Right i have a 53 plate GSI,there has been a noise what appears to be coming from the passenger side front wheel.
My first thought...driveshaft,so i take it to perrys and yes the driveshaft is fuzzy ducked so i have a new one...did it solve the problem,a big fat NO.
So then am wracking my brain over what it could be,the noise happens when putting pressure on that side like taking left hand corners and going round islands....am now thinking maybe the hub is cream crackerd...couldnt be a bearing as its not a constant whining noise.
Anyway off back to perrys it goes,it appears to be the cv joint!! Ahhh why didnt i think about that duh. So it gets a new cv joint,perrys says all done and noise has gone. Took it for a test drive.... ARRRGGG the noise is still there!!!
I tell perrys they wouldnt believe till i took them out in it,so they kept it...they have now decided it must be something wrong with the gearbox!!
At this point am pulling my hair out as it just appears that perry is giving it guess work,and this is going to be a big bill i have to pay....
They have had the gear box off and theres not fault,everyone at perrys is baffled about it and none of them have a clue
So you guys HELP!!!!
Please,its driving me crazy!!
