I've got an 01 S80 and when I press the gas to pull out from a stand still position it makes a rubbing sound (hard to describe). It doesn't do it all the time, but it seems to do it more when I'm turning and accelerating at the same time. Any ideas as to what this may be? Thanks!<br>

Stop the wheel <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> haha<p>I believe it stops the wheel from hitting you wheel well..... I need new wheel stops and they rub at full lock hitting against the wheel well.

Re: (phuz)

That's what it sounds like, metal on rubber not metal on metal. I'm going to have to have my rotors replaced according to the dealership, would that have anything to do with it? As you can tell, I know nothing about the mechanics of cars!<p>How much will it cost to replace my rotors by the way?

Re: (Volrus)

your rotors might be a little warped. but you won't have to have them replaced for that unless they're really thin. otherwise they'll turn them to take the warp out and you're good to go. <br>

Re: (SkyWriter)

Unfortunately they've already been turned once and the dealer says they are too thin to turn again. I'm thinking it'll probably be around $500 to get them replaced, but I don't know for sure.

Re: (phuz)

That is obvious, but a good suggestion and something I haven't done. I'll take a look tonight and see what I can see.

Re: (Volrus)

so what's the verdict on the noise?

My 2004 S80 with stock 18" wheels has a similar noise. I'm pretty sure mine is due to tire/something rubbing together. It makes the noise when taking corners hard enough to shift the weight to one side or the other. Especially when there's a change in the slope of the road on a corner (like on my way to work every morning). I'm hoping it's not a problem with wheel stops, as mentioned earlier, because I don't like the large turning radius as it is. <p>I've been wondering if maybe I should replace some of the suspension. The car's at 60k miles and I just recently bought it, so I dunno what kinda driver/road conditions it's been through. <p>Has anyone else had problems with tires rubbing against the wheel wells?

Re: Rubbing Noise (Volrus)

I have a 1999 S80 T6, and mine has a rubbing noise as well. It's my tie rod, and its coming from the driver side. My girlfriend actually compared to the noise to a cricket. It's most notable when turning or driving over bumpy surfaces. Don't know if yours sounds the same way, hope this helps.
