    Default Rubbing noise

    While i'm moving on full lock i keep getting a rubbing noise from the driver side wheel.

    Doing a u-turn in a side street with the window open i noticed it so went round again and it done the same thing.

    I can't really describe it but it's only when on full lock

    If you are running bigger than standard wheels it could be the tyres hitting the inner arch covers,check them anyway as one of the clips holding up the plastic inner may have broke and caused it to drop and is hitting the tyre?

    The car is on standard VX sri alloys and it does sound like a rubbery-ish noise

    Dont know what else it could be mate best to put on full lock tomoz and have a feel round the wheel and see if you can find any thing or jack up the car take the wheel off and if it has been rubbing on something u should be able to see rub marks on it.

    Splash loads of talc inside the arch and give it a go, any rubbing will show easily then.
