This is more than likely caused by worn or hard rubber suspension bushings, replace them to correct the noise, do all of them.

SOURCE: Rumbling & grinding under front end

Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

SOURCE: nissan primera squeeky noise from front suspension

Hi
I had the same problem. It cast me lot money in changing few things but finally found. The side where the noise comes from look fro the supension arm it is connecting the main suspensionto the body. You have to change that or find silicon oil and spray around the bushes of the arm.

good luck

SOURCE: can't get front wheel bearing retaining nut to break loose

Air tools? good heavens. Just get some classic coca cola and wait. She goes loose left handed. But make sure you undo the fixing of the nut first (the way it is secured not to turn loose spontaineously). At some cars there is a split pin, Mazda had those deformable ones which you had to cut partially. (And new ones ready)

Clicking noise turning right


Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

Front Left side wobbly and there is a squeeky noise when driving


Have you checked the tires ?
Sometimes a wobble can be a broken belt inside the tire tread.
Or it could be something loose in the hub.
You could also switch the front and rear tire to see if the wobble moves.

2003 F250 FX4, 7.3L diesel, auto, 151k miles. Front hubs and seals replaced, front brake rotors and pads replaced. Noise is squeeky see saw at a fast tempo at any speed over 15 mph. Can go away after...


it might be that your mechanic didn't grease the brake tips when he installed them...
which means what when the brakes move back and forth when you use them...there is no grease that makes it move smoothly...
let your mechanic take a look at them...
Good Luck!

Car rattle when driving on smooth road noise coming from all 4 corners ford puma when going over bumps etc . totally worse on an uneven surface . any ideas ?


I think you should check brake calipers and brake pads. The suspension is in constant motion and the shock dampening for the body is suppose to isolate the body.

There are compounds like "Brake Quiet" which is a rubberized paste that is to be applied between the pads and caliper. You may need new brake hardware which will tighten the pads and calipers to the car.

Check your heatshields on the exhaust system. Gravel can get sandwiched between them and rattle like crazy. Check them COLD and hit them with your hand and listen for rattles. Sometimes hubcaps can pickup stones, but if you work on the brakes you will be taking the hubcaps off anyway. Good Luck on this repair.

Ford windstar 2002 - I have had a whistling noise from the front driver side since 2 months. They changed my drums, and front inner tie rod to the tune of $1000. and I have left the garage with the same...


thr drum brakes are on the rear of the vehicle. rotors are used on the front. if they did not service the front brakes, then that iswhy the noise is still there.

A rattling noise


I had rattling noises as well (over bumps and when I reved the engine) and it turned out to be the heat shields under the car. I took out 2 heat shields covering the two cats on both sides AND two rusted out dangling rings hanging from the exhaust coupler (have NO clue what they were for)..This has TOTALLY gotten rid of the rattling noise. Good luck!
