Hi there,

Not being 100% positive but pretty damn sure, the noise is a by-product of the severe cold effecting the grease in the cv-joints. Grease, like oil, gets thick when really cold, that's definitely going to give you some noise when turning.

Thanks

My altezza has a squeaking sound coming from the right front shock area. what is it?


I would suggest you check your brakes. Jack up & block the vehicle and remove the tire. Keep an eye out for any evidence of worn or rubbing parts. Look between the pads and the disk for rocks (can cause squeaks.) Also check to see if the pads are worn down to the "squeal inindicator" If none of these are the problem, then it's likely you have a bad bearing. Unless you have the correct tools, you will probably have to take it to a pro.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

Grating soung coming the front wheel


is it like a growling noise, or a metallic "metal on metal" noise, is it clicking? when do you hear it? Common for wheel bearings to go out on those in my experience. usually you can narrow it to a wheel bearing if when you sway the car, you hear a growling noise towards the heavy end of the car, meaning if you turn to the left, causing the car to naturally sway right, the right hand tire front or rear starts making noise, thats usually a wheel bearing. If its a clicking noise while cornering and especially when corning with acceleration, thats usually a CV axle. if its a metal on metal noise, that can be a brake pad worn to low, or even just a simple backing plate to the brake rotor touching and rubbing the rotor.

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

Deep grinding noise coming from front driverside wheel


could be a rock stuck between the brake rotor and calipers or dust sheild...on the other hand could be badly worn brake pads wearing metal in metal.....maybe even worn wheel bearings. when was your last brake inspection(worn brakes)? have you been driving on gravel roads(possible rock)? how long has this noise been occurring for(progressivly getting louder?-does braking effect if(worn brakes)? is it louder when cornering hard-and will it go away when turning the opposite direction (wheel bearings)??

When pressing in on the clutch and sometimes when cornering I hear a scaching sound coming from Rt. front of car. Kinda like a loose cable rubbing against metal. Otherwise the car drives fine, any ideas?


Start with inspecting the brakes. Then the CV boots. After that it's a free for all. Inpect everything. Bearings, suspension parts, brake hoses, clutch cable. Better to remove wheel and turn wheels all the way left and right. If you can check with engine running and spinning hubs, even better.

Car is squealing persistently from rear right tire


Pull the wheel,you will find that the brake pad,or after pulling the drum,the shoes are in bad shpe,if not ,check the wheel bearing,but my bet is the shoes,or pads are bad,do A brake job,it will most likely be the problem.

Funny noise/squeal from LH wheel area on turning RH bends


Check your brakes for excessive wear or uneven wear. There are metal objects attached to the brake pads, that when worn they touch the rotors creating a metal squealing sound. This serves as a warning to prevent additional damage to your braking system, replace if pads are worn. If this isn't the case, if 4WD have your shafts, hubs bearings checked, if 2WD have your wheel bearings checked. Hopefully this helps
