Tin top knocking sound...driveshaft?

So my tin top has just started a knocking noise from the front. It sounds like a wheel bearing type noise but only when I am free wheeling at around 1500-2000 revs. It stops with the slightest application of throttle or brake..... Which makes me question if it's possibly something else?

My car is an A6 avant, 2.0 TFSI Regular 2 wheel drive not Quattro.

Any ideas or experiences?

Many thanks in advance 😶‍🌫️


I am starting to think it could be the drive shaft cv joint? it only knocks when the wheels are straight. Stops as soon as i turn the wheel, brake or accelerate.. it does stop when i take it out of gear.. anyone think the same?
