  1. After driving for a few days I would say it's 98% fixed. The only time it will make any noise if I'm pulling out of the driveway and let the wheel go after full lock. Even that has been reduced to a softer noise. So not 100%, but free so I think I'm still ahead. I'll try and track down the other 2% if i get a chance.
  2. Thanks for your help. I was hoping to find a cost effective fix. I will look for used and check on the audi part.
  3. Has anyone had to replace the LCD display for the heater and fan? The section that displays the fan speed and location is broken and bleeding into the whole display. I mocked up a pic (not my car) to show you what it looks like. Please excuse the poor MS paint picture, but it does look very similar to this. Do any of you know if I can buy just the display or do I need a whole new unit? Everything works fine, it's just that soon you won't be able to tell what it says. Thanks Patrick 00 C4

  5. Yea, I'm still alive. :) No big boom. It was actually very easy. I'm still not 100% sure what was making the noise but I greased everything that looked like it might be rubbing and I tightened everything else and all is good. It hasn't made a single sound. The real test will be in the morning when the car is cold. Just wanted to let everybody know that the grease/tighten technique might have worked.
  6. Respect and fear are two different things. I will be taking all normal safety precautions and of course being carful. The fact that the airbag COULD go off if some strange malfunction happened is not going to keep me from working on it. In the same vain if a jack stand fails will I was underneath the car it would hurt/kill me too but it's very very unlikely. That all being said, if you don't hear from me again Maqcuda you were right :)
  7. Thanks for the hint. From what I read my noise most likely is the spring. It gets much worse the colder it is which doesn't seem to match up with a shaft problem. If greasing the spring doesn't work I will surely try your suggestion. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks Patrick
  8. Thanks a lot! I'll try putting some grease on it to stop it from making noise.
  9. does anyone have a pic of the steering clock spring? Where exactly is it? Do you have to remove the whole steering wheel or just the airbag. Thanks for your help Patrick 00 C4
  10. I did it and love it. Talked to a guy who had it on for 1 1/2 years with no problems.
