Since December, I have noticed noise when making slow sharp. This noise happens more frequently when turning into parking spots. It doesn't happen when the surface is wet. The noise is as if there is a need for lubrication. Has anyone had this happen? if so, what did you do about it? I took my car into the dearlship last week but it had rained the night before and it didn't make the noise.

Thanks for all your help/suggestions.

Is it a kind of grinding noise? How old is the car? If there is a grinding noise, I have heard that it could be the CB boot. I had a grinding noise on my last car and they replaced the driver side axel or something. Cost around $150.

Hopefully more car-knowledgable members reply.

Noticed the same problem on my 2004 I4-GT (no judder, just moan) a few months ago and got it fixed under warranty... My dealer is pretty good. They didn't ask me to reproduce anything.. They just looked up the "TSB" and followed the instructions on it... Which is replacing the front discs & pads... No questions asked.

Depending on the year of your 6 , This could possibly be the answer to your problem

Had the same thing happen to my old car when I threw 17s on it. Took it to some shop and they fixed it. I forget exactly what it was, but it had something to do with an object grinding against the brakes. Quick and easy fix. It sounded like a sharp squeek sound when I would make a sharp left going about 5 mph.

yes I have the same thing it only happens when I am turning and breaking slowly. Like parking. I have debated taking it to the dealer cause they always think we are making up crap.

Actually it is not grinding, it is moaning. Similar to sound of train. I'll try taking it back in. I have a 20046 S.

Not likely to be a CV joint...they usually make a clicking noise.

Moaning could be coming from your brakes. If your brakes are glazed, it will cause throaty noise (rather than a squealing noise) especially at slow speeds. Rain and moisture will probably dull the noise or eliminate it, which would explain your experience.

Nothing that a turn of the rotors/sanding of the pads shouldn't take care of...hopefully.

Whenver the weather gets cold around here, like 20 or lower, I get this noise. It's like a clicking noise, something the CV joints would make. But it's weird how it only happens when it's cold. I've noticed this from last winter already but it seems to go away when the car is warmed up. So many people post about sounds they hear and it just all kind of confused me so I kinda gave up since I didn't notice anything unusual when I looked around.

When you bring it to the dealer, do like I did, bring with you a -Print Out- of the TSB .... And don't go in there and say "I think my problem might be....." or "I think the problem might be caused....".

What I did was walk in there and very politely said: "I've got a problem with a moaning noise coming from my front wheels when applying warm brakes during slow speed turns... Here's the TSB, I'd like to book and appointment to get it fixed".

They started saying that this was a US TSB and that Canadian models are different.... To which I responded "On September 2003, this 6 came out of the same plant as all other north American 6's" and booked an appointment for the end of the week, to give them a chance to find it in their Canadian TSB's. Few days later when I walked in for my appointment, they didn't ask any questions... They replaced the brake pads and even replaced the disc (TSB simply called for machining them)....

Hey, worst case scenario, you come out of there with new pads and discs... I understand that your 6 is a 2004, but still check the date it was built (drivers door).... I don't know about the states but here in Canada, 2004 (some of them for sure) are actually built in 2003.... Just make sure your 6 was built prior to October 1st 2003.... Otherwise just forget about this TSB....

I'm having the same issue, mainly when backing up and turning, but its kind of a popping shifting feeling when turning into a parking space or backing out. They already performed the TSB which calls for installing new strut bushings....didn't fix it. Just dropped it back off today so they will look at it again. For my problem, the whole steering wheel kind of shifts back a little, away from the pressure, it feels almost like the front end is loose or someting.

The dealer here is great, I had no problems reproducing the problem and they said they will look into it.
