    Default Strange Noise

    Hi

    Had this problem on and off for a while now but this is the first time Ive heard it, wifes has complained about it for a while.

    The last time we took it to our local garage who thought it sounded like a brake noise, we had pads and discs changed and it went silent for a while. Its hard to describe but its like a squeaking, if comes on generally at low speeds and it seems to come on when the steering wheel is turned, it cant be anything dangerous as it passed the MOT in May, once the snapped suspension spring was fixed lol

    The noise I think is coming from the front passenger side

    Anyone have any advice on this?

    Sounds like the bottom ball joint heatshield touching the back of the brake disc. The disc will just be touching it and no more

    I had similar a while ago - when going into/out of parking spaces mainly it sounded more like I was driving a tank with rusty tracks !

    I eventually traced it down to the tiny plate metal shields as mentioned, between the lowest pivot on the steering and the inner face of the front disc. When I eased the offside one away from the disc a handful of stones fell out. So with a sturdy long screwdriver, I eased both OS and NS shields away from the respective discs ..... nice and quiet since and that's about a year later.
