Ok latest issue with the A3 is that there is a knocking/clunking off the front whenever you move over slightly uneven surface. For example if i simply roll the car over the drain on our drive i hear the knock. Had the car up on the ramps and nothing loose on anti roll bar drop links or such, could it be suspension top mounts of wishbones??

Anything normal to go on these babies??

Cheers

Go for genuine bushes mate as alot of the cheaper ones are poor same as in after market bottom arms which seem to be a third of the price because they last a third of the time

Hi, iv had the same issue,

cost me £££'s to get it fixed in the end plus VW Stealer dint help.

Have a read here

long story short

VW said ARB, fitted noise still there, then 2 new front shocks and top mount bearings, fitted noise still there.

Independent said bearing bracket on lower arm (wishbone) fitted 2 new ones.

Noise gone

Cheers for all the comments, what a nightmare you had with the stealers they are something else eh?

So it turned out to be the wishbone mounts on your motor. Good you got it sorted out though.

For the anti roll bar bushes is it the ones on the bar attached to the car that are usual to go?? Anyone know the part numbers?

Cheers

The noise seems to go when you put a slight turn on the steering so could be putting pressure on the anti roll bar so hopefully thats what it is since its cheapest fix. Whats the thoughts??
