When I turn to full lock on my A4, I get this horrendose screeching like sound, bit like a bad fan belt sound.

Is there any quick fix to this ? People stop and look when on car parks !

I'm guessing you have a 1.9TDI.

It sounds like the bearing on your alternator pulley - very common problem. If you stand from the front and look in your engine bay, it's just to the left of your passenger side headlight. I used to find that a bit of WD40 would stop it for a bit, but it's a common failure and needs replacing soon. About £80 for parts (I believe) and 1hr labour if your local garage knows what they're doing!

Exactly what benjie said. Also try not to dry steer and bring it up away from idle when full locking and it doesn't make it sound so bad. But the clutch unit on alternator pulley is a gonner
