Clicking from full lock on fronts

Noticed this week that when i reverse with full lock on or move forward with full lock on, when I realise it from full lock i'm now getting clicking coming from the front of the car. Its a pretty noticeable noise, quiet loud. Any idea what it might be? I might take it to the dealers if its a serious issue.

Anyone else get this?

This is on a Type-R. 58plate

The wheels are going to fall off - beware.

There was a lock issue on the EP3's. I think there may have been a recall for this - not so sure it's a common issue with the FN2.

Are you lowered at all?

Take it to the dealers; the car must be in warranty still - most Type-R's are, unless you've got one of the first ones that were released.

Mine has started doing in the last few weeks. It seems to happen when I have full lock on and reverse into the garage, going over a small step at the entrance of the garage and sometimes at slow speed going forwards on full lock. Noticed it clicked also when I applied brakes and the car came to a stop, but it's only done this once or twice. It's only one click though then silence.

Been looking through the numerous threads and it I think it might be the front subframe. Booked in next week for it's 2nd service so will get them to look at then.
