strange noise when doing tight u turns and big right hand turns

Recommended Posts

gday guys/girls,

every now and then my rolla makes a strange noise when i either do a big right hand turn at medium speed or a tight u-turn at normal speed,usually the u-turn is nearly done at full lock. has anyone here noticed a similar problem like this,if so, can u tell me what caused the noise and how was it fixed?? the noise does not happen all the time when doing a u-turn or big right hand turn just every now and then,this makes it hard to take it back to toyota and get it repaired or looked at as it may not make the noise there.

merry xmas and a happy 2006.

all the best,

What kind of noise is it?

its sounds like a whistling type of noise. my first thought was something with power steering,but steering feels normal. a grinding noise would indicate frozen brake calipers 9/10 times.

you sure its not your power steering pump or CV joints?

starting to think it may be related to one of the two. warranty job either way. would be better if noise was there all the time so i could get it in to toyota and they could get to the bottom of the problem.

all the best,
