The 4WS light on the dashboard stays on? Mechanics checked underneath and say the chassis is ok. The outer CV boot is split - would this be the cause of the problem?

Yes that is a prob, cos your losing grease. That axle will need replacing. Possibilty of electrical switch/sensor is bad. Check your fuses!
Good luck.

I have a golf gti automatic. It makes a grinding when comming to stop and when frewheeling at low speed. i've checked brake pads and there fine


cv joint going bad, grease and boot may fix, probably caused by a cracked cv boot, and now the grease is gone, first thing to check is the boot on the cv joint (that's the shaft/joint that turns the wheels)attatches by a single nut in center of your front wheel (outer joint) if not the outer, then ck the inner (attatches to the transmission) (inner joint). most likely is the outer joint though

Your outer CV joint is blown. You need to replace this soon - if the joint fails, the car will not move.
