    Default RSM 225 strange noise

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    For those of you who have a RSM 225 can you please tell me whether this is normal?

    Whenever i reverse in my car (out of driveway in the morning and parking spot at work) then put it in 1st and start to move i get a strange thump, followed by 3 clicks that i can hear and also feel through the pedals. Is this normal??
    The only reason i thought it may be normal is that it happens at the same time everytime, and sounds and feels exactly the same.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like the ABS system check. Even my Outback does it.

    I have a 2001 Scenic RX4 that makes a similar thud when you first select first gear, am glad to know it's probably normal.

    Yeah sounds like the ABS system purging...

    A largish click, then small vibrations through the brake pedal...
    She'll be right mate!

    Cheers guys,

    I knew asking here would either put my mind at ease, or tell me to book it in.
