Are your lugs torqued properly?Moved from Mkiv forums
Just picked up a mkiv jetta here recently and am having some issues with it already . Car is Bagged btw ( deleted sway bars in front )
So here is the story i went on a 30 mile drive to JFK airport . On the way there car was running smooth and great, There were a couple bumps and minor potholes on the way but nothing too serious. Now on the way back i was having problems. Start of the drive the car was acting up as i was switching lanes was hearing what sounded like a rubbing noise on the front driver side which then changed to a metal on metal scratching noise. So when i finally got home i put it off until this morning i went to check it out and as i was reversing out of a parking spot and letting it roll in reverse when i heard it hitting hard on something metal. The wheel was turned all the way and so i got of the car and the inner lip of the wheel is hitting the strut. Now as im driving when Im turning the wheel to the right its hitting comnstantly.
Question is what happened? Did i throw off the alignment because of some bumps and such it never did this before and would a 10mm spacer and an aligment help to stop this ? could these be warped brake pads?
Thanks for your help it is greatly appreciated.
