    Hi all,

    Just recently I've noticed a strange vibration coming from the back wheel (it seems) when i put the car on full right hand lock and gently pull away.
    Its hard to explain in words the sound but its not like a bang...bang...bang, its more of a fast Drrrrrrrr!! (If you can understand that then well done!)
    Does this sound like a haldex problem. I have taken out a full AA warranty on the car so i can get the car down to the stealers to let them have a look.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I think so, from what I remember people who had this problem also had a problem when reversing on full lock, it would stop them reversing in worst case senario

    Usually if it's the Haldex you should get a warning light and if it is locked in 4wd you get more of a loud thump from the back on both locks

    Thanks for the advice guys,
    I've never noticed it while reversing, just on full right hand lock pulling away. Theres no lights on either.
    I'll have to get down to Audi and see what they reckon.

    I'll keep you posted....
