    got a strange noise appearing just after i start my car up, gets louder as i press the scceleration pedal and when turning left or right when stationary, and driving.

    i know the right cv joint needs doing but surely it aint that? i was thinking maybe flywheel, or sumat to do with steering. heres a short clip of me driving round a corner to park up, then when stationary turning left then right, what you guys rekon

    help appreciated thanks ;)

    sounds power stearing related, is the fluid up to the right level ????

    CV joints clunk on full lock when your moving. If you need one I`d just get one from Audi they are about £110 for a S3 all in joint boot grease bolt etc
