Cool, I thought as much, but i was a lil worried though.

Sorry about the wrong info regarding you issue Spadival.

@Samurai: I doubt this is the same front lower arm issue. Sound seems to be directly coming from the steering column and it judders in my hand. confusin

But my Baleno doesnt have motorised radio antenna !!
@spadival - that is the sound from the fuel pump. Ideally you should crank after the sound dies which takes 2-3 seconds.

edit: saw the post from mclaren a little late.

@crazydiablo - the sound is no doubt very irritating, but are you sure it judders in your hand?

Yes it feels like that. I cannot replicate it always, which is an issue when i take it to the workshop. Now that you asked, I will check once again.

@crazydiablo - if you want to replicate the sound then you have to hit a pothole while steering. it wont come if you hit the pothole keeping the wheels straight. At least it works in my case.

Thats common. Since excess load is put on your engine the revs rise.
500 rpm increase, with A/C on... now thats strange!

Likewise. I'm not sure about this and maybe it is just coincidence, but it happens when I've turned left completely and I go over something nasty.

Occassionally, I face a problem with the response feeling a little sluggish. And this is NOT soon after a cold bangalore morning start, which is when it is usually very smooth. Then 25min later (after it feels sluggish), after a couple of engine cuts at signals, it begins to feel smooth again. And then there are other days when it just feels smooth as silk. I usually fill the higher octane option.

Exactly the same issue with my Baleno too & whenever I take it to the mechanic the sound simply vanishes.

Took my car for a drive today early in the morning and no signs of this so called cranking/clanking noise from the steering wheel. Hit a few pot-holes and no use .

I went thru my service records and I had the same noise issue during my 10k service.

I remember that I told the service advisor and he commended replacing some bracket (?) and it costed about 600/- bucks. The cranking noise had ceased after the service and has only cropped up a few days back.

The chaps handwriting was so bad, that I really couldn't figure out from the job card what was done. I lost the bill though.

If you guys can hold on till this weekend, will head down to my service center and find out what the replaced part was.


edit : If possible please merge threads with this one .

Guys.. don't self destruct ur car's shocks trying to replicate the "problem". As far as I am concerned, I don't feel its much of a problem at all.

spadival there'z no way on sweet earth would I try to replicate the problem to an extent where it would damage the suspension or something on the same lines .

Like you said it ain't much of a problem, but then these small niggles bother me a lot.

Riju, waiting for you inputs after you check with the service center. Dont like to live with problems unless they cannot be redeemed easily.
