First off, Hi to everyone! Just joined the forum and finding my way around.
Bought my first Audi this week - a 2006 A4 Avant Quattro 2.0TDi S-Line. Chuffed to bits with it, and the way it's been spec'd, but....
No. 1 - When I brake, particularly noticeable below 25mph, there's a knock that sounds like it's coming from the OSF wheel area. A couple of seconds after I release the brake (while still freewheeling), there's another knock. Same happens when I come to a halt - a knock as I brake, then just as I start to take up acceleration, another knock. This doesn't seem to affect the braking.
No. 2 - When I'm up to about 60mph and I use the brake, there is a judder through the steering wheel and through the brake pedal. Again, this doesn't seem to affect the braking, but does make my arms / right foot vibrate!
The discs / pads were replaced under a recall approx 6k miles ago - apparently after reports of the same symptoms.
No. 3 - Plasticky sounding creak / rattle from the boot area - AAARRRGGHH!!! Just annoying more than anything. Such a rock solid car, but ONE annoying creak / rattle. Anyone any idea what it could be, or heard of a common issue?
Appreciate any help you folks can offer
