    I have a Pug 106 1.1 Zest 3 - R plate, 60k on the clock

    Its been having knocking noise when i turn left, which i was planning
    on taking to the grarge to get looked at, assuming it was the bearing?

    however, tonight i was going out, felt fine....then hit the motorway
    and felt as if the car was swaying, like the back right wheel was
    gonna fall off.

    Feels ok when i turn left, but turning right its like im skidding and
    steering feels really light?

    Any suggestions guys on what it might be, before the local mechanic
    charges me an arm and a leg???

  2. This was experience not knowledge, but it may help. I had the same swaying
    problem on the motorway years ago with a Cortina estate car. The problem
    was caused by badly balanced rear wheel(s), probably due to a weight falling
    off, but it could only be cured by balancing the wheels while they were
    still on the car. Balancing on the machine in the normal way did not solve

    Are you sure the new problem was from the back? A friend had a dodgy CV
    joint on his 205 a couple of years back. He was going to work, ignoring
    the knocking noise when he noticed the steering wheel twitching [1] in
    his hand as the cv joint failed to cv properly. When he went to pull
    away after work the engine revved and no forward progress was made. A
    look under the bonnet revealed the inboard end of the driveshaft
    spinning but not the outer end.

    {1] he described it as almost a quarter turn of the steering wheel under
    sharp corners.
