I have a noise coming out of the back end of my a4. seems to be coming from left rear wheel area but I am a little concerned it might involve the viscous link. any one know what the typical symptomns are for a failing viscous link?

Thanks in advance.

Audi issued a technical bulletin on this subject. Ask your dealer for a copy of the bulletin to see if they may offer to repair /replace and under what conditions. These bulletins are sometimes like hidden warranty.

Sorry,,,, that should read "viscous link"

The previous owner of my '99.5 1.8T had a humming noise from the same area, and it turned out to be a bad wheel bearing (at about 95k miles). Typically heard at lower speeds, until it's completely shot.
