Renault 19 TD Funny Noises!! - steveholden
Recently got hold of a Renault 19 TD (RT) and took if for some new tyres. About 9 hours after fitting them the car makes what i can only describe a rubbery noise when braking! a sort of squeak, and it now makes some odd knocking/wobbling noises when you turn to the right. any ideas?

thanks in advance!

1st thing I would check is that your wheel nuts are done up tight.

This is maybe no help at all.....but my Mum's Clio had similar symptoms, especially going down hill on a sharp left bend.Checked everything out - dampers, driveshafts, brakes etc etc. Triumphantly, I found a snapped anti roll bar connection. Got a new bolt fixed it and did the noise stop?

Did it heck!

Then I just happened to notice that the front mudflap was catching the front wheel on a sharp turn! Took the flap off and everything was hunkydory!

Are your roll bar bushes OK?

I know the Renault 5s had problems with the back torsion bar bearings drying out - made a dreadful clattery creaky noise. The R19 would ahve a similar setup. They are a big job to fix - but not terminal if you can live with it.

I had a R19 - it wore out it's front wheel bearings very quickly, but that was more of an ever increasing rumbling grinding noise.

Loose wheel trims or wheel trims contacting the rubber of the tyres? Does it go away in the wet?
