    Default Any Audi experienced people, A2's?

    Gettin pee'd off now, it went in for a CV knock so joint replaced, came out of garage with a million warning lights on, they then changed ABS sensor and wheel bearing, still warnings, read codes again and saying ABS pump...

    On the A2 forum they say a specialist tool is needed to pop in the new bearing, a press was used as I helped just to make sure it was a new part!... Still owe for the previous work and might not go back to pay!!

    Still knocks now and been told the older A2 has a dodgey ARB bar that has plastic bushes that fail and knock, very common! New version of the bushes solve this...

    Getting well pee'd off...

    The A2 has a simple front suspension setup nothing particularly special.

    But poor parts from el cheapo suppliers can cause all sorts of faults especially around the abs sensor ring sitting perfectly aligned with the sensor.

    Bushes, bearings, poorly manufactured CV joint casings etc etc will cause faults to show up.

    The ARB bushes are a very common fault and usually the first thing to replace when knocking occurs, CV joints can last for 70,000ish +, under normal driving conditions if the boots stay intact.
