Default 2006 Suzuki Swift Whining Noise

Hi All,

I am a new member here and I have come here to help as best I can and get some help

My problem i would like help with is, My mums (not my) 2006 Swift has a loud whining noise and i cannot figure out what it is

A few months back we changed the wheel bearings on the rear because we jacked it up and spun the wheels and heard the noise. It is a very irritating whining noise and i cannot figure it out.

Please help me ? Is this a common problem with these cars?

is the noise constant?
i have a noise that seems to sound like something rubbing once per rotation of the wheels.

Hi there, I have a 2007 which had the same issue, usually from 60kph to 90kph. I took it into my local suzuki dealer and the issue was caused by a abs sensor rubbing on the brake drum, cost me $71 and problem fixed

My swift also has a whining noise, it usually comes from the front seat, sometimes from the passenger seat, but disappears altogether when the missus isn't in the car...

Default what did they do ?

Hey Cyberm

I have this problem too.. you mentioned it being fixed by the dealer..... Can you tell exactly what they did please ? Did they grind back the sensor or the sensor ring ? Or replace parts ?

Cheers

Hey guys,

Easy fix with this one. Cyberm was spot on.
I had my rear left drum replaced (whole drum unit) with one from a wrecked swift.
Takes about half an hour to install and is super easy.
Part cost me $40 and installation is pretty straight forward (take it to a mechanic if you wish)

Pretty sure the cause of it is leaving the hand brake on at some point
Replace both or just replace the side that is making the noise

Default Replace drum ?

Callum, thank for the input. My understanding, based on this link Suzuki Swift Sport |CarAdvice is the gap between the abs ring and sensor is insufficient, causing the noise. The guy (John) says he ground back the "sensor" and problem fixed (not sure if he meant the abs ring, rather than the sensor?)

Wonder if anyone has done that here?

Also there appears to be a service bulletin, but I have been unable to find this. Anyone know where I can find this please?

The note on that link mentions modification of the ring height, so I presume Suzuki sells new modified ABS rings. Will have to check and see what is the most cost effective way of doing this....

i've got a '06 swift and over 70km/h it starts to make a noise from the front right wheel. i dont know if its the tyre or if its a bearing or what?. just changes pitch when getting faster and faster. could it be similar?

Default ABS sensor causing whining noise on 2006 Swift

I have also had the whining noise problem on LH rear wheel of my wife's Swift in the 50-80 km/hr range. Could hear the noise when wheel jacked up and spun by hand. While the wheel was spinning I found that the noise would stop if I pushed sideways on the ABS sensor at the back of the backing plate. To fix the problem I didn't have to remove the hub and I didn't have to grind anything on the sensor. Just loosen the holding bolt and move the sensor a bit and re-tighten the bolt (the hole in the ABS sensor is a bit bigger than the bolt and allows a slight amount of adjustment in the final fixed position of the sensor). Could have fixed the problem without even removing the wheel if I had known what to do from the start. Hope this info is of use to others.
