    A4 2014 3.0 tdi chain rattle

    @Vappy - I’m having the DMF replaced (dual mass flywheel) while the gearbox is out, not the DPF. @kev1973 £4K! Wow! My local vw audi specialist is an ex Bristol Audi technician and has done the job a few times. Lots of garages wouldn’t even touch it! Tensioners and chain kit is around £900 then...

    thanks for the reply. Warranty company have agreed the claim but I only have a limit of £1,000. Total price is £1820 plus I’m going to have the DMF replaced at the same time along with anything else the garage thinks could be done while the engine and gearbox is out!

    A7 sound clip engine idle - healthy??

    I asked them to. I’d seen so many videos where people were diagnosing chain rattle that I’d thought I’d do the same. Can’t hear a rattle, but thought someone hear would have better knowledge on what to listen out for. Plus when buying a car 200 miles away and having it delivered, it’s best to...
