Car: 2002 1.8T quattro sport.
I've had this problem for a while now, not really sure what is causing it. the jist of it is im getting a grinding noise when i am full left lock and moving, the noise only happens if i touch the acelerator though, if i coast on full lock then i dont have a problem. that for me would rule out any c/v problems (and all the boots are intact aswell), as far as i know if a wheel bearing is on its way then it will grind whilst going straight aswell, i've replaced the bottom mount on the engine which didn't help. from inside the car the noise sounds like it is coming from the rear left side.
would it be worth replacing the top mounts aswell? and would i need to get the car on ramps to do so?
and any other suggestions would be welcomed aswell. im a bit lost :/ i've had all the "doughnuts" checked and they are all in good condition.
and is it worth paying out a bit extra for powerflex mounts if i do need to replace them?
