    I have a creaking noise coming from the left front side, it sounds like a cv joint going but its not only when im moving. It will do it if im stationary turning the steering wheel. Also it feels very loose over that side, if i go over a bump it will turn my steering slightly. The other thing i have noticed is that the steering has slight play in it but only if i turn sharply left . Does anyone know where i should look first? Thanks. Lee.

    i would look at the track rod end, get someone to rock your steering and feel the ball joint to see if there is play in it

    Could be a spring. A mate with a TT had some nasty noises like that and it turned out that one of the front springs snapped.

    One of the springs have proberly snapped on the 'Pigtails' at the top or bottom. Common probelm on the VAG stuff.
