Noise On Reversing On Left Lock

Recommended Posts

Hi all, the Wife has a 2005 Rav4 xtr auto 54k and recently the car has been making a sort of scraping /rubbing sound when on full left lock when reversing. I checked under the car making sure the wheel was not rubbing any bodywork (it's not),there is no noise on right lock.

I thought it could be low on power steering fluid but it was fine,the car runs fine otherwise.

Hoping it's not a transmission problem :huh:

Any idea's ?

Hmmm

I think theres been some posts on clunks but a rubbing noise? Dry rubber on driveshaft ?? loose engine mount? Trying to think what else is down there beside the gearbox. Wheel bearing? The nearside hub bearing gets a bit of abuse from hitting drains etc??
