No, not flashing. The more I think about it the more I agree that it could be the bearing. I just dont feel any major vibrating so I didnt think about it. Thanks again for the help.

Kenny

Also, the noise is as soon as I start driving. And I cant remember the code number off hand. I just know it said emissions, i know there are about 4 or so different emission codes though on an Audi.

Hey MotorFabrik, welcome! And thanks for jumping in on my other post about the long cranking.
Looking forward to the assistance. My 04 A4 Avant is a work in progress and I'm sure I'll have questions along the way. Where is your shop?

Hey Kenny,

If you could get those codes, it would be a lot easier to point you in the right direction as to whats going on with your car

I put the new airbox on yesterday and drove it today to work and that got rid of the CEL, and 90% of the noise. I dont have the snorkel that goes over the air duct thats right by the air box and i think that would get rid of the rest if the noise. But I'm having problems finding one on ebay and the internet. Any suggestions on where I can find one?

Glad to hear it was just the intake! You can take a look at ECS (http://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-B6_A4-...take/)...under "Air Box". They have the ducting there.

The dealer can be an alternative source (the part #s are on ECS's website)

would you say that the Q5 is a glorified TIG?

I have just picked up a 2009 q5 with 340,000km on it.
its in great shape and runs well.
problems:
-Amp dead, how do I get it out to replace?
-Steering is like driving with no power, is it done or can I adjust it somehow?
-rides as stiff as a go-kart! can I change that?
Without drive select.

Hey Billrh,

Although not sold in Canada as yet, the Q3 is more similar to the Tiguan. (The Q3 will be available in Canada starting 2015).

The Q5 has a completely different gearbox, chassis and 4 wheel drive system.
