Thread: RS3 Squeaking Brakes. How, exactly, was YOURS fixed?

    Default RS3 Squeaking Brakes. How, exactly, was YOURS fixed?

    There has been lots of talk on the forum about the RS3 "factual" issue of squeaking brakes. There's also been all sorts of comments, and some "waffle", regarding "fixes",...dealers measuring the "tone" of the squeal, various forms & editions of dampers, & some "fixes" that turned out to never "fix" anything after a couple of weeks/further use, etc etc etc. Lots of different scenarios.
    So, What I want to know is, if YOUR "squeal" has totally GONE, then please tell me what the Dealer did to make YOUR annoying problem go away,...permanently.
    If you don't know, please don't reply, but if you really do know the specific details of what YOUR Dealer did for YOUR RS3, then please advise, it will be helpful to me & other driver/owners who have the issue.
    Also, if there is a Audi "service reference" number to this issue, please advise.
    Pickles.

    I took mine to the dealer (Morington), they captured the squeal on their phone and a week later i had new dampeners (weights) ready to be installed (i drove the car in-between).

    Car had 4,000km's on it at the time.

    That was 6-8 weeks ago and not one squeal since :)

    There is a TPI # 204568514 someone else published (my dealer was aware of the problem as I was not the first to have it done)

    Thanks Nath, that's exactly the sort of info I was looking for, which will be of assistance to me when I approach our Dealer.
    Thank You, Pickles.

    All the best Martin - it was a straight forward process, surprisingly :)

    Thanks Nath :), had mine in the workshop, covered under warranty, they asked me to come back as the dealer ordered the parts.
