    Default alto vxr metal noise

    friends i have alto vxr2007. some time i hear metal striking noise from my front driver side when i apply brakes or when my car goes in to bumpy road
    somebody said that it is due to brake calliper i greased it with synthetic calliper grease but no result.
    many mechanics says it gartery noise but not resolved the problem

    Sir check your chassis, there is a problem of front broken chassis in Alto after 2-4 years or 80-100K kms.

    If the sound is coming from suspensions it can be the D bush, will not cost more then 100 Rs.

    If its a screeching sound from brakes, its the warning that you should change your front Discs.

    Regards
    can you please elaborate on the chassis being broken part? i have been experiencing the same problem in my 06 alto. but my understanding is that it is because of the loose/faulty exhaust system assembly. i have recently done a thorough inspection of the engine mounts n adjoining parts of the chassis, everything seems to b in order/not broken.
    I am also experiencing rather noisy brakes, had the brake pads replaced but the noise still persists. how can i check for faulty brake discs? A thorough guidance will b deeply appreciated.

    as i have mentioned earlier, the engine mounts have been thoroughly inspected and they are in excellent shape. the engine lies firmly in its place.

    Cool Your Solution

    Its neither of those problems.

    I will tell u what it is...
    Brake Disc k pechay ek METAL ki PLATE hoti hay , patlii si round si ... its of silverish color...
    Wo Brake Disc ko peche se guard karti hay

    Kuch time baad, wo loose hojati hay to it makes a noise like Chann Channn or Like metal on metal.

    Aap us lohay ki plate ko yaa to remove karwado ya phir usko sahi se weld karwalo. welding is the better option. i got my plate welded too
    here is a pic to show u
    see BEHIND the brake disc... aap apni gari mai isko check karwaein InshaAllah problem will be solved.

    alto vxr metal noise -151494

    alto vxr metal noise -151495



    Alto mai ye problem aati hay. Brake DISc k peechay ki chaadar kehlaati hey ye.

    what the guy is reffering to is the unibody has broken some spot welds near the front part where the engine mounts are resting the engine. Ive seen it happen a lot in these tin can suzukis

    In my case, the problem is diagnosed to b due to a loose exhaust assembly, some leakage near the 'dholki' and maybe because of a punctured metal gauze in the 'dhoki'.
    @venomdesire, the metal plates r firmly in their place n do not knock against brake discs whatsoever.
