Metalic noise from front end. Not bearing or CV
98 model. 156, 1.8ts.
I have noticed a bit of noise from what I thought were just noisy front pads, but it must be more than that. It's not a typical worn wheel bearing noise or the "clack clack" sound of worn CVs
Imagine a drum stick being rubbed around the top ofa drum symbil. Thats the sound I am hearing. I really heard it loud and clear while driving down a narrow street today with windows down and the sound bouncing back from the walls.
If I push in the clutch and just coast along, the sound stops. Breaking does not have an effect on the sound. I am not hearing it from the gearbox from inside the car but the fact that it stops when I press the clutch has me thinking it might have to do with the gearbox . Yikes!
