View Full Version : strange noise

So, I have a weird noise coming from somewhere under the car, this noise is not speed sensitive.. it occures with both city and highway driving. I am dumbfounded because the car seems to not be affected by it. any ideas?

It sounds like a paper clip in a soda can, just a very noticible clinging..

sounds like its mostly comming from the left side and when I go over the little plastic reflectors I can hear it... turning doesn't make a noise..

kinda sounds like a relay...... kinda sounds like a lifter ?

Does ist make sound just at idle?, go away when you rev?
Does it do it with just the key on? Little plastic reflector... is this the sidemarker on the fender?

Do you know where the ECU cover is?

doesnt make it at idle. what makes me so dumbfouned is it only audible when i drive over a plastic reflector line markers on the ground, its barley audible over my exhaust when im just crusing.. I know it has nothing to do with the the ecu its more of something rattling like a lose electrical tie or something... its coming from the left side too

So, just when you driving and its comming from the drivers side
Just reflector line marker? How about a bump?
