Hi All,

Sorry if this sounds a little strange;

I was wondering if anyone experienced any loud flapping like noises because the plastic engine guard isn’t installed. - the bigger part at the front?

I had my water pump replaced at my mates place, had a tough time with it and forgot to put this plastic engine guard /tray back on when we finished.

Car started fine, no leaks, codes etc and went home.
Next day once i hit 40-50 kms i hear this loud noise like a flapping NON metalic noise coming from the front area.

Can noise be due to this plastic tray? I only took it off to drain radiator and now lost it too!

thanks for reading.

It does sound like wind buffeting on the other plastics, front plastic joins to other plastics so it essentially is creating a vibration onto the other plastics.
Hi mate - thank you so much i really hope its the cause. I rang 3 Audi Dealers no one has a New one i can buy right away. I ordered one but will take a week, so need to look for a 2nd hand one.

thanks for reply.

i would just wait a week, second hand will probably have scuff marks
Hi mate,

You were correct, it was the other half of the plastic tray flapping from the wind & hitting the road making the loud noise.

I temporarily clamped it down and the noise stopped.

Thanks for your help pal. i can now wait for new one, a little expensive but cant avoid it.
