    Odd problem with door lock ,

    Not the correct item, the central locking in the S3 is operated by a vacuum, that's for an electrically operated system... I ended up buying a used door lock from German ebay whilst being aware that their passenger side was our driver side; fitted fine

    Failed cam belt tensioner? Rev it enough and the belt tensions it self, let the revs drop back down and the belt slackens and you get the noise again? Take the belt cover off and check how tight the belt is.
