audible 'tok' when cornering
Posted 09 January 2003 - 06:17 PM
I get a metallic 'tok' sound when I corner.
it always happens when I come out of a multi level car park and the road outside slops down. when I come out of the car park I make a left turn and then I hear a ... 'tok' once.
do you get wot I mean?
also, is this BAD sign???

I presumed the "tok" sound is from front part.
seem it is the joint of the drive shaft problem.
if you happen to hear the "tok" sound again when cornering (full turn)...then it is almost confirm joint problem. This is a common symtoms of joint problem for front wheel drive car.

sorry, I'm not too sure where it's coming from.
I'm only presuming it's coming from the back.
Also, the sound is 'tok' not 'tok-tok-tok-tok-...'
Also, it's not at full turn. When I take the turn , I turn the steering wheel 360 degrees( turn the steering wheel to the left 360 degrees) not until the end. That means, when I turn the steering right 360 degrees, the wheels are now straight.
also, I am going slowly at about 5-10 kph.
anymore information required?
thanks for the help,

alternatively it could possibly mean that some else is or maybe loose and therefore requires a bit of tightening... but my best guess is the absorbers... if you have yet to change it... if you find that your absorbers are still in good condition, ask the mech to put something there to absorb/dampen that sound... i've known the Pugs to have this prob...

thanks a bunch for the info!
I take it that since that it's probably something loose then it's not too critical. No, the absorbers have not been changed yet. They(the absorbers) appear ok to me, since there's no scrapping sound when going over a speed-bump or bumpy/undulating surfaces.
I will take my car to my mech and see what he says.
