Auris Hsd - Niggles

Recommended Posts

Am going to be popping the car in to the dealer when I get the chance but just wondered if anyone else had similar niggles;

Reversing camera sometimes stays on when back in Drive. Only happened twice but seems to happen first thing so could be cold/damp related?

"Grinding" noise when coasting/in electric mode. The only way I can describe it is the metal on metal sound a train makes when it passes. I don't think it's the brakes or discs themselves although it does seem to get a touch sharper/louder when braking. It's on the near-side so you can only hear it in the car if you have the window open and you're passing something that reflects the sound.

It's a 2011 T-Spirit I got at the end of August so no idea how thrashed, or not, it was before I had it.

Not had any issues with my Auris HSD in the last 25 months. The "metal" sound is from (I believe) the inverter and is normal - but best get it checked out to be sure.

I had a similar noise on my car just before the service,it was 1 of the rear pads dragging on the disc slightly,you can test if it is that by having the window open and applying the handbrake while coasting,it will either stop or get worse,but at least you would find out if it is that.

I told the garage and during the service they stripped the brakes and copper slipped all the slides and runners,hasnt happened again since that was a few months ago.

Havent noticed anything with my reversre camera,i have noticed the displays in the speedo are a little slower when cold,must be the lcd screens.
