Hi, Ive got a 2006 2.0tdi a3.
got 40k on the clock.
went from leeds to stevenage a couple of times. After a while of the car running, and going considerable speeds, it makes a noise, like metal in contact with metal, as the engine ticks over.
It does it on idle, but also when the clutch is down, it does it worse. It only makes this noise after long-ish trips, but the engine temperature is always at 90 (middle on the gauge- so not overheating)
I took a video of it on idle, after a 2.5hr trip, and the sound is on there too.
One neighbour said it sounds like the clutch bearing, in which case its a £500 (quoted £1500 from audi) clutch refit.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
