159 'noise' question,
Well like us all now ive had the car a certain while and gotten used to it I have some very minor worries and wondered if any of you people have an answer or two.
When starting from cold im getting a 'loose tappit' type sound from the engine. Not the usual diesel kock but a mettalic ticking type sound. Like tappits of old it goes away once the engine is warm, any ideas?
When I have weight in the back, like passengers for example and i go over a speed hump or turn sharply I get a short lived rubbing sound from the back end, just a soft 'crunch' sound. Sounds like the wheel rubbing in the arch. I have OEM 18s on so a possibility its them?
Alarm, too sensitive, poor neighbours, if a truck goes by even the draft off the passing truck rocks the car enough and the alarm goes. Usually at 3 am of course. Having to disable it every night lately.
Dont get me wrong, I think the car is great but these are a couple mildly annoying things.
