Default Bolero Wheel problem

Hello Friends,
I am hearing clicking noises the left wheel when the steering wheel of my Bolero is fully locked to the left. No problems when the vehicle is moving straight and around small bends. Any idea?

Seems like outer CV joint of the drive shaft. Get both, left and right, checked.

Sometimes when the tyrers are changed(from stock tyre to one available in the market) and when you do a full turn, inside of the tyre might be touching the components

Adrian,
Could you put up some more details, Tyre size, are alloys used (with lot of -ve offset)?

Did the issue crop up all of a sudden? or after a type / alloy upgrade?

Please get your power steering belt checked. Lock to lock noise that should be the problem.

@pankaj- Bolero is a rear wheel drive vehicle. Hence drive shaft on each end do not exist.

Hey thanks for the insight. Guess I was too sleepy to think after a heavy lunch.

A belt problem would give a loud squeal. I had this problem once.This is clicking noise. Could it be a bad valve or bearing in the power steering pump?

You are right about long squel. Please get it checked at workshop. Only personal inspection can source this problem.
