Question about Audi A3

Open Question

My 2004 audi A3 2.0 Ambition has a rattling noise which sounds like it's coming from either the right front wheel or it's underneath the car. Quite an embarassing noise, a loud "metal" noise.

Secondhand Audi A3, 2.0 Ambition, 185 000km, full service history and accident free

SOURCE: noise while turning when accelerating

Probably a, or both front CV (constantly variable) joints in the front half-shafts (the driveshafts that run from your transmission to both your front wheels) are going bad. Not a too uncommon problem. They run about 150-160$ Canadian dollars a piece for remanufactured front shafts (from NAPA Auto Parts). Not too sure about labour cost, could be a few hundred dollars.

My 04 avalanche makes a clinking noise In front underneath when I hit a bump?


dose it speed up and down when you drivings, it could be you have caught the splash guard onto the brake disc and its catching, if its the wheel baring you need to jack up the side with the wheel still on and turn wheel round check for the sound if now sound, grab wheel at 9 to 3 and shack the wheel feeling for movement should be just a tiny bit with no sound. then do the same at 12 and six if there is a lot of movement the bearing will need replacing same if it makes a clunking sound.

'04 Altima - rattle under car


yea, flimsy plastic under front end, wheel wells, etc., could also be @ brake calipers, they have a flimsy metal clip that creates noise, all these will give you noise, just reinforce the plastic with screws,it works, some silcone will quiet the brake noise, check you CVjoints ,boots, make sure the rubber bellows are still attached, no cuts or splits with grease coming out, that would be a grinding noise. check your BELTS, worn or stretched needing replaced or tightened. that should do it.

Awful rattling noise when reversing and turning


you are right about the bearing going to bits, it is called a CV joint. it allows the driveshafts to the front wheels to flex as you turn left or right and one is coming apart if one is going bad the other side will too soon, get them both replaced. If you don't, when it breaks completely it will cause MUCH more damage

um, clunking brakes when braking after you repaired them? EMERGENCY PROCEDURE REQUIRED Have the car towed to a reputable shop. Your brake pads or calipers or wheel are coming apart. they could fail while driving. This is likely very serious. Hopefully, it is just the anti rattle clips not holding the pads in place but do not chance it. Also, consider a mobile mechanic

Grinding/Low Whining noise when turning


sounds like the power sterring pump check valve is failing because it only when you turn, try to turn the wheels standing still to verify the noise, if noise present, replace the ps pump.

Front End Noise, Chev Cavalier


It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.
