Loud idling may be higher rpm's and unresponsive brakes point to a vacuum leak in the power booster hose that will run very clos to the reservoir.

SOURCE: I have 2001 Audi tt

common problem which audi uk dont want to recognise but ironically audi usa did after immense pressure from the owners club.mine does the same and i live with it as the brakes work ok and i can throw the car into the tightest of corners at speed and the car does not roll,yaw left or right ans stays where it should.The fault is inherent with the year can have your own dash pod recallibrated at a cost of around £250 by a british company but there is no real solution or gaurantee

SOURCE: Audi A6 Quattro wagon loud squeaking when

it means there is a problem on the wheels.
Better check the brakes and wheel bearing.
You could have free check up in any underchasis & brakes shop. They would even clean your brakes and make some estimate for the parts and services they would provide.
Hoe that solves your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!

hi, i'm pretty sure that you do have a combo brake/clutch system on the same reservoir. sounds like the brake fluid is low, when you take turns and the brake light goes on, that usually means low fluid sloshing away from internal reservoir sensor. audi and vw take DOT 4 brake fluid only, not DOT 3. You should fill to max level on the brake reservoir(located in front of the drivers seat/steering wheel in the engine compartment) and yes, take it to a professional shop, there maybe other problems in the brake/clutch system in need of inspection. hope i could help.

Fluid indicator light is on - different than washer fluid. What's low? It's not oil.

Check with your car's user manual, it could be anything from brake fluid to transmission fluid or engine coolant. If you don't have user's manual simply check the fluid level on mentioned items.
