    Morning all.

    So over the last few months I've started getting a small clunk through the steering wheel when turning at slow speeds and occasionally when hitting uneven road surfaces or speed bumps.

    I've had each front corner up on the jack but cant feel any play in the track rod ends. The CV boots are intact too.

    Any other thoughts on common issues that might be worth looking at before I take it to my local independent?

    The car is a front wheel drive A4 Avant Tdi143 63 plate with 104k.

    Cheers
    Jon

    Could be anything, but my money is on drop links. At 104k miles it could be one of the top arms too. Let us know how you get on.

    This is the subject of a TPI notice which I can’t post from home and is often the wheel bearing unit shifting around in its housing, we have had a few in now where one of the screw heads has sheared off.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
