Grinding noise during left turns.


Recommended Posts

Hi, lately I've noticed some noise whenever I make a left turn. Don't know if that was present before I installed the PSE but then again I didn't use to drive around with my windows down before the mod ;-)

To me it doesn't sound like vibration or rattle but rather like some grinding noise. So far by just looking under the car without lifting it up I couldn't see anything that would likely produce such noise. Any ideas? I could live with it coming from the exhaust but if there was really loose I will of course have it fixed.

Thanks,

Thorsten

My neighbor had a similar issue, it was both the fact that the rear brake pads were worn to the numbs, and hat the rear left half shaft hub bolt was loose.

Thanks OE for pointing me to the brakes. Had the rear right wheel of and found the metal plate that is protecting the inner side of the disc was quite close to the disc. Found some marks on the inner side of the brake disc to that would indicate that the sheet metal would touch it sometimes. After a little bending to enlarge the gap the noise was gone on the last two drives. Still have to to see if this is permanent since I've been tricked by the ghost that lives inside my car before. Especially when it comes to fixing rattles...

Two weeks ago I ran over some piece of soil on the autobahn which hit hard under the rear right fender. I found no damage when I inspected the car after that but maybe that was when the grinding noise started. Not sure though how it could get inside the wheel to hit the brake assembly.
