Customer Question

Hi Bob
I have a strange grating noise which I think is coming from front left of car. it does appear to get louder when going around roundabouts. Thius week I have noticed that when selecting reverse esp when cold when I release the clutch there is loud rattle like something is loose and reverse gear is lounder then before. It also sounds like the enging is labouring when in reverse like its binding
Any ideas?

Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Was the transmission and differential fluid checked?
if you rev at neutral, does the engine seem, sound normal?
only in reverse you feel the binding?
