    Default Multiple problems at front end of cultus

    ma car is not smooth at the front area.




    1) Tak Tak karech karech noise when apply brakes (noise like Train's brakes) and also gives a Jhatka. Have cleaned the disks and pads many times. Vehicle had been serviced and oiled.




    2) at speed of 80-120 the car suddenly moves bit right left. Lack of road grip. very minute movement but you can feel it. New yokohama tyres, wheels balanced, had the alignment many time but no improvment. Machanic says every thing is ok. Alignment people say no problem is visible. I have both the Rear Shocks repaired, Is this causing any problem to the grip.




    3) Are these two problems interrelated? Is there any one thing which is not functioning correctly?









    Needs expert advise please.

    For the noise, check ur brake pads, are they sitting in correctly? If yes are ur discs' surface(both sides) even?..as for the other problem get ur wheels balanced and check out for any deformation on tyres and their pressure..if one tyre is overfilled/underfilled that will also make this happen(on hard braking does ur car pull towards either side?)..has ur car ever been involved in a frontal crash?..you need to tell more and in detail, what u told is like 'moti moti baatain'..oh, did u ever went through a hole or whatever with enough force to damage the housing/frame/chassis/axles?..also, have u increased ur car's height/ground clearance?

    Tyres are brand new and Yokohama, problem also existed with the previous bridgstone, problem with tyres is ruled out. Have changed position of tyres. but the odd thing remains the same. Pulls to the right first then back. Takes just a second.

    Machanic certified the steering. But steering produces tak tak once or twice, not the noise of CV joint. So if I want to check the steering 100% how? I have loosed reliability on machanics, they are not much concerned about performance. I would like myself to be satisfied. So on the steering assembly what should i check. There's no play in ball joints. and ends have been pressed recently.

    OK. I will do the following at first instance:


    Get the whole steering assembly checked in detail.


    Get the front and rear suspension checked.


    Re-check the bush and bolts, and check the frame.





    Replace the axles with kablis inculding inner and outer joints.


    After checking the front right side brake system for any jams, get the disks tooled, pads cleaned and change their positions (left to tight and right to left).


    And at the end will replace the repaired rear shocks with brand new.


    Hope any result is produced after this.
