Hello all.
I have what I think is a duff Cv joint on my ek 1.4. Symptoms are a knocking/grinding sound especially at low speed. Seems to knock in time with wheel speed. Loudest with foot off the accelerator with no brakes at slow speed. Considered warped disc or possible rubbing off new wider wheels (195) but any thoughts or help are really gratefully received.

Cheers

Matt

Jack up the corner of the car you suspect is being noisy, and give things a good shakedown.

grinding is usually a wheel bearing noise.

Thanks chaps. I took the wheel off and loosened off the caliper and put it back together. The slide pins (I think that some the right name) were a bit dry so greased them up. Put the wheel back on. Hey presto. May be a bit of crap got in there or something. Who knows. Seems OK now.
