Noise from (A3 1.4 TFSI 2015)


Recommended Posts

Hello Peter,

Could you give us a bit more detail, e.g. noise changes under acceleration, deceleration, different in different gears, and any change on cornering, and if so, left or right? 

Also have you removed the wheels and thoroughly examined the tyres for bulges and flat spots? Are tyres matched on the same axle, and of similar tread depths? 

Kind regards,

Gareth.

Hello Magnet, the sound comes as I increase speed , doesn't seem to be coming from the engine, could it be from gearbox, I'm not sure, I've looked at the wheels and they seem all ok, I'm at a loss to know what it is!! Sorry if my information is rather vague, its very difficult to explain the sound . Peter.

Thanks Peter,

Don’t worry about being able to describe the noise, but can you let us have answers to the questions in my post.

’I’ve looked at the wheels and they seem all OK’.

 Have you actually taken each wheel off in turn (or get say a tyre company to do it for you) and thoroughly inspected all areas of the tyres - including the inner side walls?

Sounds as if you might have only walked around the car and had a quick look! 

Kind regards,

Gareth.

Hello Gareth, no I haven't had a good look , I've checked as much as I could by getting under the Vehicle, il'e definitely get the wheels checked at my local tyre centre, il'e keep you posted, thanks for your advice.peter.

Hello, yes sorry, no different when changing gears , on cornering no difference, the only difference is deceleration say from the motorway, as I decelerate the sound diminishes as the vehicle slows , regards Peter.

Thanks Peter,

From the standpoint of eliminating the simple things first, then get the tyres checked as suggested. Good brands of tyres, matched on same axle and sensible tread? 

If you eliminate the tyres, then it seems you might be in for suspecting the rear wheel bearings (get your tyre people to check these for you), or the differential...but let’s not there yet.

Kind regards, 

Gareth.
