Check out the anti roll bar bushes they may be the soure of the problem
Did you have your front brake discs replaced lately They can produce a knocking noise as well due to minor cracks
Got it booked in with an independent audi specialist. He said that the ball joints on Q5ss go regularly. Not sure how true that is. Not replaced disks yet on this car so I dont think it can be them.
Also he said it cant be roll bar but well hopefully see soon.
Ah well off to the garage on Thursday to see what the score is
What was the problem I have just noticed on my Q5 when I trun the wheel to the left I get a very noticable squeeking almost grinding sound its fine in a straight line only when I turn left at slow speed. Does this sound similar to your issue
Any update on this problem. Obviously not very common. Thanks
Before I went ahead and ordered my 3.0ltr Q5 sline plus I went through everything on the suspension front incl my questions on this forum. I tried an Sline with sport suspension which was far to hard even the one with standard suspension has a little firm the nicest ride was in an SE with 18s so with the new model god knows what the ride will be like I have ordered standard suspension which I understand has been tweaked for the latest model I can only hope for the softer ride. Reading on all the older reviews the suspension was always picked up as being to firm I can only hope audi took notice.
Hi Chris I also appear to have a similar problem to what you have explained. My SQ5 does not have the dynamic suspension options (select) and sounds as what I can only describe as the sound a loose anti roll bar bush. It is a very light knocking from the passenger side front at about 25 mph and drives me nuts. I like your self am an engineer and have had the car back to Aberdeen audi three times with
Ok my wife had the car back to Aberdeen audi today. They have come to the conclusion that the drivers side front shock absorber is knocking. Our car has only done around 2500 miles. Its booked back in to get it fixed at a later date. I was quite disappointed with a discovery I made before a long journey with a loaded boot. I went to check the tyre pressures (cold) and they were all around 42psi on
Well I took my car in to audi today and the master tech that came out with me for the test drive confirmed there is something not right with the car at the front and knocking noise. He had a look at the brake calliper as apparently the Q5 suffers from broken pad retaining clips but on my car they have been upgraded before leaving the factory. What he did notice was an unusual wear patter on the front
Hi Tonzer. Yes the shocker was fitted and made no difference. The noise according to Neil (master tech) is under the front seat. Body knocking. Its so strange as it only happens at very slow speeds and on very small bumps like just coming to a level crossing. If they dont fix it i am planning to go down the route of getting a car from audi uk too. How did you manage that
Nav system... Any news on release Just this really As you can see from the images posted below this article provided by the guys at carscoop.blogspot.com the Q5 facelift is coming with a number of aesthetic modifications in its front side like the new front grille with chrome inserts the revised headlamps with LEDs the new fog lamps and the redesigned front bumper. The rear fascia of the 2013 audi
Hi q5s Many thanks for that prompt and comprehensive reply. That does clarify a quite a few things didnt even realise about losing the s-button on the gearbox I still have one main question though mate. audi offer ADS with 2 options Damping Control and Dynamic Steering. Like you the reason for selecting ADS is primarily for the suspension. For one as mentioned for such a tall and heavy car it would

which was completely ignored The creaking noise was eventually traced to a ball joint which required replacement. At this moment I cannot confirm any other details (part no™s etc) since the only paperwork provided to my wife covered the standard service items and there is no mention whatsoever of the additional ball joint replacement I understand that the ball joint hadn™t failed but apparently audi
JW_Q5 on 18 June 2011 - 1020 PM said My trusty Q5 has developed a sort of &8216creaking&8217 noise when the steering wheel is turned at low (parking) speeds. The noise seems to be coming from the front driver&8217s wheel area. I&8217m wondering if it may be due to a dry steering knuckle or suspension bush Fortunately the car is going in for a service in a few days&8217 time and I&8217ve asked the garage to take a look. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced such a problem my 2 day old Q5 is suffering from steering creaks when sitting still and going from lock to lock and when doing righleft hand turns then straightening steering very load knockingcreaking noise not good at all from audi what happened to their infamous quality control procedures
I have the s-line sports suspension on 20 off road alloys about 2500 miles on the clock The car is 99% of the time absolutely smooth with a lovely drive - I have no adjustable drive settings so this is standard &39hard&39 setup and the car handles superbly. The only thing I have noticed is not what I would describe as judder but the following Maybe 2 or 3 times I have been on a stretch of road where the surface suddenly feels like it is undulating - rather than wheel or engine judder its almost as though the Q5 hits a &39rhythm&39 from the road surface where the car starts moving up and down and I have to adjust speed (more or less) to make it stop - its a bit hard to describe but imagine driving along with a big guy front and back alternately pushing the front then rear pair of dampers up and down as you are driving along...it was disconcerting the first time and seems to be on big stretches of concrete A road but has only happened a couple of times so I have written it off as a peculiarity Is this the same problem being referred to in this thread Design fault I bet if so that it is something audi will avoid tackling...
Just a thought now that I&39ve got a Q5 and actually seen the wheel set up. I think those snow socks might be better on the rear wheels regardless od what Autosock say &33 I notice in the front wheel arch that the suspension module over hangs the tyre slightly and this could cause a snowy cover snow sock to catch quite easily and may be dangerous. This is clearly why audi say install snow chains only on the back wheels

Those pictures dont reveal what you really need to know. Its hard a hard bump on the LHF it probably wasnt moving at the time (air bags havent been deployed) - but you need to check the roof for ripples and that the door gaps are equal down both sides of the vehicle. There are some very expensive components in the corners of audi vehicles - the ends of radiators cooling fans etc etc That would need
Andy - I got BlackAlcantara combination and its very comfortable I am just surprised at the differences from standard spec Q7 to Q5. the ride is a bit harder than I expected but seats are better than the Q7 what I like MMI 3D view - excellent and sat nav with everything on the maps... 10GB Jukebox - easy to transfer the music to the hard drive even the wife can do it The Key (just like A5) you plug
. dieseldoug on 19 June 2012 - 0802 PM said I dont see a problem with lowering springs when you are not off roading or going through deep water. However it will change the whole steering and suspension geometry and will lead to abmormal tyre wear unless you get audi to reset the steering and suspension doing this is like having the car fully loaded all the time. I did the reverse on my last car another
