Re: A4 Squeak


I've got exactly the same problem with my '95 A4TQ right now. I've been at
the dealer and they are going to change all control arms because the
bushings are gone. Because of this the inside of my front tyres (and rear,
because I changed front/rear) are completly worn out (215/17/50). Next week
they are going to change all of this incl all four tyres at no cost for me.
Audi is paying! Thank God for that!

Good luck!
