The brake backing plate may have got bent over into the brake rotor while they worked on it. It is just a thin piece of metal that bends easily.

Whining noises are always caused by worn wheel bearing. Springs don't make a noise, apart from sometimes the odd squeak.

They probably had to remove the wheel hub to put the spring on the strut. When they put it back together they didn't carry on tightening the wheel hub nut until the wheel pinched up tight and the wheel locks up. Then you back off the nut, and tighten to the correct torque, or back off a quarter turn whatever the manual states. That way you know the bearing is fully seated. Yours wasn't and now the bearing is worn, pitted and chipped. I went through two sets on a Datsun 180SSS back in the 70s until the guy in the auto-supply shop gave me that tip. Make a deal with the garage, you will buy the bearings and they fit for free. Tell them I told you where they went wrong, and ask if it was an apprentice working on your vehicle?

SOURCE: loud whining noise sometimes after driving for a

Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.

Would recommend having the front struts and strut mounts looked at, over time the struts and strut mounts wear out, causing the front supension to develop noise whe going over even the slightest of road deformities. Hope this helps

Just bought a ford ba wagon and when you do a hard turn like driving in your driveway or turning in a street it makes a loud creaking noise coming for the front


check the strut or top strut bearing for failure
the creaking noise can be from the spring being wound up from turning as the bearing has seized
have it inspected by a specialist suspension shop

Loud noise when power steering is on full lock Kia Sedona 2004


There may be 2 possible causes for this problem. THe first may be cv koints failing or excessive turn angle of the wheel which would be binding up the cv joint. This can be checked by a wheel aligner testing the maximum turn allowed at the wheels.. The second is that power steering pumps should never be operated at tight full turn. To umnderstand this consider this. Power steering pumps are only under load when you move the steering wheel ans if you turn a bit the pump moves the wheels and then the pressure is let off until you move the wheel again. You have to move the wheel to shut off a valve in the box that allows the pump to build up pressure. When you hold the wheel hard against the stops at full turn you are making the pump work at maximum pressure and if you continue to do this you can expect premature pump failure. Jusat turn until you hit the stops then ease off a fraction. The noise I expect is the pressure relief valve in the pump is releasing rapidly and it probably sounds like a hammer hitting something metalic. Try the alignment and try not holding the turn hard at hard full turn. Haveing the pump pressure checked might also point to a fault

Have a jaguar diesel with 63 000 miles on it . turbo whine been noticed


Some whine is not really a problem and is not worth the cost to replace the turbo. You have more than likely heard trucks with turbo whine and they don't worry about it. If the whine is really loud then the turbo has a worn bearing and it will need to be replaced in the near future or it will seize up eventually.

Loud whining upon startup, especially when cold. Thought it was in power steering since it's very loud when turning the steering wheel. Had steering checked out; he assured me power steering was...


I would try changing the belt. It may be dry and cracked. It will cause whining/squealing sounds. It also will get tension when the steering is turned. It could still be the compressor bearings. The pulley on the compressor still turns when the compressor is off it just don't engage. but i would not change the compressor first.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.
