    Full Lock Clicking badly, and then hub rubbing?

    I know the hub rubbing sounds rude, it aint ill come back to that.



    Firstly, my 2.2 coupe.

    Pulling out of a junction, near to full lock, turning right.. majorly deep clunking sound, like a ratchet or something, but a deep sound, something you think crap.. that isnt good! This has been happening for a while now, but ive got my weekend free so need to know what to check/look for/change etc.

    Then secondly, the hub rubbing.

    I pull out of my drive, go up the road approx 20mph if that, i had my window open, theres like a rubbing sound coming from the hub, i can hear a feint grinding, and also the brakes squeak like helk at the moment. And finally the other day I was driving down the road, about 30mph and there was a constant squeak/screech coming from the front (i think it was the left wheel)

    Ideas please guys?

    Knocking noise is more than likely going to be a dry c.v joint due to either a weeping or split rubber c.v boot, stick your head underneath and look for a nice mess of grease by either hubs.
    As for the other noise, more than likely be either your low on your front pads or it could be coming from a front wheel bearing, check your pads first and if they are ok it will more than likely be from the bearing, only way to cure is replacement, you can spray grease/lube on the inner seal of the bearing but it won't last. Hope this helps
