AN INTERMITTENT TAPPING NOISE

2001 Rover 45 • 96,000 miles

There is a squeeling noise when I turn right and sometimes when the abs kicks in it feels as iff its forcing the brake pedal back up. This happens when braking slowly also. Also there is an intrmittent tapping noise when driving which sounds exactly like a distant pnuematic drill. Can you advise please?

The squealing noise could be from a loose belt. The ABS or braking problem could be due to a loose wheel bearing. Tapping noise or any other noise can be from anything and we need to know the source of it to be able to diagnose. Noises only during vehicle movement would be related to the wheels or drivr trains.

You would need to have a visual inspection and test drive to determine the cause.
