Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6
Hoping you guys can help?
When travelling on a slightly rough road or speed humps (especially a cobble stone road), i get a loud rattling noise like a loose bolt or similar.
After experementing a little, i have found that if i slightly leave my foot on the brake or when braking normally, this noise tends to stop.
I have taken to my mechanic & got the pads glued on, as it was suggested by someone that it might be it. But still noise seems to be there & getting worse by the week... Of course i might be completely wrong, it might not even be my brakes, I have honestly ran out of ideas.
Any help would be appreciated,
Matt, sounds like a suspension or exhaust noise. Grab onto exhaust (engine cold) at several locations (car supported securely so u don't get crushed) and wiggle, tug pull, kick, etc to see if u can get it to make any noise from hitting anything. Look for evidence of the exhaust rubbing against something, by looking for shiny metal due to contact w/ something. Also push up and down on the body of the car as violently as possible to simulate going over bumps. Pay close attention to heat shields around or on the exhaust system, if they are loose, they will make a racket.
And, as I said, possibly the suspension is making the noise, but not as likely, pushing up and down on the car body as described above might reproduce the noise. If it isn't the exhaust (my 1st choice), give me more clues if u can. good luck countrycurt0
