Hi all great forum, My car is under extended warranty under audis approved scheme, car is 3.8 yrs old. I booked my 2009 S3 into my local Audi dealer to investigate a grinding noise when turning under low speed. i took the engineer out and he heard the noise clearly and we dropped the car back. I then get a call from the service manager, who badly explained to me that they think its the gearbox but we can't investigate further under an extended warranty unless you are prepared to pay £850 to strip the gearbox. If it is a problem with the gearbox then Audi uk will cover the cost of this. I also get vibrations through the clutch pedal and today the clutch stuck halfway down but came up agin when I depressed the pedal. The noise is getting worse and I only have 1 month left before the extended warranty runs out. I'm scared to keep the car in case it is the gearbox, any ideas or help on what steps to take would be appreciated.
