If you have any sort of warranty, they should fix it
Iím glad I read your post makav3li
as this is one guy that didnít know the cam followers were a problem in the B7ís
. I am a first-time Audi owner for the past 2 Ĺ years with a 2007 A4 2.0TQ reading 41,000 miles approx. and an AW member since late Nov. 2009. This is the first time I can recall seeing this mentioned.
Would you be in a position to tell the Old Dog
the early warning signs, the fix, and since I am still under warranty until Dec 2011 for the original 4-year warranty with an extended two-year warranty kicking in after that, is this something I can ask them to look at even if I am not suffering any problems that I know of?
Any guidance you, or other members, can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Forewarned is forearmed.
