I've had some like that before.
My problem was the locking bolt of the wheelbearing/cv joint.

200nm + 180 degrees
3/4" socket set or a scaffolding pole (free from any building site).
Sorry chaps, much as our 2k looks nice, I prefer my Mk2. ;)

I can understand how you must feel Caddyluv, hope you can get it sorted. I should not say this but my 4 has just turned 47k miles, no dash interior rattles, not lowere tho.

In the last photo is there supposed to be what looks like a jagged type split in above where the bolt is?
