Creak from drivers footwell on the S3
I got a funny one on my 2002 S3. I had a knocking coming from the passenger footwell so I took it into my Audi specialist. They replaced the droplink and both the arb bushes and charged me £140.
It's a bit arkward but now I have a different noise in the same area. The garage have agreed to give me an hours free investigation, but I only ge the noise now after driving the car, maybe at speed. I drove to work this morning 4/5 miles and there was nothing. Yesteday I drove about 20 miles to work after which I can hear a nasty creaking. It happens when the car pulls away and you can hear it at low speeds (under 20mph)
The garage say their is no movement in the suspension and obviously it's hard for them to hear this noise without first driving it for 30 minutes. Once the noise starts you can really hear it over speed bumps and pulling away and stopping.
What could this be? could it be an engine mount or is this one of the suspension components?
