Hi
I am a first time poster an have acquired an s3 07 with 47 k full audi history 1 owner

Just wanted other owners experience of a whine In 1sr an 2nd gear under load and over run can hear it just when audio off an heater fan very low

I have changed gearbox oil with genuine gearbox oil from audi dealer

Old oil came out still a bit goldey
No bad for 12 years sposed 2b lifetime fill anyhow but done it to check things out no other probs gear change is smooth

Ta for any answers in advance

Can you please make a short video? I also have a strange sound but only in the first gear and I think it comes from the gearbox.

I have a whine on my 08 (pre fl) S3 too. Kinda just accepted it until I get around to cracking the ‘box open and refurbishing it one day

Check it's not the Transfer box. When they fail, you know about it!

Am I thinking right that if it's only in first and second gear it shouldn't be the transfer box?

Sorry not replied made a vid but sound can't be heard as is so slight over raod an engine noise
I am monitoring it and have noticed its slightly louder when warmed up
It may be just me
I have read this kind of noise could go on 4 years or just pack up
Gear change is silky smooth and noise is no worse
So will keep an eye on it

Whilst I might be wrong, I think this shin modification is for the older Mk 4 Golf or A3 8L series of cars.

I have a whine coming from my S3 8P with DSG. Thinking it might just be normal but not sure. I can hear it every so often and found a video of another car with a similar sound below. The guy in the end says it's the Torque Converter Pump??
What you lot reckon?

That's cool, narrows it down further then to something else like the Torque Converter Pump
