    Hi all

    I've got an Audi Allroad (2000). Recently the air compressor for the suspension has started making an awful racket, its obviously on its way out. None of the air springs seem to be sagging, so Im hoping only the compressor itself needs replaced. Does anybody have any idea of the costs involved ? I'd rather avoid using an Audi main dealer if possible ! Any help would be much appreicated.

    Cheers

    Has the compressor suddenly started making this noise or has it been getting worse over a longer period?My allroad has a similar problem and on investigation i found that the compressor was touching the underside of the spare wheel well,hence the racket.
    As far as i'm aware it is a dealer only part,cost around the 1000 mark so not cheap.
    I'd try a breakers yard rather than using a main dealer.

    Hi

    Yes it just started getting very noisy yesterday. Is the compressor not the silver cyclindrical shaped thing on the far left of the boot compartment ?

    Cheers

    No.To get access to the compressor,put car into top suspension setting and then jack up mode,crawl under the back of vehicle and you'll see it just in front of spare wheel well pretty much inline with the anti roll bar.

    Hi

    It turns out one of the compressors mounts had come off due to corrosion.
    All it needed was a plate riveted back on using 4 rivets. So I presume this could be quite a common fault. If you took it to an Audi garage they would probably replace it costing about 1000 UK pounds when it should cost about 50 UK pounds.

    Locate the compressor and see it moves about, if so you probably have the same problem.

    Cheers
