  1. I have 2 unusual noises coming from my S15. One is a "ringing" sorta noise coming from the turbo (noise continues for about 15 - 20 seconds after turning off the engine) and one is a "squeak" or "chirp" with every wheel rotation from one rear wheel... This only started when I got new brake pads. I took it back to the guys that installed the pads and they said it was a rock but the noise seems to be getting a bit louder each day. Doesnt matter whether the car is cold, warm or hot for either of the noises. I have heard that it may be the bearings in the turbo and the rear bushes being dry/worn? Any opinions/suggestions? Thanks in advance, Sam.
  2. Turbo is gone. Started whining really loud this morning. Rebuild or replace my GT28RS?
  3. Any suggestions as to who I could take it to to get looked at? I don't really want to go back to where I was last, as I am loosing confidence in them. I will not name and shame them, as I cannot confirm what the problems are at this stage, and if they are in any way responsible for them.
  4. Watched a few videos on shaft play, seems to be a similar ring, but nowhere near as clunky or rough sounding. Anyone got any ideas on the squeaky wheel? I'd upload a recording of it, but this site won't let me.
  5. Yeah I have a ball bearing GT28RS (disco potato? Why do they call them that..?) and I've always been able to hear it spinning after turning the engine off, but now it has a very distinct 'ring' to it, like little bells. Squeak from the wheel stops when I touch the brake and is loudest when doing under 10km/h, like in a car park. The faster I go, the quieter it gets.
