    Hey all

    So when I first get in the car in the morning I get a knocking noise from the front offside when going forward on full left hand lock. It seems to go away once the car has been driven for a few minutes.

    Now some of you may remember that I had an MOT fail for a torn CV gaitor a while back and I'm wondering if that's related. Thing is I think the gaitor with the hole in it was on the near side.

    Anyway, is there anything else it could be and is there any way to check the CV joints?

    Fritz

    Grab and twist. Check for free play or knocks.

    You're lucky it doesn't vibrate, as all the cheap shafts I've tried on the FL1 vibrate horribly.
