    Whats that full lock knock?!

    Hi guys n gals,

    So i got a little knocking sound when i turn the car full lock to the left hand side and drive it in circles slowly, no knock when i turn it to the right, Car is a 2000 Audi A4 1.8t Sport.

    So does anyone know whats causing it? CV joint or part of the suspension system?

    Car only recently passed it MOT so surely they would have picked it up if it was a major problem, and it only occurs at full lock.

    There is a slight banging and knocking, very quiet, if i have the radio off and listen hard when going over "rough" ground but i just assume that the suspension system will make some noise as it is a 10 year old car.

    Just looking for a little insight as i dont want my suspension to collapse when im driving on the motorway

    Cheers all!

    Jake
