    Can anyone give me an idea of what may be wrong here... A few weeks ago, on my 1.9 TDI Sport quattro, I started getting a clunk when turning right, not all the time, more so when I go round a small roundabout and take my foot off the accelerator - so the front left dips a bit. On Thursday night I put 10mm hubcentric spacers on and all seemed well. Today when I drove the car, I had the windows open. I noticed that when I turned left a little bit - up to about half a turn - there's a squeak-squeak-squeak sound. It's linked to road speed. Then, as time went on, the squeaking stayed when turning left, but also I'm getting a click. Again, it's when turning left and it sounds like those bits of card in kids' bike spokes - it's also speed related. I haven't had chance to investigate it yet as it's 26 degrees here and a bit warm for it. Any ideas guys?
