When I do a sharp left turn (like in runabouts or hairpin turns) I hear a rumbling noise (a grumbling sound, often also like rubber rubbing against metal) from the front of my car, also I can feel a shaking.
- This only happens when doing a sharp left turn. When driving straight, long stretched left turns or right sharp turns there are no unusual sounds.
- I need to have a certain minimum velocity for the noise to happen, I think (unsure) that I need to have torque on the wheels.
- There are no suspicious noises when steering at the extreme left on a stationary vehicle.
- The sound/shaking happens during the entire left turn (provided I keep steering sharply and maintain speed), not only on the beginning/end.
- I tried to check the suspension. A first rough check did not reveal something unusual. There is no feel-able play on the joints.
- On the CV Joints there is also no feel-able play and the rubber boots are intact.
I made a video, the rumbling happens at 00:05. Since the roundabout is a bit larger I could not perform a very sharp turn. The noise happens only once when I was oversteering to reproduce the noise.
Some informations about the car
It is a 2009 Opel Astra H Caravan with about 150 KKm. It is a FWD, manual transmission. I also have a illustration of the suspension.
I am inclined to suspect the CV Joint of the left side, perhaps somebody could point out other candidates or checks?
