Can anyone help ?
I have a clunking noise when I let the clutch up an engage the drive. It is
only really noticeable in first when I am starting to move off from
stationary. It also does it when I press the clutch pedal on stopping. I can
minimise it by being ultra smooth on the clutch pedal but it is usually
I have had the car up on a ramp with a mechanic and we managed to isolate it
to the prop shaft ( the main shaft from the front diff to the rear). There
seems to be to be quite a bit of play on the prop shaft but the mechanic was
unsure if this was significant or not.
My questions are:
1.Has anyone else suffered these symptoms on Quattro cars ?
2.Does anyone know how much play is acceptable in the prop shaft ?
The car is a 2000 A4 2.8 Quattro with 88,000 miles.
Thanks in advance,
