to the dealers before my warranty runs out?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hi mate,

    Dont know to link threads but if you look at my - S3 Fly Wheel Problems from two days ago...

    "I have been searching for some time on the site for information on a problem with my 2007 S3; in that over the last few months I have been plagued by a metallic knocking noise from the engine between 2k -4k revs, underload. Not unlike the engine noise of the old Talbot Sunbeam - i.e. crap."

    Mine is a manual (of course), but could be the same.

    Just clearly state to them that the Rattle is not normal and so therefore is a warrenty issue!! Dont take any crap from em!! To be honest a rattle would more than likely be a mechanical problem and will doubt very much if VAGCOM picks up anything!! so they could just be trying a fast one!!

    My dealer tried that on with me. I told them I wasn't going to pick the car back up until it was sorted F.O.C. They sorted it....


    I always find you have the upper hand when you get a courtesy car off them

    Is the rattle actually from the gearbox itself or could it be from the gear change linkage. I had a slight rattle from the centre lever which the dealer cured whilst it was in for serive by re-greasing all the linkage.
