    AUDI A3 TDI SPORTBACK
  1. q7 steering.... its not normal?

    this bit is still here but the rubbing has gone..............going get it checked out sometime this week............................If i switch the engine off i dont get no rubbing sound.........it is not very loud....very annoying. if engines running i get someone to rock the steering,i can feel it through the front wheels. what i mean is,i got my daughter to rock the wheel side to side and i had my hand gripping the front wheel,i can feel like there is play in the wheel? Its like the shaft has play in it....both sides is the same..........car drives ok,no problems. All i have had done is the alignment which is all within spec. But i never noticed these 2 issues until today,they could have been there all along. :mad:
  2. I can hear rubbing when car is standing still (engine running) if i turn the wheel left or right,it only does it if i turn the steering a little. Lets say ive got both hands on the wheel at '9 o'clock and 3 o'clock and i turn the wheel so it go's from 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock.........or vice versa 12 o'clock to 3 o'clock sound like rubber that is rubbing somewhere,its not inside the car (i thort back of steering was rubbing around all the plastic that go's around indicator stalks,ignition) If i switch the engine off i dont get no rubbing sound.........it is not very loud....very annoying. if engines running i get someone to rock the steering,i can feel it through the front wheels. what i mean is,i got my daughter to rock the wheel side to side and i had my hand gripping the front wheel,i can feel like there is play in the wheel? Its like the shaft has play in it....both sides is the same..........car drives ok,no problems. All i have had done is the alignment which is all within spec. But i never noticed these 2 issues until today,they could have been there all along. :mad:

  6. Torque settings A3 (8P) 2006

    just to update,all the mechanic ive spoken to...say we use a normal torque wrench....some say we dont torque the hubs tighten them and thats it........that comes from audi/vw specialist,he says weve never had a problem or had anyone come back with issues or complaints.Would you guys recommend torque the hubs or not?

  8. Torque settings A3 (8P) 2006

    I totally agree!
  9. Torque settings A3 (8P) 2006

    I have been told by a local AUdi (main dealer) they all differ but for my A3 it 200 nm and then tighten a further 180 deg......ok but why another 180 degrees why not set the torque wrech a little higher? Also will i need new hub bolt? i was planning on using the same ones (im doing both rear bearings) but adding some thread lock to the bolts,are they the stretch type.?....is it a must to replace?
  10. Im after the torque settings for the A3 tdi sportback,its for the rear hub bearings im about to replace. Ive ordered aftermarket ones as they were a way lot cheaper,audi say all a3's have different settings and cant/wont tell me. Have you guys any ideas? chassis starts with wauzzz 8P94................ 2.0 TDI SPORTBACK WITH 30MM REAR HUB BEARING.
  11. wich wax?

    ok...i have a shiny Audi A3 sportback.....polished regular at least once a month using autoglym resin,extra gloss protection,even used colour magic (turtle wax) Ive been told to use collinite 476s as its better than meguiars#16 and so on......then ive read the 476 is for dark coloured cars...yes now im confused! What i want is a good decent wax that will last a while and protect the body, the 476 and meg #16 is under £15.00 what else is there out ther that lasts (at least 2-3 months,good for DOLPHIN METTALIC GREY CAR ? and something under £15.00 ?
