Oct 2008

34720 mi
A "pinging" noise was heard when cornering right above 60kmh. The noise was traced back to a misaligned drivers front brake shield that was catching on the rotor a/o caliper. This might be related to the same wheel having had a new bearing installed prior Sunroof required alignment as the back drivers corner was not correctly seating when closed. There was no water leakage but the misalignment (about 1/64") was noticeable standing beside the vehicle. Loud wind noise from upper windshield area. More pronounced in cooler weather. Windshield was replaced (non dealer) in May 2008 due to a rock strike. Noise was not there prior to windshield replacement. Dealer/Windshield shop could not replicate noise.
