Steering/Braking noise..

Post by TheCoosTail » Sun Apr 29, 2018 10:58 am

I have a fairly loud noise that has developed in the last two days. It only occurs when I reverse out of my drive and I use/turn the steering wheel. I haven't determined if it's while I'm braking or steering however I suspect its while steering. Anybody else had this? I will be popping into my local dealership later this week to inform them of this. I will of course update all on here.

Hi, That is a problem noise that i have experienced several times while reversing, not just at start up but after driving several miles, only when reversing.
How did you get on at the dealers.

I used to get that on my previous car, it was related to rust on the brake disks, it rubbed different bits of the pads when I braked in reverse compared to forwards, so it always grated when reversed off the drive. That usually only happens with quite old disks, yours won't be nearly old or worn enough. I'd get it checked.

Had car for a couple of days and just noticed this morning a loud whine when turning onto the drive. I believe its the steering, so nothing to do with rusty brake disks as only had the car for 2 days. It was wet this morning so maybe that had something to do with it.

Whine on steering is sometimes because the wheel is on full lock against the stop.

I have a loud whale type noise when reversing into my driveway, says on another thread it's normal if auto handbrake is being used.

I have developed a whine when braking as well. My car is only a week old and has done 126 miles. I first heard it a couple of days after picking it up and thought it might just be the car bedding in. But now it is still happening. It is fine when the brakes are cold but when I drive for a while I start to hear it. When I initially touch the brakes it's fine but just before my car comes to a stop I heard a loud whine. It's definitely coming from the back brakes. Going to book an appointment next week at the dealers to get them to have a look at it.

I have a whine when pushing the brake in 1st gear. I’ve reported it to my dealer and managed to film it this evening and they say they will talk to the service team in the morning.

Not even had the car a week, hope it’s not a dud!

So I contacted my dealer who said they could book me in for next Thursday. Told them it wasn't good enough after paying £28000 for a new car so they said to bring it in and a mechanical would go out on a drive to see what was causing the noise. When we went out we didn't manage to hear the noise I was describing which is typical. When he went into the car he did a few emergency stops to as he described it clean the discs as they are coated when brand new and you need to get this coating off. I have only driven it to work and back since then but I can't hear the noise so maybe this has done the trick.

Mine is going back on Monday for them to check the whining brakes and also the front sensors as they also seem to be faulty 😞
