    Default 2 problems - 1 sorted and 1 question..

    I have been getting a metallic rubbing noise over the past week of so coming from the front offside, today was the first time i have had time to have a gander at it. I took the wheel off and had a good nosey around, noticed the inside plate(not sure on specific name) was touching the disc on the inside, so a quick easy fix for the rubbing noise. Now while i had the wheel off i was turning the disc as you do, this is where i found a slight knock when turning each way(doesn't do this on nearside) now im not sure if this is a sign of the bearing on the way out as the car has now covered 44k. Also 1 last thing, when you start your car with the front wheels in the air(axle stands) do the front wheels normally turn briefly - or is this an early sign of cluth wear??

    Opinions of what this noise could be guys??

    When you turn the disc back and forward you get a kind of clunking noise? Normal IMO, just the slack in the transmission taking up the play. And yes the wheel moving when they are off the ground and the engine running is normal.

    I wasn't sure about the wheels turning, so thats good to know Re the clunking, i have had it in my mind that the bearing has been on its way out due to the noise i was hearing so i reckon im getting paranoid now

    Cheers for the info buddy

    I remember the first time I saw the wheels turning, when the engine was running and it was jacked up, and thinking exactly the same, that the clutch was on its way out too. Every FWD car Ive had does this.

    The wheels turning is normal it's caused by oil drag in the gearbox and differential,nothing to worry about.

    I thought the starter motor was the reason why the wheels turn, this in turn is the reason for always depressing the clutch while starting a car?

    How the starter motor can turn the wheels?? I don't understand that.

    It is oil drag within the gearbox, and is perfectly normal.
    If the clutch is fully engaged (ie feet off the pedal) and the GB is in neutral there will be slight power transmitted to the wheels - just enough to make them turn. You can easily stop one by holding it, the other will continue to turn and may increase speed...


    You depress the clutch when cranking to reduce the load on the starter motor, as it then doesn't have to turn the geartrain inside the GB too.

    I stand corrected.
    I was told that by a 'mechanic' who was working on my golf, because I told him I thought he'd left it in gear, the wheels only turned while starting.
