My car has developed a noise coming from the rear of the car, although the car drives okay stops okay, no vibration on the steering wheel, a garage thought it could be the brake discs rubbing, someone else mentioned the Diff or Drive shaft, i was wondering if anyone else may have had a similar problem or noise from the rear.

Thanks.

I would suggest you check the rear brakes first as this is probably the most likely cause.

Steering vibration would be an issue if your front brakes needed attention.

Kev

You can do a couple of checks yourself that would probably identify a problem with the brakes. Usually where there is issue, the brake discs will warm up significantly and disproportionately to their use. Check this after a journey but be careful as these discs can get extremely hot.

I would also suggest jacking up each corner and spinning the wheels to identify any irregularity or binding. There should be some resistance on the back wheels but no hard grip.

Dartmoor is a little way from me - I live in Chillington between Dartmouth and Salcombe, near to the coast. All beautiful around here and have enjoyed my mountain biking trips to Dartmoor. Wonderful scenery and very few people. Moretonhampstead from memory is a lovely market town and one of the more functional areas.

Once again thanks i'll try that, in the end i'll probably end up taking it to a garage as all the discs are rusty & a little pitted so maybe a good idea to replace the lot,

I have a scraping noise from the rear of my 2005 Icon. Turns out that its the Fuji LSD. Apparently there are small clutch type plates within the diff and they break off if put onto a rolling road for the MOT test. These then float around inside the diff causing the scraping noise. I am in the process of purchasing a Torsen LSD to replace the offending article.

Hopefully it is not the diff but as pointed out these can give problems.

In any event I would change the diff oil as contaminated oil has been highlighted as a possible cause of premature failure of the Superfuji diff.
