 :400: to the forum.

It may be the bearing behind the exclave cylinder or the ring gear that the rivets, in case of expansion, move a little.

In any case, it is not difficult to access them

Hi bigtesmelv88, and :400: to the Forum.

Firts of all can you confirm which Model of Trophy you have
as this Forum is dedicated to the latest 1215cc Model released in 2012,
and I see in your Profile you have a "1200" cc Trophy ?

If it's the latest Model - which Gear are you in at that speed with those Rev's ?

If it's not the latest model, the ability of our Members
to provide help and information may be quite limited.

Cheers  :821:

If you have a 1215 c.c. Trophy ( latest Trophy model ) the noise may be normal.  I have a slight "rattling" noise in neutral with the clutch lever released.  The noise disappears when the clutch lever is pulled in.

My friend has a 2013 Explorer XC with the same engine/trans.  He has had the same noise with the clutch lever out since he bought it new 50K miles ago.  The noise hasn't gotten any worse, he has told me.  He thinks the gears are moving around a bit on one of the shafts.

He tells me not to worry about the noise.  He is a national Audi / Volkswagen service rep and I trust what he is telling me.

Gotcha - He knows all about that issue.   He has made several trips to Germany about that.

My other riding buddy with an Audi got one heck of a trade-in deal over that issue.   Worked out great for him.  He is a very satisfied Audi owner.
