laguna steering noise

Post by alfonzo » 03 Feb 2005, 20:30

hello, ive got a 97 2.0 laguna. recently it has been making a grinding noise when turning left when the accelerator is pressed down. if i turn left with no gas then there is no noise and if i turn right there no noise also. Think it could be the drive shaft but upon inspection there seems to be no wear or tear. any help would be appreciated. cheers.

Grinding or rumbling under power (gas) usually points to a driveshaft problem. However also have a quick look to see if anyting is fouling the steering rack and/or the condition of the belt on the PS pump.
Personally I would say probably a CV joint - have you tried to see if tehre is any wear when the wheels are not under load (ie jacked up?) You dont have to have a split gaiter to have a toasted CV!
