    Default Steering fault

    I seem to have developed a steering fault recently - the car pulls left and right and TBH feels like its all over the roadalong with this there is a clunking noise coming from the nearside fronti have checked the drop links and they are fine - any other idea's?? I also noticed today a chirping noise coming from the engine bay - seems to be coming from the left hand side, maybe a pulley on the way out??? Im sure i have read something on previous thread on this subject so will have a gander later on..

    It is booked into the garage on friday and the rate the faults are accumulating it will be there a while:'(

    Chirping sounds like the Multi-V belt/tensioners - specifically the alernator pulley IIRC. Is it worse first thing in the morning when it's cold outside?

    I've posted a about about it - see if you can find my posts/threads. They brought out some modified parts (alternator pulley I'm pretty sure) which help - part numbers listed in my posts.
