    S4 engine mounting

    What sort of noise would a faulty engine mounting make?

    When test driving the S4 I thought it sounded like the front offside wheel bearing was rumbling excessively. (I also noticed a faint different noise when engaging the clutch at low speeds)

    I guess tyre noise will be worse with 18" tyres over 17 but there was certainly more noise from the front offside which can't be right?

    I mentioned this to the salesman and he called a mechanic over who suggested it could be the engine mounting. He said it was a common fault on S4?
    But from previous experiance these guys talk a load of s*&t.

    It hasn't had its 100point check yet so they will look into it then.

    I love you to resolve this as I have and I know a few others who have the " front offside wheel bearing... rumbling excessively".

    Everytime mines in I ask and am always told its not a problem as is perfectly normal. Please push them on this. If an engine mount solves it then you'll make lots of people happy!!

    indeed; but you do have to accept that the S4 is quite noisy. Wheel bearing can be found be finding a clear road, and at about 40,cornering left, then right (swerving). If the noise gets more, then it could be the bearing. If it makes not difference, welcome to S4 ownership!..
    I have driven about 4 different s4's, some brand new demos, and 'they are all a bit like that' imo !.

    True enough.... and I think you are right...
    One of the minor downsides is that the car is quite harsh on those days when we are feeling a bit... ahem... fragile..!

    I just take my A4 when I feel like that...
