Yes, that's the front CV axle and like BaotPi pointed out, there might be a broken CV joint within the axle causing that noise.

The good news is that it's VERY easy to replace it and not too much money (about $650). You could also convert your car to RWD for probably the same parts cost as that one CV axle, if you want.

Since you already have the car on a lift or have access to a lift, you can probably swap it out in an hour or two.

Some tricks:

1) When undoing the bolts going to the front differential, have someone sit in the car and press the brakes, this will make it much easier to unbolt it without putting strain on the drivetrain.

You can also look at this guide to see how others removed that part, in order to do a RWD conversion, but of course you'd only care about the removal, not the full conversion if you don't intend to do that.

The other possibilities is that the front hub/carrier might have a broken bearing or something, but even that is cheap/easy to replace.

I also would have to wonder if there is a cheaper EXACT audi part for the CV axle, might be worth checking.

Thats very interesting as my 2011 SL is doing the same thing. Sounds like an axle to me in my case although i have not raised it and diagnosed it yet.
I am a professional mechanic so the noise in mine is VERY familiar.
Keep us posted on what axle you use if thats what you replace.
I will follow up once i get mine on the hoist.

I was able to pull out driver side front axle shaft, it took some fiddling around but finally realize the trick. I will make the DIY video when I reinstall the part.

I have found a place in Gainsville, FL only 40 miles form my home who specialises in Audi CV joint and axles. they probably will be able to refurbish it for me for <$ 300 each and their work comes with life time warranty. So i am going to give it a try. www.raxles.com (if not allowed moderator please delete the address)

Axle shaft was definitely the problem, it flip flops like someone with completely broken neck.

Gallardo user manual has instructions on home to remove and reinstall axle shaft. One needs to follow them, hub has to be loose.

If you look at reassembly it specifies torque like 000800-31a or something like that, any one knows where we can decode these torque specifications.

Mine turned out to be a pebble in the brake rotor. Im happy about that! My 2 cents- make sure it is an axle before u order one!

Curious on how widespread is this issue on the -4 models?
