    Firstly, happy new year to you all.

    Secondly, i'm trying to find an exploded view of the complete rear suspension for an '01 S3, including axel and differential diagrams. I've checked out the diagrams on Vagcat.com but there's no 1 diagram with all parts on it?

    Any help is appreciated lads, i need to solve my knocking/thumping felt coming from the back on bad roads.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, i had the same with my rear and it turned out to be a shot shock absorber. I jacked the car up and used a bar to move the wheel and joints to look for any play.

    Could be a number of things:icon_thumright:

    P.S. Happy New Year
