    Hello all ,

    My 1st post on the forum. as im a newbie so hello to you all

    Just purchased an Audi A4 b5 1.9tdi. its the 1st audi i have owned ( and rw drive car).

    Made up with the car but i have concerns.

    The problem i have is quite hard to explain in txt , easier to feel the issue from the driving seat.

    To me the car feels like 1st and 2nd gear are loose , the clutch bites well and it has no problems engaging gear, the car pulls like a train when under load but at short speeds the car seems to rock / knock when clutch peddle is pressed ( mainly from a stop start or low speed).

    any ideas or advice would be much appreciated?

    probably tghe dual mass flywheel if its juddering. Your car is fwd or awd (quattro). They never made the a4 rearwheel drive.

    Thanks ian , im no expert with cars . Must be front wheel then , To be honest im getting used to the drive of the car now , i think it may have been the way i was riding the clutch. Not used to diesels ( always owned petrols), the power and gears drive totally different to that of a petrol car ( in my opinion.)

    done 65 mile and the diesel's hardly moved lol. futures bright . DIESEL all the way for me!!!!
