    Hello all,

    I own a 2001 S3.

    Noticed yesterday and today (as its really wet) that when im going around a corner at say 15-20mph, one of my front wheels starts to slip? Almost like its wheel spinning very slowly and my car might judder a bit.

    Any one had this problem before?

    Please don't tell me my car is fubar'd!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    What do you mean by slip? Is it just a noise or is the whole front of the car going wide in the turn? To be honest the roads are so **** around here I'm not sure i'd worry too much.

    Haven't had time to get this issue looked at but guna throw some new rubber at the problem and just check the alignment as my missus has been driving it the past 2 months, and we know how good they are with curbs. Just going to see if it makes a difference, if not i will get the Haldex controller looked at!

    Cheers

    For the help people!

    Just in case any of you were curious, turns out the alignment was completely out by a mile!

    So put some new rubber on and had everything put right and is now driving round corners again!

    I will be forwarding the bill onto the missus for this one!

    Speak soon people!
