    Default Strange sound !!!!!!!!!! Plz help

    Hi, i have a 2004 vectra 2.0t sri, and there's a strange sound from the wheel i think. When the car is stationary and ignition switched off, if i turn the steering clockwise a few inches it make a dong dong noise, same if i turn it the other way, so it can't be the powersteering fluid can it?, dn't they have a sensor. And when the car is started and i do the turning steering wheel scenario i can still hear the same sound, i can even hear the sound when driving and turning sometimes, sometimes i can't hear it. The m.o.t tester checked the springs and said they seem fine?, if it is the springs, are there any better ones that i can get, and can i also buy them second hand.

    I will really appreciate some1's help, because i really like the car, but i hate that sound, apart from that it feels solid.

    Thanks, i looking forward to hearing to youre replies.

    I was going to say "check the springs" but that takes out my first option...the only other thing that it could be that I think off are the CV joints.

    I had the same with my car,felt like a spring donging every time i turned wheel could feel it through steering wheel as well.Took my shock and spring off and it turned out to be the top strut bearing the inner ring was cracked and bearings were knackered.Best way to check is to put your hands up in the arches and feel the top of your strut,get a mate to wiggle steering left to right and see if you can feel it at the top
    If you want part numbers i will sort it out for you think it was about £18 for bearing

    My 2.0 T was exactly the same. Was the top strut bearings.

    Replaced and fixed the dong...so to speak.

    I used to get a "Boing" when turning sometimes, thought it needed the spring seat mod but had it checked and they were already fitted. Had an advisory on steering arm at the MOT, got it replaced and haven't heard a Boing since.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    Had this on our Fiat Ducato Van. So not just a Vectra anomaly!!

    Our workshop says that regularly going up non-drop kerbs is the most likely cause. And the harder the suspension, the more likely it is to happen!! As we have to go up a shallow non drop kerb at least 3 times a day, they are possibly right!!
