    grinding noise from front wheel side

    There's grinding noise from front wheel driver side. It comes when the car has been wet in rain (moderately). The noise is irrespective of speed. The noise is intermittent but persists long.

    for start :- do get the wheel balancing and allignment checked nicely, also check if break pads are proper without any major loss of rubber

    Hissing noise from Brake Booster

    As mentioned by Jumu I was also getting hissing noise (Air-leak) near Steering system.

    I found that noise is coming from internal side of Brake Booster. Near brake paddle.

    Noise is clearly noticable when engine reaches at its operating temp. When engine reaches at operating temp. engine clatter is minimised. At that time we can hear this noise by concentration.
    But you should be in silent premises. (On highway and outside of city OR in the silence of night )

    Noise vanishes when I press Brake Paddle. Are there more cases like this.

    hi ,

    I am hearing a sound from clutch when pressed and released . The clutch is smooth and i founded some difficult in engaging gears 2-3 weeks ago , but now no problem in gear shifting . What could be the cause . My car has covered 16,400 km and i got CSC changed at 14,500 kms. Plus when i break with clutch , brakes are not that effective . Any info guys ..?

    Is it a squeak? The pedal joint may just need a lil' bit of oiling.

    I think you're referring to pressing the brake pedal along with the clutch one?

    This is quite intriguing and frankly i don't have an answer for it.

    If you are simultaneously pressing the clutch pedal along with the brakes, you are basically negating the effect of engine braking. Try braking on an empty stretch with and without pressing the clutch and you will surely find that the braking ability is better when the clutch pedal is left alone until the very last second.

    I was hearing a distinct tak-tak sound from front left door on almost every bump today . So i checked this out and now whenever from inside of a door i pull the handle towards me the door is making a similar sound . How can this be rectified as its quite irritating in a car which has been very silent till now...
