Hi, Today I have noticed that I get a strange dry grinding noise from my car when I release the throttle. It happens worst when the engine is below 2000rpm; when gently applying the throttle so that the engine starts to labour, the noise appears for a split second as soon as you release the throttle. It is most noticeable in 3rd and 4th gear. The sound appears to come from the driver's side (right) of the car. I did originally think that it might be the clutch as I noticed the sound when changing gear. However, leaving the car in 3rd driving at approximately 30-40mph the sound occurs every time I release the throttle. It almost sounds as if the gears haven't got enough oil or something; it's a very dry sound. My car is only 16mths old and has 37700 miles on the clock so it will still be under warranty, but I'm hoping that someone might be able to suggest what the problem could be before I take it into my local Audi stealer.
