    Clunking noise at a steer of 90 degrees+ to the right.

    Hello Audi folks

    Most recently when steering to the right at a 90 degree steer or more, a 'clunking' sound is coming from beneath. I was hoping if any of you have experienced this issue before, or if you could shed any light on what this could be.

    The more the steer, the louder this 'clunking' sound...

    Many Thanks

    Could be a CV joint well past it's best or something mechanical hitting someting it shouldn't, have you lowered the car at all? Is so check for witness marks where something might be making contact on full lock.

    i recently had lowering springs fitted and was getting a clunk noise after that, so took it to a different garage highly recommended and under inspection turned out to be bearings and top mounts, which should of been replaced when fitting lowering springs. i had to replace all four corners because i left it clunking for a couple of weeks and 2 out of the 4 had popped through the bodywork near enough, the clunking noise was due to the springs coiling up. my advice would to get it checked asap buddy cost me £230 to put right

    Has it had a clutch changed recently? If so it could be your gearbox bracket is abit loose from the mount, just look under the airbox and you should see it. Also have a look if youv got a split in your cv as stated dp its the most likely cause of the nock.
