    The bush has seized mate. This means no flex at all when hitting bumps and all this stress is then passed to the tie bar which snaps.

    Googled and it seems like a very common issue, bloody dangerous if it was at a higher speed! Is it the same issue on the s3? Im hopeing its the revised rose joint that i can do without the press but waiting for my brother now so he can give me his 2p of wisdom.

    Yes mate, same on the S3 but I've seen it on TTs more for some reason. I want to change mine over at some point. Maybe when I do my trailing arm bushes.

    i was just popping in to mention you dont need to get a rose joint because they offer rubber bushes for it now.

    check dre_s3's thread he bought a kit to do it. part numbers will be in there.

    alternatively you could contact powerflex or superpro and get them to make you some, because they dont currently make them. you could be a right trend setter

    My 99' S3 had the rear tie arm recall soon after I purchased, not sure what was changed, but something was? Anyways, I took one side off to see how difficult it could be, pretty sure mine had rubber bushes top and bottom, not rose joints?

    i had no idea it was a recall, thats a really good shout actually, i might enquire at Audi see what they say. free rebush :cheers:
    yeh basically audi now give out bushes rather than rose joints, which would be alot better in terms of longetivity. Dre bought some recently i think thats what he got.

    It was the pas side rear tie arm that connects to the bottom of the hub! If that makes sense!

    Edit* and if you mean what non oem tie arm, im not sure, just know that it looks like stainless steel, not painted or anything. Ill take pics when its off later!

    It really depends on if your car has 'had' the recall, or if it falls in the recall chassis numbers also?

    Mine was running 19" rims and a remap for the recall, but suspension was standard. I didn't know much about Audi's, nevermind S3's at the time, so not sure what they fixed/replaced?
