what it could by.Garage had a quick look but said they could'nt find anything wrong.Thanks in advance Frank. :D

Could be a lot of different things...try checking the wheel nuts are tight..next check the brake caliper is not fouling on the disk..check the disc pads are notworn out..then theres the anti roll bar.check its not fouling on the frame..check the play on the suspension link arm..have you checked the brake dust shield isnt fouling on the wheel.

if the garage cant find any fault then i would take it to another garage a.s.a.p...

does it happen on right turns or left turns...could be a faulty steering rack...

good luck mate ;)
