Default Gallardo turning noise

Hello everyone,

I took my G out for a spin yesterday and when I backed out of the driveway, it sounded like there was a loud grinding/clunking noise coming from the front. is this normal and what is the cause of this?

Cold car, cold weather, sharp turn or any combination thereof = Cold front differential. It should go away once warmed up.

I just purchased a 2012 Gallardo this being my first Lambo. I'm noticing the same thing. When I first start it and take it out the front left wheel clicks like the tires rubbing. I actually assumed that's what it was untll I seem this post. I have to think if we've had this problem their has to be other bull owners that have seen the same problem.

My 08 did exactly the same as you describe. It only did it twice and then never did it again. I thought I was going to have to take it to the dealer, and then it was just gone.

That grinding, bumping, hopping is perfectly normal in cold weather with the steering wheel at full crank. It's worse in reverse. When everything warms up, it'll be gone...or almost. I'm assuming the 550-2s don't have that problem?

My 550 has NONE of the characteristics of my 08. Reverse on a slight incline was challenging in my 08, it's a breeze in my 550.

In the Lotus forum, we have an icon for "TADTS" : "They all do that, sir."

well, not ALL, but it's common enough to say that anyway.

I always let my car warm up a few minutes before leaving, but at the end of my driveway when I turn out to the street I get the crunching noise everytime.
Just how it is.

It won't matter how long you let the engine warm up. Until the front diff has a few miles of driving on it, it is at ambient temperature.

The 'clunking' and 'hopping' comes from the combination of cold differential clutches, and cold tires.

It's normal on 'most' awd cars.
