    Hello everyone!
    Got a 2005 A3 2.0 TDI SLine Quattro..I have a slight knock on the front wheels at low speed when turning left or right. Almost like a stick (which there isn't!) is running round the back of the wheel spoke! Only a couple of seconds but it's there!
    I know for sure one bearing has been replaced not sure about the other.
    Never had Audi before so I'm a bit dumb!

    Thanks!

    Mine sounded like this, put up with it for a while and then it starting making the noise all the time when driving. Turned out it was one of the wheel bearings.

    Jack the car up and give both front wheels a wiggle, if one of them moves and all the wheel bolts are tight, its probably the bearing on that side.

    Sounds like it could be your steering Rack or a loose sub-frame or even a worn ball joint?

    I had a knock in the steering when going past center lock in either direction, has the wishbone/console bushes replaced and that sorted it out.
