Hi Superfueler, the plate was NWK243 and is Christchurch based. I'm not sure if it sold or not. However, it is in a lot better condition than it had been in the past and the owner has done well to get it where it is today. It was on Trade Me in late 2019 early 2020 ish in a really bad way.

Mine only wobbles when my better half drives it  ;D

it's not an uncommon issue, so the dealers are likely to have the parts in stock

👍👍👍

If you bought it from a dealer take the car back and get them to sort it.

thanks for the quick reply - yep, sounds like the same symptoms.

Any suggestions for parts suppliers in NZ (ideally Auckland)?

Top one - engine mount is dead - both need replacing, known issue as they wear over time. Consider upgraded mounts from somewhere like 034Motorsport.

Bottom one - sound like your fuel pressure sensor is not happy - from memory its mounted under the intake manifold on the fuel rail - cheap part to replace, a little time consuming to do so (unless you are handy on tools, and can do it yourself). Again fuel codes are worth investigating further as failure can lead to much worse consequences.

Inner CV issue. It's a DSG with tripod joints???

My wifes Touran is going it now. Wobbles gently through the car, NOT the steering and the instant you let of the throttle, it stops?

The bearings in the joint wear, and also wear grooves into the housing.

A workmates one munched itself turning sharp and broke the bearing into pieces too, after wobbling for a while.

I'm hoping to do my Mrs ones this weekend, with a set of spare used shafts I happen to have already. She's got clicky outers too, so whole shafts are a no brainer.

Hi all,

I just did a scan on my RS4 that I recently picked up and found these two codes below,

Is it something I need to action right away? no engine lights on the dash, but I did experience twice the car stalling at cold idle.
