    Polo GTI 2011 Help??

    Please move if in the wrong place thanks

    Ok so I drove my polo GTI Monday & Tuesday & last week (Seemed all ok)

    Today when I drove it, there was a clunking sound (When driving) (Right front wheel) got louder the faster I drove,

    Looked at the Tyre & it seemed really low & the alloy wheel looked like it was pressing on tyre at the bottom.

    All the other tyres looked fine with no funny noise from them

    Is it a puncher?? Or something worse? No warning lights came on & the front right was always lower than the rest when did tyre pressure.

    I am only 1 mins in the car (Bottom of my road) garage & tyre place.

    Any help will be appricated thanks 😊

    It would seem that you have experienced your first tyre puncture indeed.
    Do not drive on the flat tyre as the wheel will become damaged and the the tyre also may become damaged beyond repair.
    Try to get some air into it if it will hold - a slow puncture will allow you to get to a tyre shop, otherwise put the spare on if you have one. Final recourse get the AA, RAC or whoever to assist. Good luck!

    Thanks mate tyre shop is only just down the road so not far only like 1 min...

    Checked tyre few mins ago and it looked way lower than the others so hopefully it's only a Puncture..

    I regularly check the tyre pressure and the warning light didn't come on at all, I drove it to Cineworld on Tuesday car seemed fine. I didn't drive over anything bumps/hit anything

    So you can say quite confidently that you did not drive over a number 5 3/4" wood screw during your journey? I wish my eyes were that good.... Punctures are as old as Mr Dunlop's pneumatic tyre.......

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
