Bad Noise From The Car, Please Help by mutiply: 8:20pm On May 17, 2019
There is bad noise that comes out when driving, especially on pot holes, like two metals hitting each other.

At first I taught it was the exhaust, but the rubbers are intact.

Two mechanics said it was the shock absorber at the back, bought a new one only for the bad noise to continue after changing the shocks. I'm so sad right now, can't even think straight.

Please help, can a scan of the car reveal this damage?
the noise is so embarrassing. They all claim everything underneath the car is fine.

Go and buy new original brake pad. Change it and tell the mechanic to check the ball joint too.

Thank me once it's done. Might sound somehow to you but endeavour to change the break pads first.

I once experience same and it was breakpad

Not unless it's scanned by the holy spirit........ You need to have your vehicle on a proper ramp, and conduct a thorough investigation underneath.............

Since it’s coming from the back you need to pack your bushings with extra rubber just fixed mine that way

Tell the mechanic to check the bushings and at the front check the linkage whether it is still good. I guess you just started driving if not you should be able to differentiate what is giving off the sound.

if your area is waterlogged and you have rear brake drums and you recently changed it, let the mechanic check that too fake brake shoes with water injested when hit would bind and cause that sound.

so now
continuous metal clinging sound on smooth road and faint when speed increases point to the rear drum brakes

Metal clinging sound only audible on very bad roads especially when you enter port holes or on a strip that is up and down driving then it definitely is your linkage Infront

Now metal sound that is most visible on uneven surface not only potholes but roads that are rough, passing through a divider gap on a bridge, becomes very worse when you pass a interlocked road that is not smooth then it's definitely bushings that need replacement

in all your problem can't be diagnosed online a physical inspection and driving can only pinpoint to the right direction

Get a Mechanic to take off your wheels and check everything there, linkage, bushings, arms your brakes, especially the shoes, pads etc.


I've had this experience in the past. Also went chasing silencer to no avail. The sound was coming from the wheels. The handbrake shoes were rattling.

the nasty noise is coming from the back tyres (right hand of the driver). Can the above affect it? Thanks.
