Noise when turning left!!!

I recently noticed a noise coming from the my (96 P Cinq S), the noise only happens when I am turning alot left i.e. going round a circle, or sharp bend.

Any suggestions??

Cheers

is it a knocking noise, my Uno did that when it went round bends and round abouts, it was the cv joints or something, I never got them looked at cause i crashed the car


Wanted Seicento Arbarth Wheels or any 14"+ to fit a seicento

It is hard to explain, a sort of tut-tut-tut-tut noise :D
It is definitely only when turning left.

I have a similar phenomenon when turning right - the front brakes appear to squeal in right handers... any ideas?

Cinqmeister, strip, check, clean and copper slip the back of the brake pads for the squealy noise.

Baz, Gaz could be right, may be the driveshaft joints.

dunno bout you baz, but cinqmeister, my old punto did exactly the same as yours...apparently it's something on the brake set up (a clip or summat)..can't remember what...someone had this prob in auto express ages ago...shall try and find it.

the descent into insanity continues unabated
