Mine's doing the same thing, but from Right Front.........I'm attributing it to a warped rotor making the brake pad click.
Now my mind is :crazyeyes Let us knowJust tried it this morning. Holding up the parking brake does not eliminate the clicking.. I gradually pulled on the parking brake as the car turned around a bend in the parking garage (as you saw in the above video), when the clicking is most prominent. Anyway there was no change, other than slowing down the car a bit (I didn't pull it all the way as that would have just stopped the car).
Okay, you'd never guess this, but after I changed the tires, the clicking is gone.Now my mind is :crazyeyes Let us know
seems you had the problem I actually have.
Unfortunately your videos aren't online anymore that is why I am asking you,
if you could click the following link and take a look at my last video
at LOTUS EVORA PROBLEMS.
Do you alread know what it was, did the noise come back after replacing the tyres ?
Many thanks for your help in advance ...
ok, well I hope all works out for you.Many thanks for your help, squid.
The car will go to my Lotus dealership this week - I hope they are able to help.
What I experienced so far:
- In cold conditions the noise is not present, it takes around 3 kilometers until you hear it.
- When driving backward it is not present, only when driving forward.
Only to eleminate some causes I wanted to ask you:
I have seen in your "garage" that your car is a non-IPS, is that right ?
At the moment I think the problem is brake related and is perhaps coming
from the pads which move forward and backwards slightly in the caliper body.
Also I found similar problems from other vehicle manufacturers in other forums ...
Perhaps it is the right trace ... I will keep you informed
wow.. what prompted you to grind the brake pads? You must have observed some worn marks to determine that may be the cause, no?Yesterday evening my mates and me have been searching for the noise.
We have opened the rear drum brake (parking brake) and grinded the edges
of the brake pads.
Currently I do not have a clicking noise anymore. :nanner:
So I cancelled the intended service at my dealership - in the coming days
it will become clear whether we have found the source of the noise.
It can be said, that the noise is not coming from the gearbox, it is somethingwow.. what prompted you to grind the brake pads? You must have observed some worn marks to determine that may be the cause, no?
Well I'm certainly interested to seeing the long term outcome of this fix. When my wheels clicked it didn't seem like it needed a full rotation either..It can be said, that the noise is not coming from the gearbox, it is something
completely outside, very near to the brake discs.
Some of my mates experienced clicking noises with drum brakes in the past,
and as we couldn't find any problems with the AP racing brakes we opened
the drum brakes then.
In the picture below you see the yellow line (both brake pads looked like that),
the contour the brake pads had before we grinded it down to the red line,
then we cleaned the brake pads outside and also the brake discs inside.
But we did not discover any scratches or unusual wearout.
After we put everything together again I had a really hard testdrive with the car -
for the moment it helps ... I hope it will stay like that.
Mine also didn't need a full rotation and if moved forward and backward rotfl the noise always stayed at the same position.When my wheels clicked it didn't seem like it needed a full rotation either..
Cool video opcorn:
Vid doesn't work :crazyeyes
