Have you been able to read the code(s)?
Autozone will pull them for free, but you will most likely need a VAG-COM (or dealer) to clear them.

I'm at about the same milage and mine need to be replace soon to. I can hear them knocking or clicking when I make a left or right turn... I haven't checked around to see how much that would cost professionally to get fixed... has anyone else priced it out yet??

If your car is CPO, it may be covered. I have had 4 replaced, 3 on the V6 and 1 on the W8, and all were covered by warranty.

hey sorry its been so long i have been travling and working full time i havent had time to do anything.i will post as soon as i get the time . it really dosnt look to hard to do. just un bolt the wheel and two uper control arms, not the stearing point. then the drive line bolt and the six 12 point bolts on the inside, it should just pull out of the hub once the drive line bolt is out. you dont need to take the brake caliper off.
