    Your forgiven, haha can you be a little more descriptive of the "grinding ":D you speak of ? i.e; do you feel any thumps or clunks or strange movement in the steering wheel ? Or is the grinding more like metal 2 metal ? The more info you provide the better chance of resolving the issue..

    & you wanted a diaphram for your lap top ? huh ?

    Oh, you said "diagram" . Shit dude you scared me for a sec. thought you were having sex with your PC for a minute there.......:eek::eek:


    What kind of diagram are you speaking of ?

    Does it do it at certain speeds or all the time? Is it a grinding or a ticking like noise?
