    Baleno knocking noise

    Not sure why you have not seen my previous entry, but it was due to the tracking being way out ! This had caused wear on the OS drop link from the ARB, this allowed sudden movement of the bar, which then just touched the cross member, causing the knocking. There was no visual indication at the...

    Speeding!

    I do not advocate speeding at all, however, I still got a speeding ticket while I was driving the Vicar to the station ! I paid up, but as the location of the said offence was on a stretch of country road with no hedge, and flat land for 50 odd metres on either side with no speed limit...

    Baleno knocking noise

    The knocking did happen when going over minor bumps/uneven surface etc. I am now sure the wheels being so far out of track had put a lot of undue pressure on the OS drop arm and had worn/strained it. The sudden excess movement in it that ensued when the wheel moved over bumps appears to have...

    Well ! Got to the bottom of the problem at last. Partly my own fault as I had suspected that the tracking was out ever since I bought the car, but not being my main transport did not take it in for it to be checked out, although I have had the suspension checked. However it is odd that they did...

No, it something/two compnents close together that touch when a certain frequency of vibration is present or suspension movement on the front happens. As the shocks and steering...

    Well, I had a grope :lol: under the dashboard and could locate nothing that had movement, or, even a suggestion of such. Took off grill to see if it was W/Screen wiper links loose. No it wasn't. So am back to square one at the moment. While under the bonnet I had a check on mechanicals, which...

    I expected that was going to be the answer given, but was hoping for something a bit more specific as my bending and looking up under dashboards days are long gone ! Thanks though, I will just have to try and have a delve as best I can. Still, at least I know the steering suspension are OK, so...

    As a 1st timer I obviously entered my first effort in the wrong place. Anyway. I bought a Suzuki Baleno estate to move my mother round when she was ill. It has turned out to be in very good condition, and a delightful car to drive and run. However, it has a donking noise coming from under the...

    Baleno knocking noise

    Sorry to moan in my first post on the site. Actually the noise is more of a dull sound. It seems to be coming from under the O.S. of the dash. Adjusting the steering rake does cause it to alter a bit ! It has been determined at the garage that it is definately not streering/suspension related...
