if it only occures when turning it may be a ball joint running dry - they are lubricated for life so will need changing. Had this problem on my 16v - new balljoint =problem solved

get some gloss finished mags like sunday suppliments and place under front tyres. use them as a turn table whilst stationary. now get someone to turn steering whilst you peer under car. this should pinpoint noise.(y)
