Just out of the blue possibly the wheel barring but I doubt it seeing how new it is!

I talked to Paul(87camaroPA) and we were wondering, is there any un-usual tire wear or any 'rubbing' marks on the inside tire well?

Do you live near a beach or did you happen to go to a beach lately? Sand can really tear apart moving mechanisms in a car and possibly your stearing mechanism could be the cause.

Is the noise loud? Can you always hear it while turning or does it sometimes do it and sometimes not?

Worst comes to worse, take it to the stealership and use your warranty affectively!

Well, a squeeky/whistling noise sounds more like it would be a wheel bearing. This same thing happened in my del Sol.

The plastic bottle sound he described just deosn't seem to be a wheel bearing, more of a maybe rubbing of the inner wheel well possible.

Well let me know how it works out! Don't get to 'lazy' with it. Things like that need checked out as soon as possible. Not 100% what would happen, but I can tell you it most likely wouldn't be pretty. Actually, you would probably just need to replace one....

If its just a slight whining noise it might just be your power steering, tons of cars make that noise.... :confused:

Hmm... Thats true. If it happens when she turns each pay and such.

Fox, is your powersteering fluid full?

The whistle must be the supercharger, and the squeak is from the spinning tires. In my professional advice, I'd recommend a less liberal use of the pedal to the right or upgrade to the G85 package immediately. Loss of friends could result.



It would be weird for a wheel bearing to go so early unless you often hop curbs like a police officer in a movie.
