Hi,

I have a 2007 Forester x, and its got a good jingle coming from the rear when going over pot holes, speed bumps, bad surface etc. However when the rear right wheel only hits a pot hole there is no jingle, so it must be something to do with the rear left of the car. Subaru Cape Town have tried to fix it by putting a new Exhuast back box and also by removing the heat shields. This has made no difference. The jingle is like coins in a metal box, and can only be heard with the windows down or standing outside the car.

Wonder if anyone had any ideas what this could be?

Cheers

Archie

Have you checked the swaybar bushes and end links?

Try "Re-Enacting" it with handbrake slightly on. Could be brakeshoes....
Or maybe something in the door?
Also, the rear bumper has a flimsy bracket in the side portion, which tends to break and then rattle.

I have a rattle in the front, but I know it's the brake calipers that have worn sliding pins.

Maybe also check shock mounts. Remove the plastic cover at the top mount, and check for loose bolts etc.
Remove the metal cover, and check the Shock nut.........

When it's metal-to-metal rattle/jingle, you should see rust coloured dust.

I had a "crackling" sound at the front some time ago, and it was the bracket holding the ARB link to the control arm that was torn. Maybe something similar at the back?

SLS Canister loose???

Also check rear seat, for loose bolts......

@fozziedriver Cheers for the reply. I had alook at the sway bar bushes and end links. Nothing seemed loose, but wouldnt be able to say i know how they should be. But tapping them didnt recreate the jingle.

@berndp Thanks too for the reply. Will try the handbrake idea, and report back. Otherwise will look at the shocks.

Cheers!

@berndp Thanks, you legend! you got it first time, it is the brake shoes. Thanks so much! Glad to have got to the bottom of this. An exhaust and 3 wasted trips to Subaru Cape Town, should have come here first time!

To get a better understanding of the issue, what needs to be done to fix this?

Cheers

Archie

I'm no legend, but thanks anyway.

Get the drums skimmed, or get new ones.
New shoes, they're not that expensive.

Glad to be of help.
CDF helps. (No, I can't explain CDF on the forum ;D ;D)

I had a persistent noise on the front suspension that was driving me crazy. Three weeks ago Subaru Somerset greased the pins that hold the brake pads in position. Problem solved.  ;)

Grease?? Well, I suppose it can't hurt, as long as the dustcovers hold.

BMW service has a special Teflon grease for these.   I had the same problem on an 1985 e30.   

Grease will go wonky and run past that seal when the brakes heat up.
