Question about Renault Sport
I have just driven my car, and noticed there is a terrible squeaking noise coming from my r/s/n wheel and driving felt a bit like the tracking is out and when i reached just under 60 mph it juddered and made a sort of knocking noise. At this point i felt like the wheel was loose and immediatly pulled over to check, however it wasnt that but looking through the alloy wheel it looks like a metel rod attached to the brake? or somewhere behind the wheel is snapped off at one end. I hope you are able to understand from my description what i mean and are able to give me some much needed advise. I have a renault megane, 1.6 16v T reg. Many thanks, Clare.
Not sure about the metal rod you are speaking of. If it was a tie rod end (which somewhat matches that description) that would cause you to be in an accident before you could ever stop the vehicle. It does however sound just like a CV joint at the wheel end of the drive axle. You do NOT want to drive again until you can have it checked by a mechanic. Ask him about buying an entire axle from an import salvage yard if you are having any income issues. It is possible to find perfectly good joints/axles at much reduced cost over new. They need to know what they are looking for in order for you to benefit though. I hope that helps. Timothy
