    Just bought a mk3vr not long ago. When I'm turning right a squeaking noise comes from what sounds like the front wheel area!?

    any ideas?

    think I'll need new shocks soon aswell as these make kind of a squeaking rubbing noise from the rears when going over bumps at low speeds!

    erm my blower motor bearing is going and when i turn right that squeaks.

    Turn the blowers off then turn right if i dont make the noise then its your blower motor.

    Put some insulation tape around your drivers door striker (on 'b' pillar where door catches) and see if it goes!

    Have the same problem, thou the squeaking sounds like its comming from the passenger footwell, not the wheel. It could be the blower motor, but it still happens when i turn it off. Strange one? Getting p***** off driving with a mouse in the car!
