    After an aggressive start off lights earlier this evening, I started to get a weird knocking noise under load???It almost sounds like a stone being shaken in a tin can? Now it only happends under hard throttle and when when turning right???I thought CV, but theres no noise when I roll without touching the throttle??Ive never heard this sort of noise before, and I jacked it up and saw nothing?

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like the start of cv wear, usually most prevelent under acceleration

    I hate to scare you, but when I got that noise, one of the turbo impellers had sheared and was rattling in the housing....

    Does the car still go as well as it did, or is it now underpowered? It could be that a part of the turbo vanes has broken off, rather than the whole thing, but....

    Check for white / blueish smoke on startup tomorrow too - if so, you may have cooked the turbo on one side....

    Hopefully it isnt that and its just a cv joint!
