    Hi all,

    Just looking for some advise really, i hav a 2002 S3 and just lately noticed a strange grinding noise which i thought was coming from the clutch it happens when i come fully off the clutch and first put my foot down it makes a very short grinding noise, i asked my mechanic friend about it and he said its nothing to do with the clutch or the gear box and is more likely to be somthing vibrating,:shrug: can anyone advise me where so start looking??

    many thanks mark
