    Vibration from Front Right Wheel on a Left Turn! Driving me mad! Please Help...

    Hi all,

    Can anyone help to diagnose this fault!!? Been to two garages and an Audi main dealer, still no joy.

    When I turn left at ~20MPH+ I get a loud vibration/knocking from the right front wheel. Sounds rotational, and non-metallic.

    Also doenst happen when turning right or straight!?

    Checked wheel arch liner and nothing is touching the wheel on left or right locks. Also there is no play in the wheel to suggest bearings.

    Thought it could be something to do with the anti-roll bar, as it happens on corners when there is a slight roll on the car.

    Seriously this is driving me mad and im not able to enjoy driving.

    Anyone experianced similar or can think of what it could be?

    Car is A3 Sline Quatrro TDI170, 57 plate, 3dr, 18" aftermarket wheels, eibach prokit suspension (happened also before this was fitted).

    Many thanks in advance. Phil.

    i woulda put it down to the drive shaft is your car quattro, unlikely but could be vibration though the propshaft may be worth trying it off

    Wheel bearing?

    Jack the car up and feel the suspect wheel for play up and down and side to side.

    Get someone to watch from underneath and see where the slop is if any.
