Just a quick query really! I've had my 06 140 2.0TDI S-Line for nearly 6 months and I have noticed two random things about it that I wondered if you guys could clear up for me.
The first is that on the drivers side of the vehicle in the foglamp grille area there is a backing plate (sort of a scoop shape) that stops anything from flying through into the engine bay. On the passenger side this appears to be missing. I pointed out when I collected the car that I've not seen any other A4's with this backing piece missing but my local dealer is adamant there should not be one on my car and that there is no part listed on their computer for my car.
When I queried it, by pointing to other identical cars on their forecourt they said it must be specific to my car/run/model. This seems a little odd to me...
Secondly, I have noticed when the car is warm the steering seems to make a groaning noise as you head for full lock. I heard a rhumor that this was a known fault on A4's and was a warranty issue?
The car is under Audi extended warranty until Nov this year, so I would like to try and get it sorted if possible.
Thanks for any help you can offer
