Recommended Posts

Hello,

Can anyone help me on this. I get a rubbing noise when I turn left. The noise doesnt happen when I turn right or when manouvering slowly. It sounds like a light metal on metal sound. I had a look at the wheels and the wheel arches but can t see anything worn.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Did you by any chance have the back brake discs replaced.

The MOT did mention the bottom ball joints so they may need changing. It sounds like its coming from the back though.

I found ball joints for £32 + VAT but thats without the arm. Does the arm have to be changed?

The backing plate on the drivers side rear disc is loose to so ill check that first.

Thanks for your help guys

Funny I have had this problem for about a year now......... Very anoying especially when on smooth ground as it's more apparent

Numerous visits to diffrent mechanics and none of them have been able to find a cause its recently passed its M.O.T with no mention of any problems however they did mention the discs were a bit warped and would need replacing soon. Weather this is related i'm not sure

Parf if you get to the bottom of this could you keep us updated

Thanks

well i think you would be better off to get the arm too.

and what is your reasoning behind that statement? unless the arm is damaged somehow there is no need to replace it. In comparison its like saying well the tyre is worn so i will replace the alloy wheel also

I agree with Rob if the bottom balljoint is the same setup as the GS300. The balljoint is bolted to the bottom of the hub and then connected to the arm via the balljoint on the GS, if it is the same on the IS then there is nothing to be gained from changing the arm.

But i still nedd to get them replaced monday.

Sorry for saying you need to change the arm

A motor factors in Swansea call Normag quoted me £32 + VAT for the ball joints. They said they could get them next day too from a jap parts specialist.

Do you need a special tool to press them in and out.

Ill get the ball joints changed and try to secure the brake disc guard and let you know if it goes away.

The odd thing is it sounds like its coming from the back but only happens when i turn left so im well confused.
