      Guys

      For the past one week I am hearing a noise from the front when the car is running. It was like a belt noise and So I checked the car with AC On and OFF. No problems there. As Hyundai was having free checking camp , thought of visiting Kun Hyundai, Iyyapanthangal where I did my last service.

      Went there yesterday morning and there was some huge crowd. After more than an hour, a mechanic accompanied me for a test drive. After the test drive, SA told me that the problem is not related to any belts, but it could be due to wheel bearings. As there was a heavy rush, he said he'll check and let me know. In the evening I was informed that , the bearing are fine, but the steering connector rod and bushing are the causing the noise and said, it will cost around 15,000/-. Before leaving the vehicle when the car was idling, he turned the steering wheel forcefully to both sides and there was mild noise. At that time itself he was saying, there may be a problem with the steering assembly.

      As I wanted to take a second opinion, I took the car back. Now my requests are,

      1. Is the mechanics fault analysis correct. If correct, what are the problems I will face, if the work is not undertaken,
      2. When I am driving I have no problems with the steering, not even a mild noise. Even after searching I could not correctly identify the steering connector rod.
      3. What could be approximate cost involved.

      My car Details : I10 - IRDE /2010 69,150 kms. The typical noise was like ttttttt...(mild noise noticeable only after you run for some time)

      Guys, help me with this please.

      Regards

      I have a similar problem, sometimes, please note 'sometimes' when I turn the steering when slowing down, there is a rough noise.
      Now, I went to SVC and couldn't reproduce the noise again and came back. I had changed the wheel bearings once, and the noise was like directly proportional to your speed and it was a humming sound.
      This sound is different and is random. I rarely use my santro now, so can't tell what it really is.
      Internet search made me conclude that this is stage one of wheel bearing damage. I am waiting for it to grow to a level where it becomes identifiable to the svc.
      Why walk when you can run?

      your car is 6 year old and has done approx 70k km, first identify the noise is it like squeaking or "thud thud"?,
      squeaking mostly happen when metal to metal connect without lubrication and thud thud could be because of bushing related problem.

      Do you hear noise at specific speed, steering turn or road condition?

      Actually, I hear no such noises when driving the car. May be the engine noise is supressing this, but even with a keen ear I couldn't notice any noise. But I hear the noise(dak, dak faintly) when the car is idling and the steering is turned to both sides. Thanks for the inputs.

      The noise actually is not heavy, its almost like squeaking belt noise with a light dak, dak continuing. That is why I was checking all the belts. I kept the car in idling and opened the bonnet and tried to observe the anamolies. But couldn't hear any and I pressed the accelarator too, nothing abnormal. Even the SA first could not notice the sound and I encourage him to goto an open road and then he heard the noise. He switched off the engine while in motion and we could hear the noise still. Then he made the announcement that bearing might be the problem. But after lifting the car and thorough check up he says the problem with Bushing and connector rod.

      Let me take a second opinion, My only problem is a FNG should not miss the actual problem leading to bigger troubles.

      When the rubber boot is torn and lubricant has dried out, its time to fit new tie rod ends.....How did you tear the boot? Has someone done some repairs on that side of the car close to the balljoint?

      Update to this Guys : I thought of taking a second opinion with some body else and went to Balaji motors (Bosch franchisee for Porur). He has checked the car and says the problem is with the front tyres. He even replaced the tyres with CEAT ones for checking and I could not hear the noise. But the test speed was only up to 45 kmph as we could not go much faster in city roads. Asked him to give my original tyres and I will talk to my tyre specialist Padmavathi tyres, valasaravakkam. Any input on these guys.
