Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet
If I am parked or drive really slowly (i.e. when parking) and I turn the steering wheel fast it makes a terrible loud noise. Is this normal? Maybe the system Audi uses in the steerings has technology that shouldn't be turned fast while car is not speeding...?
My car is Multitronic 1.8T and when I boost it from stop position it may take a few miliseconds to go. Also, I have to step on it to make sure it goes as it should...
Is the above normal? My 1.8T Cabrio has now 80000 miles.
Sounds like the high effort sensor in the rack is causing high feed back pressure, making the steering pump belt squeal. Try adding some Lucas Automatic Transmission Conditioner to the steering fluid reservoir .

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

SOURCE: TURBO NOT BOOSTING
Hello, I am a Saab technician from upstate new york. It sounds to me that the turbo wastegate rod may be seized to the turbo control valve. The easiest way to try to fix this is to spray penetrating oil on the turbo valve/ wastegate rod and work it back and forth with a pry bar. Many times u can also heat this up with a torch and pray. If those two things don't work than the turbo valve itself is seized into the guide hole machined into the turbo. good luck.

Testimonial: "This souds about right, thanks"
lenmercredi2, Sounds to me like the starter, the clicking sound you hear is the shaft on the starter popping out, but the shaft is not spinning. The shaft pops out and spins the flywheel to start the car, but sounds like its not working. You more than likely need a new starter, hope this helps :)
