    Lightbulb VERY noisy reverse!! HELP!!




    Hello,

    My wife just bought (I convinced her..) an Astra 2004CD, it is 2.4lt, automatic.
    Made in Brazil. We are the second owners. [PHOTO]

    ...and there is a horrible loud-noise when reversing and pressing the
    brakes at the same time (ie: reverse parking, etc).
    It looks that the noise is coming from the front.
    What it can be??!
    My wife is gonna kill me is there is something wrong or very expensive
    to fix...



    Thanks a lot, greetings from Mexico City.

    being an automatic it should ahve some movement on its own when ingears try letting it free run when in reverse ad only use throttle and brakes at didfferetn times, its probbaly just stressing the engine!

    The noise is to loud to be something normal, it sounds like a loose plate or something...but to loud. This just happens when stepping the brakes (or pulling the handbrake) in reverse, as when you park, etc. I never use the break pedal and the throttle at the same time, when you let the car go reverse alone without brakes the noise is gone, but is back when you park again or enter the garage in reverse-and-breaking., etc.


    Thank you.

    It seems unlikely that it is the torque converter that is at fault, but you never know, however, alot of us here in the UK drive manual transmission cars, it would be hard to discern what the true problem is
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!

    mhhh OK.. is that too expensive? How to be sure is that?
    I know it would be difficult to discern what the true problem is just with lines of text.



    PS.: Here in Mexico the roads and the driving people are just a horrible caos, that's why we use a lot
    more the automatic transmission.

    Thank you.

    to be honest i cant say how much it would cost for the gearbox to be repaired, as you are in Mexico, and I am in the UK, not only that since I do not know how an automatic gearbox works, I cant tell you either, surely though if you hear this noise going backwards, you should also hear it going forwards also, is there anyway you can take it to the point of purchase if it was a car dealer or similar and get them to look at it, or take it to your nearest Chevrolet dealer or service center for inspection
