Fw: [V6-12v] Steering noise

Lino, I also have the same: turning right at about three-quarters lock at
low speed and I always get a grouching/groaning noise - very specific to the
amount of lock that I put on though.  I haven't had the chance to explore
the cause any further, but in my mind I had put it down to a cv joint.

Interestingly, however, over the weekend I have also just started to detect
the beginnings of a rumbling wheel bearing at speed too, so maybe it's
connected with that too.

Any suggestions greatfully received...
