2.0? Probably a really bad CV joint. It starts as clicking when you turn the wheel to the side. Then it gets worse. Then the joint gets really bad and grinds and pops. It's not safe to drive on a CV joint that is far gone.
It could be a suspension bushing or loose component, if you had the car recently worked on it's a possibility.
You should really do some more testing and get it checked out before driving any further. If something is broken, grinding, and "LOUD", then please have it checked out by a professional mechanic before driving.
CV joint is a possibility, I doubt it's the brakes but it's possible. Something to do with suspension, maybe a broken component. Loud grinding noises aren't bushings.
Just found out...neighbor who works at service dept of local VW dealership found the problem...Broken Tire rod end on passanger side...maybe even the tire rod..
Where it screws on, it doesn't screw on...the tire is not attached to the end...Not I'm praying that the tire rod isn't messed up too..Wheel doesn't turn when steering wheel is turned...WOW...very lucky I wasn't on freeway..
Tie rod end. This is the thing that moves the wheel left and right. There's an outer tie rod end that is attached to the wheel hub and an inner tie rod end that is attached to the steering rack, the thing that moves the tie rod end. If t's not attached, that means the wheel was just freewheeling? Wow.
