Re: Rattle - Solved !!!!!!

It's been a whole week after the service and I can confirm that the rattle is finally solved. It now feels so relaxed and I'd even say upmarket. Which is funny because the car is the same as before with only a minor rattling being removed but that makes the psychological feeling of a better car. And...

Re: Rattle - Solved !!!!!!

I'm back from the service. They have changed the steel wire (Bowden cable) that links the handle and the door opening mechanism. Driving from the service to the office I couldn't hear any rattle anymore but I will keep you posted because I need to drive a bit more through the rough roads around home...

Re: Rattle - Solved !!!!!!

I've been called to go for that door handle mechanism replacement next Wednesday and will let you know how things go. BTW, I asked them on the phone of that's a known recall and they said no. In their words, the last time they examined the door and the noise and determined it's the steel wire mechan...

Re: Annoying rattle

The fact that a brand new car rattles when driving really drives me nuts. I am still waiting for them to receive the replacement door handle mechanism and call me for replacement under warranty but TBH I am not sure that's the real problem. Let's hope it is.

Re: Rattle - Solved !!!!!!

I've described the same problem in a few other threads here. I have the same driver door handle rattle that I thought of fixing the same way as you - adding a bit of rubber between the handle and the rubber bushing on which the handle lays. But this is a brand new car and I don't think I should appl...

Re: Annoying rattle

Another update. Went in for another inspection today for the inside drivers door handle rattle. They will replace the entire handle assembly with the Bowden cables, etc. They've ordered the parts and will let me know once ready for replacement.

Re: Annoying rattle

Just a follow-up. I rushed to praise how the dealers fixed the rattle by taking apart the whole door panel which was a bit strange in the first place sine the rattle was in the door handle which I told them. Alas, the door handle rattle is still there. I booked another visit. Basically, it rattles o...

Brakes momentarily hardening

That happened twice this week. It’s shortly after I start the car after it had been in the garage for the night. The brakes are OK then all of a sudden the pedal would harden and that took me by surprise since I almost bumped into another car. I had to jump on the pedal which feels like it’s not lub...

Re: Petrol 4x4

I have a 4Drive 1.4TSI. As a matter of fact there’s no FWD version of the XCellence here in Bulgaria :) I guess it’s simply too popular to have an AWD here and people don’t buy FWD SUV-s. Which has its reasons in our rubbish roads even in the city, harsh winters, mountainous locations, etc. But in a...

Re: Automatic or manual — and why?

The traffic.jam you experienced... These has become a pure pleasure with DSG, ACC and traffic jam assist.. Automatic any time... As I understand it, what “traffic jam assist” adds to ACC with DSG is also the automatic steering for a complete hands off operation. I can imagine how cool that is becau...
