    So guys driving home today with the tunes on and went around a roundabout then into a right turn and i could hear a sqwealing/screeching noise, and eveytime i turn right i now hear it, seems to be when above 15/20mph and coming from the rear.

    Now my mate who mot's my car has flagged it as and advisory for the last 3 years, haha, i know bad me but its neve caused me any problems, made a nois etc so we both decided until it got worse to leave.

    So do you think it could be this? If so wheres the best place to buy a kit from as eurocarparts dont stock rear kits and all the ones on ebay look ****.

    So checked the power steerig fluid and its a tad low but well above the min marker, ill top it up, whats the fluid we need and wheres best to buy it.

    So i very much doubt its the power steering so im guessig its the rear wheel bearing?

    have you checked for a family of albanians living in your wheel arch? they could be using the petrol vapour from your charcoal canister vent to keep a fire going and keep them warm, and living off road deposits thrown up by your tyres. Every time you turn right you catch them with your wheel?

    power steering fluid-wise just make sure it's the green mineral oil stuff from Audi itself - dirt cheap though! Wheel bearing wise, I go my rear kit from Jason at allgermanparts I think it was called
