    This problem has been around for a while ,
    When turning left off a roundabout accelerating there is what sounds like a metal on metal rumble.
    If i cruise off the roundabout its fine, The noise is also there if i turn left at the top of a hill under load, Never happens when driving straight or when turning right...
    Ive had the car on a ramp and can not see any obvious signs other than a slight amount of play in the outer cv joint on the passenger side front...
    Could this be the problem?

    Have you tried raising the ride height slightly on the front to see if it makes any difference Paul?

    Was thinking you might have tired bushes/balljoints or possibly the driveshaft?? Although you'd expect knocking, you never know, worth a go lol

    Ive bought poly bush's for the front wishbones but thats too much work for the one day i can get on the ramp,
    There is only one joint that seems to have any play ... so im going to change that, The front brakes ( tired grooved discs) make a nasty noise now too. but thats an easy fix.
