Question about 2005 Audi A3
Are there known causes of a rattle that has just started and has got a lot worse? It's at the rear of the car on the driver's side and is definitely not something inside the car (we emptied everything!) and my husband cycled alongside to confirm that it's on the outside. It sounds like metal on metal and something of a decent weight (like two metal plates clanking). We are worried something might fall off if we continue to drive it.
My 2004 A3 3.2 developed a persisitent rattle from the rear. The dealers immediately knew what was wrong and changed both rear shockers without any question under warranty. Fixed!

Hard to say what it is without a visual inspection. Take it to the nearest repair shop as soon as possible.
I don't think its a suspension issue cause especially in an A3 you would see it in the curb height and feel it in the ride.
