I'm back looking for more of your valuable input and hope you can help me out once again.
I have a rather loud screeching noise coming from my left front wheel whenever I back up. It varies in loudness at times but is always there. I don't hear it when the car is moving forward at all, just in reverse.
I'm due to get the brakes and rotors changed on the front and I'm hoping that will solve the issue but in the meantime, if anyone has any thoughts to share, I would appreciate it.
I have the very same issue, going foward all is well , going in reverse I hear a loud screeching not exactly sure where its comming from but i dont have to pump the breaks it hear it. I may have the U-Joint changed to see if perhaps thats it cause. If u figure out what it is please let me know. I will do the same.
I had this problem to I think could be different screeching sounds but at the bottom of my front rotor there was a thumb sized tab thing with a hole in the end and kit was bent just enough to hit the rotor and make a horrible screeching sound I just went underneath with a flat head and bent it back out a little ..... No pics but if you take a pic of it I'll tell you if it's the right thing
And yes, I spend a lot of time deleting useless posts... many of which are yours
how do the dealer's expect us to get the cars there if they don 't run at all?
I took mine in to the the garage and they found what was causing the issue for me. They said it was my "backing plate" rubbing. I don't know exactly what they did but they adjusted it and now the noise is gone and I'm a happy man.
By the way...no charge for this. I guess since I had the front brakes done the week before they figured they should have caught it then.
