So last night into this morning put about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground here in St. Louis. Not a whole lot, but enough to make it a bit dangerous and challenging for others without quattro.
Anyway driving home from work tonight on the highway, my B6 S4 was shaking like crazy! It felt like I blew a tire or, f'd up one of my axels or something. I didn't know what it was, so I slowed down off the highway and took slower back roads the rest of the way home. I thought something might have really been messed up, and it didn't help the night before when i went out for a bit of "snow driving."
It get home and pull into the garage and was inspecting the car for any blown tires or mechanical damage. Nothing... Then knocked the snow, slush and ice out of the wheel wells with my long ice scraper. Then took the car back out again. PROBLEM SOLVED!!! The ice was really packed in around the front driver side wheel pretty bad, bad enough to make the whole car wobble and shake on the highway at around 70mph.
I though I would post this on here incase anyone else in the world decides to Google/Search this forum for it.
I have personally never owned a car that did this due to ice build up.
