I have an A3 2.0 TDI who has developed strange noises over a period of 4 months. The noises are getting louder. At the beginning I thought it came from a rear suspension as it is produced when I turn right.
I have read all there is to read about CV joints, boots and driveshaft and I am still not convinced. The noise seems to come from the front every time I turn right and accelerate. If I turn right and do not accelerate, then , nothing. Occasionally If I turn left I can hear a noise. The sound is quite bassy, more a clonk than a click if you see what i mean.
I have taken both front wheels and looked at the CV boots, no leaks apparent.
My car has only 42000 miles on the clock which is mainly city.
I phoned the Audi dealer who wants Ł99 + VAT just to do a diagnostict when I have actually just done the service in November 09 which cost Ł450 just to change oil and brake pad. I would have thought they would have noticed something then, especially when I mentioned the noise to them. But they said, they didn't get a chance to drive it to find out.
If it was a CV boot then, they would have noticed.
