    2004 a6 Allroad front rattle

    There is annoying rattle coming from the front of my car, on driving on uneven surfaces there's as stated a loose rattle coming from the front of the car.it doesn't seem to be from the steering rack as it does not transmit up through the wheel. It seems to be like there's no bushes in the anti roll bar from inside but they are fine.
    do the suspension top mounts give problems ?

    i have already replaced both bottom arms.
    any help would be welcomed

    Daft question, but have you checked the undertray?

    I had a very loud and worrying rattle coming through on rough surfaces, which turned out to be the undertray having come loose...

    Most likely top front suspension arm, jack the car up and pull hard on the wheel and look for movement in the balljoints...
