both of mine use to make a terrible noise, going up or down the noise was rather annoying. I got my machanic to service my car and he sprayed some lube down there, after a week few the noise disappeared
in that case thats different to the issue I had. When I came off the throttle it sounded like an exhaust clamp was loose and I had a kind of metal on metal sound. Turns out my propshaft bearing was knackered.
Unfortunately I dont have a multimeter, but I may have a friend who does, so Ill go down that route first. thanks for your input Cav1, very helpful.
NHN - having looked at that link, from the audi option it only states S3 S4 S6 and S8 but no S5, is the S4 battery the same then?
Thanks for your prompt reply NHN. Are the batteries genuinely good then, so a recharge should solve my issue?
Other than Ebay, where can I get one of these charges from (I’m from London)?
Also, I had a quick look under the bonnet yesterday but couldn’t see the battery, where about is it?
I've got an issue with my car, now I've never had this issue before so just wanted some advice before I go to the dealership.
I haven’t drove my car for about 2 weeks and yesterday when I started it all was good. Then I got to the petrol garage to get some petrol. When i got back...
Have any of you had to replace this? if so, how much did it cost you and at what mileage (mine has done 76k)
When I'm driving it sounds like I have an exhaust clamp loose and the noise is horrible. Anyway my mechanic is fixing this on Wednesday but wanted to know what others have done...
I have an 08 S5 v8 and when I reverse on full lock and get a similar judder, only does it in reverse really and when I asked my mechanic (he worked for audi for years) he also said most A5's do this??
Anyone else had similar issues?
apparently its my propshaft bearings that are causing the noise. On the plus side I've had a full service and the car is running so much better now and even a little more responsive.
Waiting for a quote on the shaft so I hope it isnt too much. going to get the current one refurb
