Having problems with your 2004 Volkswagen Passat ?
I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car
\015 Every time i drive my car i hear what seems like a loud grinding noise that comes from the front wheels. Along with the noise my steering wheel shakes a little from left to right. I noticed that the noise has gradually gotten louder over a period of about 3 months. Also, when i drive strait or make a left turn, the noise is very loud, especially when making the left turn. However when i make a wide right turn, the noise seems to almost completely go away. Any ideas on what can be making this noise?\015
Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP
