    Hi All

    Got another problem with my A3 2.0 TDI DSG.

    Was driving on the M60 at 70 with cruise control on. Felt a vibration from the front somewhere, so i disengaged CC and the vibration went. As soon as I put the accelerator down, I felt the vibration again, through the pedal...now I cant tell if it was a bad road surface or the car...

    Prognosis: dropped it in neutral at that speed to see if it was the bearing...nope as the sound went...recently, I've had the NSF CV gaitor changed and both fron wishbone bushes....to be honest the car hasnt been the same since I got this work done...

    Im also getting some knocking sound at the back somewhere...which I cant pinpoint...any ideas??

    Cheers

    I had something just like this recently. It turned out to be my inner cv joint on the passenger side when I was driving for a short period of time @70/80 it would come but come off the power it would go and driving at slow speeds it wasn't there.

    I took it to a VAG specialist who couldnt find the noise. I get the knocking at slow speeds and the vibration at higher speeds....hmmm what did you pay to have your inner CV joint done?

    Has anyone had wishbone bushes replaced before?

    My total was £250 but that was getting other stuff done to. Would think just the inner cv would be about £180/200
