Cracking/dinging noise when moving

Postby BTom92 on Fri, 06 Aug 2021 9:18 +0000

Hey guys - new to the forum.
I own a manual 2003 petrol SR5. Since I have owned the car (over the last two years), I have noticed a metalic ding/crack noise when moving off from first gear, and also reversing. Its not consistent and never occurs in any other gears or once the car moves.
I thought it could be related to a loose trim piece or chain attached to the spare tyre, but nothing has solved it. Any suggestions on what it could be?
Thanks in advance.

Thinking a little outside the box here ... Can you try using your phone to record the sound and post the *.wav sound file so we can actually hear what you're talking about?

Universal joint? That's what it sounds like :?

I was thinking worn bushes or sway bar rubbers, but without more info it's a bit hard to tell. That's why I suggested a sound recording?

Sorry guys, was sick for the past few days. Will try and get a recording today. I will look back through my records, but I think my u-joint was replaced only a couple of months ago.

Is that around when this started? Maybe there's the problem? If not then it isn't the problem.

I tried to get a good sound recording, but you couldn't hear it clearly. I am going to try again tomorrow.
I've had the car for roughly two years and noticed it from purchase. I didn't think much about it at the time. According to my invoice, the rear uni joint was replaced less than 3 months ago.
