    What is that knocking sound??!!!!

    Hi Coyle, Yeah was pretty bad you could tell from a fair distance :P Mine tended to make the noise when there was lateral movement on the suspension e.g. going over a speed bump with one set of wheels left or right side only. Hope you get it sorted mate!

    It's not dangerous unless you are spanking the car around. The £1500 was for labour as well apparently to replace it requires dropping the subframe and realigning it which is where the time is.

    What does this dash light mean?

    I found on my 96 A3 that moving the steering column up and down then locking it back in place would resolve the issue for about 4-5 months... not a permanent solution but should you find yourself in trouble might be worth a go!

    S3 in the Snow & Snowboards

    It's not part time AWD in that the rear wheels always have around 5 - 10% power going to them in normal motorway conditions to reduce temperature and wear on the components, so they are being driven you just dont notice it. The Haldex, as I understand it works on a rotational difference so...
