Re: A4 remote locks

I got the same problem before.
I told my dealer to check it, and they find out that
the lock in the left hand side door is not working 
well with the security system... (that was what he
told me.) And he changed the remote lock for my 
left hand door.
And.... I also have the experience that the remote
control doesn't work well. Even I stand really close
to my car, sometimes I need to push the button few
times to open my door.

Other question, my car starts to have break noise.
and... few times got the noise when I made U turn.
Any clue???
