View Full Version : B7 S4 binding noise

03-18-2009, 09:41 PM
My 2005.5 S4 makes a very low frequency binding sounding noise from the drivetrain when turning very slowly in parking lots and the like. It sounds like a differential that's locking up to me but I'm really not sure.

Obviously, this car has Quattro... is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas?

It almost sounds like it's coming from the rear of the vehicle and resonating the trunk cavity...?

Center differential? Rear? Brakes?

Anyone have any guesses?

bleicht: you get this sorted? My car has done this since day one when I bought it.

Really low speed at full lock turning, the car almost feels like its dragging one of the rear wheels. or the diff is locking up or something.

My B6 S4 does the same thing. i think it's normal, but it's not a pleasant sound.
