high pitch moise

Postby jarocki » Mon Dec 06, 2010 6:27 pm

got my lower ball joints changed recently and have since had a very high pitch moise coming from the car somewhere. it doesn't happen when the car is idling though? Any idea what it could be?

i dont think its anything relating to your ball joints. if it is, then it's something they knocked - nothing on suspension makes a whining noise.

power steering pump?

your power steering pump is working if you move the steering wheel at all. so the tiny movements of the wheel as you're driving will mean it's permaently working. i'm not saying it is this, but it's perfectly likely.

but if the power steering is working how would it be the pump. Best way to describe the noise is its like when you put your finger in a glass of water and rub it around the edges if thats any help.

Is it constant noise that increases/decreases in volume or or it rotational that gets faster or slower depending on speed?

i got this sorted a while ago sorry forgot to say it was the metal protection around the brake dics hitting against it. when ball joints were being changed it must have been pushed against the brakedisc. so when the car was moving it was making that noise.
