Wel if you have removed the joint out of the hub take the bolt you removed screw it back into the joint all the way until it stops make it hard. take heavy hammer and hit the bottom edge of the joint will take good force to knock the joint past the cir clip that holds it in place. then u should be ok. any question return on this thread

Knocking noise on right back wheel of audi


First the obvious, are the lug bolts all tight? If so then I'd look for a loose joint on the rear tie rod or a worn outer joint bushing on the upper control arm. If noise occurs while rolling slowly then it might be a worn CV joint in the drive axle.

My Audi 03 A4 shutters on take off like a clutch engaging and dis engaging but it's auto...


If you have C.V drive joints worn this maybe why there's a shutter when taking off,did you get them checked out recently,also along with worn CV drives joints a bush on the wish bone arms on the inside near the chassis can be wearing out,so the car wheels move forward a few inches before the chassis and car do.Also if its an auto,your transmission oil may need changing,its tick and clogging the sive,filter.Or thick in cold weather before heat up.

I have a A4 2000 18 S6. Recently i experience a noise with my steering wheel power. When I top up my hydraulic oil i notice that the oil is a white foamy substance? The noise goes away but it comes back...


Hi Nicoyou have air in the hydraulic system, maybe one of the steering rod seals may be war and letting in air, sometimes if you have a good seal on the wrack gaiters you will not notice a leak, try checking all connections and also just squeeze the gaiters on the wrack to see if they might be filled with fluid but this is your problem, air in the steering system...hope that helps

Hi, I just did my MOT and servicing, my car failed the MOT because the CV gaiter split. Had it replaced and my car passed the MOT.. But then when I drove it back home, I smell burning rubber coming from my...


Not likely unless the CV gaiter (we call it a boot on this side of the pond) is really rubbing hard against something or is in contact with part of the exhaust system. When you had the gaiter replaced could they have left bits of the old one on the engine block or exhaust system. I'd look elsewhere for the cause of the burning smell.
