    Default Rough sound/feel when turning right

    Hi All,

    2008 Vectra 1.9 CDTI 150

    New here. I noticed this week that when i turn the steering wheel past one o clock to turn right there is a rough/rubbing sound and feeling coming from just the driver side of the engine bay. What could this be?

    Id either go with the dust shield behind the brake disc, or the suspension top bearing.

    Check the engine mount too - if it's come loose then the engine sits on the subframe and the steering arms contact the drive shafts when you turn right.

    I'm speaking from experience here...
