    Does this sound like an outer cv joint gone?have checked the wheel bearing and no play there what else could it be?is there any way of checking if the cv has gone?it has started to make a squealing noise not all the time but quite often with a slight knocking noise over bumps when turning from time to time?

    I have the same problem but i now cant drive it! i jacked up the front end both sides, turned each wheel and they both same bad. like grinding/scraping sound. even lock up wen i turn the wheel backwards! just before i jacked it up, as i drove onto the drive, it popped out of 1st gear and got a knocking/grinding noise! im maybe thinking it could be the thrust bearing??? :/
