    Its mainly apparent when the engines cold but can still here it when its warmed up. Sat inside the car theres always an odd noise as the engine accelerates and then changes gear its like a rubbing/scrapping kind of noise. Anyone else had this?

    Yes, it gets louder but stops when I put the clutch down.

    Took it to an independent audi specialist today and was told it was the cambelt casing was a bit loose and touching the pully. I was told this would be about £195 to fix!! Is there any way I can do this myself?

    Can anyone help with this? Can I even run the car with the covers removed?

    time belt? if it is then it's not an easy job for 195 I would give it to a mechanic to do the work. it could be the fanbelt/alternatorbelt the visible one which also sits on the driver side. you can check this yourself. if it has lots of cracks ect. thats a lot eaiser I would say 50 pounds all in.

    If it stops completely when you put the clutch down then how could it be the cambelt? Doesnt make sense to me but then I'm no mechanic :)

    I would take it to another independent Audi specialist and get a second opinion, £195 is a lot to spend if that's not whats causing it.

    Just in case it is the cambelt I would try and not drive much until it's sorted.
