Loud squeak when starting

Post by Fred Day » Tue Jun 05, 2018 8:45 pm

My Q2 Quattro diesel has developed a very loud mechanical squeak when starting from both cold and at normal operating temperature with the stop/start system. The noise has not got any worse but doesn’t sound right especially if the windows are down or in an enclosed area. Is this a known problem which I should refer back to the dealer?

There should be no squeak from the car when starting as you describe so a visit to Audi is a must. Whether its a dry bearing or sleeve on the starter motor or something more involved best to get it checked out for peace of mind if nothing else.
