Engine wining on turning and full lock....

When my motor is on idle it’s very clunky but as soon as I give a little accelerator it goes, also when turning (especially full lock) it’s very noisy like a loud rattle. Any ideas?

The sound disappears once you put revs on and comes straight back when you take your foot off the accelerator. It sounds like a fanbelt screeching........ especially when on full lock

Is your power steering a bit jumpy also when cold? Might not be.

The aux belt tensioner on mine had sized. I would check yours - the roller was ok but the tensioner was not taking up any slack.

If it is that to replace you need top put the front of the car into service mode to access everything.

not a hard job just a bit time consuming. audi wanted me to buy a new tensioner and bracket (excluding cost of belts) for about £200 plus the vat. The part i got from CES was about £60. belts IIRC came in about £25 for the pair.

Don’t suppose you have the link to where you got them from?
Mines just hit 200k

Got them through my pals garage. I would think you could get similar parts from Euro car parts or similar. The belts i got were Gates.
