Rubbing noise on full lock
« on: 01 August 2016, 19:21 »
Hi guys,

I've noticed a very feint rubbing noise when my steering is on full lock to the right - forwards and in reverse. It's not a grinding noise just a feint rubbing noise, almost sounds like a hissing sound but it's not gas escaping - hard to describe. Don't seem to have the same sound when full lock to the left and I checked around the right wheel well and nothing is touching the tyre.

Seems to move fine but just the noise is a little unsettling. Has anyone else noticed the same thing on their GTI?  Mine is a 2011 model and has said stock suspension.

Any thoughts or similar experiences?
