    2015 allroad rattle until driven a few miles.

    My A7 spent a week at Audi and they couldn’t find anything wrong with it. There is a rattle when cold from the underside of the car but apparently they can’t place it. It can’t be run through the gears when it’s on a ramp because of of the Quattro system apparently. I just have to suck it and...

    S-tronic jerk after coming to a stop 272 3.0 Quattro

    Well…. See my later post. I now have a hell of a rattle from the gearbox area when cold. It’s been diagnosed as a failing dual mass flywheel. It’s in Audi at the minute, I’ll find out on Monday. The jerk would tie in with the flywheel being on its way out.

    S tronic flywheel rattle noise jingling

    Hi all, I have a 2015 A7 Quattro 272bhp with a 7 spd s-tronic gearbox. I have a rattle from underneath the car when cold. It also rattles slightly when warm but not as much. Is the dual mass flywheel a weak point? Should I replace anything else when I’m in there? Here’s a link to the sound.

    2015 allroad rattle until driven a few miles.

    I’m waiting on confirmation that mine is indeed the flywheel, I’ll find out Thursday. £1000 if it is, my rattle seems to be from the low n/s of the car. Same as you I heard it when the front passenger window was down.

    Hi all (again)

    I’ve come back to the Audi club having ventured off to a variety of other makes. I’ve finally got the car I’ve really wanted an A7 Quattro 272 (would have preferred a bitdi but hey ho). I have to say I am absolutely delighted with the A7, it really is a fantastic car to drive

    S-tronic jerk after coming to a stop 272 3.0 Quattro

    Hi all, as in the header I have a 2015 272 3.0 Quattro with a 7 speed s-tronic box. It has 48k on it now and the gearbox was serviced by Audi at 39k (by previous owner). When I come to a stop I get a jerk/jolt/nudge forward. It only happens in ‘D’ never in manual or ‘S’ it’s really starting to...

    Need new grilles (pigeon catastrophe..)

    Hi, had a collision with 4 yes 4 pigeons on the motorway doing about 80mph, they trashed the front lower grille and the n/s spot-light grille. My car is an 04 sport avant with the GmbH front spoiler. Are all the grilles the same? I noticed a few on eBay which look like what I need but they...

    Heater control panel face swop?

    Yes running at 90c (warms up a lot quicker from thermo replaced), mine goes down to 16 then lo, the unit I got goes to 18 then low, I'll get the part no when I get home. I got it for £30 and seems to have cured the problem :) all I need to do now is swop over the face (altho the one I got is...

    Heater control panel face swop?

    I tried the heater control unit from a B7 model and noticed the wiring difference, my cabin air temp won't stay at a steady warm temp. From a cold start this is what happens.... Heater set at 22c in a few minutes of driving I get warm air when the engine temp is indicating roughly 50c the heater...

    Heater control panel face swop?

    Hi all, I have had issues with my heater and traced it to the control panel, (it won't maintain a steady temp) my facia is pristine and most 2nd hand ones are a tad rough looking. Does anyone know if you can swop over the face plate? Bba reman will fix mine but at £125 odd quid it's a bit dear.

    Drivers door adjustment.

    Yes I used the socket version, no pic I'm afraid... I put the socket in lengthways with the btm of the socket against the hinge and the top against the door. It kinda fits because if you do it wrong it pops out. Didn't need that much pressure either against the door to get it lifted. Ill take a...

    How much do you reckon a manual 6 SPD gearbox would cost?

    Turns out its my under tray is smashed, snow must have compacted round the gear shift linkages. The whole under tray is smashed from the gearbox to the back of the car ffs!! But at least cheaper than a gear bag
