audi tt: how much to fix my rear subframe on my audi tt qu

This answer was rated:

how much to fix my rear subframe on my audi tt quattro?

AudiDoc :

Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.

AudiDoc :

That is a very odd issue on these cars.

AudiDoc :

Not only did I go to Audi school on these, work on about a hundred of them, I also own an '01 225 Quattro TT

AudiDoc :

however, if it's truly bent, the best course of action is to replace with a used one

Customer:

whats the price run for one?

Customer:

ruffly?

AudiDoc :

that's a tough call. I've literally never had to replace one. Have had to do a few A4's, and the subframe usually runs about 300-400. I can give you good used Audi parts sources also

AudiDoc :

labor is likely going to be in the 700-800 range

AudiDoc :

let me post up a few links to good Audi parts sources

Customer:

k, could i take to a frame shop and have in bent back?

AudiDoc :

being that it's stamped steel, I'm sure it can be straightened, unless it's truly tweaked beyond repair

AudiDoc :

last good Audi-only yard I use: http://www.force5auto.com/

AudiDoc :

And here is a good general parts source

Customer:

would you have any idea what it would cost to get it bent back, estimate?

AudiDoc :

shouldn't be more than $400, if it's repairable

AudiDoc :

frame straightening is a labor intensive process

Customer:

and a frame shop would be my best bet for that?

AudiDoc :

absolutely

AudiDoc :

not a general repair shop

AudiDoc :

Hope this helps, and please let me know if I can be of further help in the future. I know these cars quite well

Customer:

i still drive it daily and have been for 3 months, you think thats a good indication it is reparible?

AudiDoc :

I would concur with that, yes

Customer:

alright man well thanks for the help

AudiDoc :

wait, poor service?

AudiDoc :

Not quite sure where I failed here
