    Hi guys,

    Right i've posted up about this before but its really getting to me now...So...I have a judder: only happens when car is warm, only happens when stationary, dipping clutch doesnt cure it, dipping clutch and engaging any gear doesnt cure it but if i get a biting point the juddering stops, its worse when car is sitting on a hill...Car sounds fine and rev needle doesnt move when juddering...

    Ive been told its DMF but i dont wanna go ahead and get it changed when it not.

    The car is under warranty and covers DMF and clutch but it means i'd have to lose car to have any work carried out and i'd have to be sure on fault before i let it be worked on as i can not aford to lose car for too long.

    Any help apperciated

    :)

    get it checked out by audi before the warranty runs out they usually give courtesy cars if you request them so you wouldnt be without a car

    It's not an Audi warranty it's a independent company

    Chances are it's the injector wiring loom.

    Do a search on this forum - dozens of threads on the subject.
