My V280 has developed an expensive sounding knocking sound when pulling away. It sounds like it is comming from the wheel or drive shafts although its hard to tell for sure. The problem seems to disapear at around 25mph. Any ideas or pointers would be great.

Hi,280
A good test is to drive it backwards on hard lock in both directions, any noise or feelings on the steering wheel and it is the outer CV joints.

Car just came back from the garage and indeed it was a CV joint break down causing the horrid grinding and knocking. £127 all in. Thanks Ian, spot on. [:)]
