Hello People

I'm more or less certain what is wrong but i'm just after a bit more confirmation.

Basicly i have a knocking/clicking noise when turning (left or right), there is a bit of play on both driveshafts (which just got pulled as an advisery on the mot) also there is inside edge tyre wear on the nearside wheel.

Now the grinding noise i think is the outer cv joint (no leak or split on any of the gaitors)

The wheel wear i think is a ball joint, but could that of caused the cv joint to go !Removed! up?

I'll be lowering it soon but i just want to make sure everything is alright.

It's a MK1.5 1.8TDDi Estate

Cheers

Shane

play in the shafts most likely to be the cv joint clicking could possibly be the cv joint grinding either cv or the wheel bearing and you need the tracking done after its been sorted if youre lowering get used to it not sure how the focus holds up but a lot of cars when lowered go through bushes and bearings quite regularly
