    As above really. When driving over rough ground, coming off speed bumps I heard a loud rattle only thing I can think of is a broken spring.

    Seen a few topics on here the range from parcel shelf sun visor to all sorts.

    What's best whipping off the wheel and having a look?

    2.0 tdi 140 2007

    Also would vagcom or vcds tell me if my timing is out, had the belt and pump done when I bought the car and every now and then in stutters when accelerating and sometimes hunts.

    Any help appreciated!

    Cheers

    I had the same issue , and thought the same as you . Car was booked in at Audi that week so I mentioned it to them . Turned out to be a stone nestling in a gap on the base of the suspension.

    Had a look this morning and all it is (I think), is the plastic protector in front of the wheel like a mud guard is loose.

    Wait for a dry day to sort it out.

    Cheers for the reply

    hi mate, take everything out the boot including the spare tyre jack etc, and have a short drive over speed bumps etc to see if its still there.

    Turns out for me my spare wheel was not fixed down properly!
