    Hey,

    Had my S3 serviced recently and was told the suspension top mounts have a small amount of play. When im driving it it feels 'loose' and wondered if anyone can help in shedding some light on how to fix this?
    I was thinking possibly replace the bushes but dont know if this will help?

    Any info would be great!

    Cheers

    Tom

    top mounts are common, about £15 each or less from audi, and is a sraight forward job, replace the bearing's whilst you change the top mounts as well as they are only cheap

    Just had mine done and made a lot of difference to how the car rides.

    Didn't quite follow S3APY's response to this. Translation please.
