In Topic: Noise From Steering Wheel

if you think timing then get it checked out.

you did not say the noise went when you put your foot down.


make a recording of the noise & post it up so we can hear & may have a better idea.

perhaps have the aux belt checked or the tensioner.

does the noise go when you  revv the car ?

give us a more detailed description if you can.

sounds like the radiator fan is running . is the car over heating ?

is the car up to temp when the noise is there as it maybe the thermostat is not working ?

or you may have a dodgy fan relay.

check you have water in the expansion tank ?

from memory you can adjust the hand brake from the inside of the car.

pull off the hand brake cover & you will see a nut on a thread.

put something under the wheels to stop the car rolling then release the hand brake & screw the nut down a couple of turns then re appy the hand brake without pressing the release button.  when you pull it up you need to set it so it clicks about 3 times on the ratchet.

once your happy apply the break remove the wheel blocks then release the break & re apply to make sure it's holding correctly & if it is then pop the cover back on & away you go. ithink it's a 10mm nut so a spanner or socket of the same size is all you need
