Is anybody having issues with chattering noise from the skyroof on their A3. I purchased a 2010 A3. The noise seems to be coming from the roof lines. Can this noise be fixed?

There is a TSB out for this same issue, only on the Q7: TSB #2013874/3. It would be worth calling your dealer and inquire if they can take care of it. You're under warranty, yes?

Thanks Pete.. It's at the dealer now, for the second time. They told me that this has been an issue on the Audi's that have the big sky-roof, Q7 and A3. I am wondering if there is actually a "fix" for it. The noise drives me nuts! Not what I expected in an Audi..
What does TSB mean?

TSB - Technical Service Bulletin is a posted, advised repair procedure. They are basically notices posted by companies to mechanics advising them in repair procedures when there is a repeated, unanticipated fault. They are not to be confused with recalls, as if you're out of warranty you will be stuck paying to repair something that just has a TSB posted on it.

Some additional info on this problem here: TSB #2013874/3 Creaking/Rattling Panoramic Sunroof - AudiWorld Forums (

Dealers have been able to repair some vehicles, others are stuck with an elusive squeak.

This vehicle is warrantied for a long time! It's a 2010. I just hope it doesn't take that long to fix. Thanks for the info.
