    loud noise when reversing and turning

    Ok...this has happened for a while

    but when i turn, in reverse (like backing into a spot), sometimes the car maks a weird grinding noise, and feel it in the steering wheel too. Its gotten slightly worse over time, but if i do the same turn again, it may not do it. I think something is rubbing, but what? IT feels like metal, but could it be the tires?


    Also...my steering is quite loose. Not that its bad...but its just no where near as tight as the 98 MC i testdrove. What could that be?

    did you check if you ran over something? like a little kid on a bike or an old lady? that could be the answer to your problems

    Check the bolts that hold the calipers in place. If one of them is loose, it will come out of place in reverse and cause the pads to grind against the rotor, making a nasty grinding noice that you'll be able to feel in the steering.

    As for the steering, well, these cars don't exactly turn on a dime, but I'd check to see if the power steering pump might be leaking/low on fluid.
    your going to find yourselves running...running from those werewolves in space.

    PS was low...but not leaking as far as I can see. When i filled it up...didnt do much either. It may just be that variable effort sterring, i didnnt know if it was supposed to be this loose though..

    Ill check all the bolts on the calipers. Im due for breaks soo too...the rear shakes more than J. Los.

    The fender liner was loose once, i poped it back into place. there is a spot thats been worn down....but this really sounds like metal, not plastic. Well, it sounds more solid, ill say that

    I've had the same problem with my Z34 for a while now. It makes a rubbing noise when you reverse sometimes. :? I don't have any idea what it could be, but I'm sure any help would be greatly appreciated for me and godofthunder.

    it has happened once going foward...slow.

    It only seems to do it when im going slow, reverse, and a tight angle.

    How much is a CV joint usually? and the labor? Any way i can test?

    I wouldnt worry about it too much. Mine every now and then makes a noise. Just drive it til it breaks. I dont know how much labor or parts is. Ive never had to change one

    i had a grinding noise in reverse so i stopped the car after going backwars and the bottom bolt of the caliper mount had come off and the caliper was flipping up and grinding against the inside of the wheel.

    definitely not an "i wouldnt worry about it too much" problem

    Well, in that case yeah, its something to worry about. If you check everything and it all looks good, THEN I wouldnt worry about it too much. I just assume when people hear a noise they check stuff out first

    i have a noise sometimes too when i back up, but it's not really a grinding it's more of a groan. doesn't happen very often tho. i assume it has to do with the rear brakes (94+) but my rear brakes appear to be fine :?:
