    Clunk on reverse!! What is it??

    Cars really good but noticed after having been driving and stop to select reverse, (got DSG) then after moving back about 2 feet I hear a clunk, every time! Only once and seems to come from the front to middle-ish part of the car underneath. Never happens going forward, only when first going backwards. Is this normal with DSG?? or a problem starting to show??
    thanks

    I had the same problem once. Turned out it was my neighbours cat.

    Second time it happened it turned out to be their dog.

    I heard the same noise the other week but didn't stop to see what happened.

    Oi! You have no proof it was me that killed their little boy. Somebody else might have done it.

    No bicyclists pressed up against your rear window, or anything???

    My DSG doesn't do it... dass all I can tell ya.

    Could be brakes, could be a few things, would probably need to go an alift to check some usual suspects though...

    Could be a brake pad in caliper tbh as yours are 345mm iirc & I have the same setup & had similar issues until I put some 3M padding in the pad caliper location which stopped the clonking, needs the wheels of & a nose in the calipers & test for movemnet in pads.

    Hiya, thanks for that. As NHN asked, were they done under warranty??? And did you mean it can also do it going forwards too??? Is this a fault that can get progressively worse??
    thanks

    I have the same clunking noise problem also when reversing. Notably, the clunk only occurs when applying the accelerator in reverse. If allowing my S3 to coast in reverse the clunk does not occur. As others have said, it may be a DSG type niggle as I have had this behaviour since 8 miles on the car....
    You can take the boy out of Essex but not Essex out of the boy...

    Hi yeah it'll be covered under warranty providing it's in the warranty period ie less than 3 years old and under 60,000 miles with a dsg oil change done at 40,000 that's the important one I'm at my local vw dealer in the south west we had a stage not long ago where we were stacked out the door with them on all dsg models
