    Hi folks, Im taking my car back to my dealers again tomorrow regarding rattling windows and also the "knocking noise" from the rear suspension.

    They advised me that they are not aware of any problems and its already been in 3 times !

    could you please give me your experiences of any of these problems so I can print this off and show them.

    Many thanks

    Bloody garages...
    Can you not ask to take a mechanic for a drive ?
    That's what I did about my rattle.
    They can hardly deny it happens when it's demonstrated to them in your presence.

    I had a rattling window (near side) and rear dampers which mad a knocking noise. Both problems were fixed by my Audi dealer, as is to be expected.

    pm me if you need my full name, adress, and the service manager of my dealer.

    Not aware? I don't see how when there was an Audi response to the knocking rear suspensions struts... mine were replaced FOC.

    I went in with the car after three months saying about the knocking, they looked but couldn't find a fault. I thought it was just me, but a couple of weeks later they rang me up saying Audi had identified a possible fault and the rear suspension was to be replaced.

    They never did fix the sodding rattle on the passenger door though - it's been in several times for it, been greased, had new rubber strips - nothing stops it. I'm forced to listen to my iPod at exceptionally high volumes now... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Thanks steveb - any and all help gratefully received!

    I did find this online seller for gummi-pflege mind you:

    http://www.knightsbrooke.co.uk/interior-and-exterior.htm

    If this is the carcinogenic rattle cure, I'll risk it and cure the rattle! The link through to payPal doesn't seem to work, but Worldpay does...

    Make sure to spray the "groove" in the seal along the top of the door...
