172 funny noise

when i turn the steering wheel to the right, i get this high pitched kind of rubbing noise. Can happen on full lock or just just round a roundabout - and its not doing it all the time, or when turning left.

Apparently the top mount bearings need changing - this likely to be it?

That was a fault on some 172s when pulling away on full lock.

Renault modify the strut tops its been done to mine.They dont make a very neat job it when i put my strutbrace on i took the shocker tops off and seen that the metal work had been ground away they never even treated the metal it was bare

My brakes do that when i turn right.... does it sound like a brake noise??

How long have you had a 172 f**k trumpet?? Colour?

I had the same thing on my old pug, I was told it was a caliper i think? I could be wrong, Im getting forgetful in my old age, and this was a couple of years back....
