Haven't ever used a CD so far, only USB and radio.
It happens while braking as well and that to only when I slow down from 20kmph odd to standstill.
Will go to chevy mechanics this weekend and get it checked. I really hope its not a serious issue, so far it hasn't had an impact on anything.

Default Re: What's that sound ??

Hello friends, I am having a unique problem with my 2006 swift Zxi run 73k kms. After reaching speeds in excess of 60kph, there is a sound like the drone of an aeroplane from the rear side. Got it checked from MASS , they say it is normal & is due to tyres & they rotated the tyres , but the sound still persists. I don't buy the tyre logic as the tyres are michellin xm1+ with 10k run. Already had the wheel bearings changed some time back & even the MASS people are saying that the wheel bearings are fine & they have tested them individualy after lifting the car.
Now can someone help me with some inputs as to how to tackle the issue.

P.S. - The sound starts only after 60kph & then increases as the speed increases further & stops or is inaudible below 60kph.

Friends - I have a Scorpio SLX 7 seater. Can someone help me with this ? For the past 1 year there's a strange sound that comes when I turn my steering to the extreme right (or left) and am typically taking a U-turn or am reversing. I hear a sound as though I have grazed against something on the sides, or my car's underside has hit something. After a while I figured out its only happening when I turn (as mentioned earlier) and I have'nt grazed anything. I took it to a body shop (not a Scorpio service station) and the mechanic checked it out similarly and said he would need to check the vehicle by hoisting it and checking out the suspension etc. Since he said it would take 2 days I deferred it (4 months ago and counting !).

Any idea if this might be something to do with the front wheel suspension ? If so, what might be the issue and how much would it cost to repair ? And lastly does anyone in Chennai know any trusted auto repair shops (non-Scorpio service stations) where this can be done without any side effects ?

Thanks
Arun.

How many kms has your car done? If its more than 50k / the rubber boots are damaged, it may be worn out drive shafts around(applies only to front wheel drive). Not sure of the cost. INITIALLY you can drive around with no repairs, but as the wear increases, so does the slippage and you may lose power when u turn if your vehicle is front wheel drive.

I'm facing this exact issue in my Maruti Swift VXi (~40K KMs). Took it to the MASS and they had a look and said that the "capilary(?? What is this)" needs to be greased. They greased this part on both of the front tires. It was ok for a day but now again the same sound/noise is coming. This noise is acute when I take a U-Turn or a sharp left/right turn at low speed.

Any suggestions on this?

Btw, the MASS guys also said that this is a common problem in swift, Alto after it runs 30KM+ and that replacement will cost upwards of 6K!

Is this really the case?

I think they greased your brake calipers.

If the noise is acute on U turn or sharp turns (steering completely turned to one side), it might be ball joints or steering assembly. Can you describe the sound a little bit more?

Yes, it was brake calipers actually that he greased.

The noise is a screeching sound that comes when you apply brake or turn sharply ( you know the kind they show in the movies during car chase sequences )

This happens only in sharp turns or on inclines and at low gear. Maybe I don't realise this sound on other occasions.

Guys
For the last one week there is a peculiar sound coming from the wheels of my Vdi(69000kms). Its like dust inside the brakes but audible only after running for sometime. I went to two MASS's and they both cleaned the brakes but when I reach my home the sound comes back. It cannot be heard for sometime when I drive the car after a stop. So I could not replicate the same when I am at the ASC.
Pls Comment

If the sound is a booming one and increases with speed, may be the wheel bearing. Does it come from both sides? Do you get the sounds only when you brake? In this case its not the bearings.

There was this strange noise tonigt from my Fiesta. I was returning home from work, when I stepped out to open my gate I heard a slight keech keech noise coming from the car. I opened the gate, rolled down my windows took the car into the garage, there was no noise whatsoever. I parked the car and stepped out and when I closed the door, I heard a keech/kreech noise from underneath the body. I opened and closed all the 4 doors, heard the same sound.

I pushed the car sideways near the B-pillar, the car was swaying alright but there was no noise. I opened and closed the door again and the sound was there. I was really confused. I went to the boot and pushed it down, and there was this keech keech sound (a bit louder this time), but this sound lasted for about 5-8 seconds after I stopped pushing the boot. I did it again and the sound was there, again lasted for about 5-8 seconds. I am really confused, because this happened a month ago too, but disappeared the next morning. After that there was no noise. And now it has come again. Has anyone faced this issue in the Fiesta? What is the possible issue here?

Ok now the sound is coming everytime, it is from the right rear wheel. There are 2 types of sound, one is like a kleech sound, like something is loose. It occurs when I switch off the engine (when the car gives a slight jerk), and when I close the door (this happens very rarely though).

Next sound is strange, also from the right rear wheel, it happens every time. After I switch off the engine, this sound is there for about 2-8 seconds, depending on the duration of my drive. And it occurs when I press down the boot. It is like a see saw/swing sound, which goes back and forth.

Both the sounds are absent before I take the car out, only after I have driven for sometime I am able to hear it. Is the sound from the wheel or the suspension? Is there something loose, or is there any major issue here? Can I afford to ignore it.

Mines is a Swift VXi 2006. Every time I take a U Turn i get this feel that the tires are rubbing against the body of the car whereas in reality it isn't so. Its kind of a grinding noise. The noise is only present when the steering is in full lock right turn.
MASS is not able to diagnose. Help!

Hi prateek, Drive-shaft failure usually throws up a kat-kat noise. But still, I guess its worth checking.

Then I don't think this is a drive shaft issue. Something to do with the Steering column/damper?
