    Hello All

    I've had a knocking coming from the back of the car. It's only when going over bumps in the road.
    Had look under my A3 and found this "plastic guard" i guess with split in it.

    Is there beter name other than a Plastic guard (what it basically is) or part number?
    Bit hard to describe to TPS tomorrow.

    described as lower stoneguard for the coil spring only fitted on 2007 onwards.bought one from tps a few weeks ago was about £6 and a few £ for the fixings it took ages for the parts man to find it ended up sending an email with a picture on it.

    Mine rattled like hell going over speed bumps. Its the crappy plastic fixings that allow the guard to rattle.

    Replacing them probably isn't going to solve the problem. Just take them off as they serve very little purpose!
