Question about Peugeot 405

Open Question

Why is my 2000 Peugeot 206 making a loud creaking noise over speed bumps

This isn't a clunk or a bang - it's a definite creak/grind which only happens when driving over bumps. Loud enough for people to stop and stare!!

SOURCE: I have a creaking,clunking noise

Try looking at the sway bar link on each side. If they move easily by hand then they likely need to be replaced. You can do a sort of self test by rocking the car up and down at the front fender tire well. If you can hear it clicking when you rock it, it is likely that sway bar link. Good luck!

SOURCE: Creaking sound while turning steering wheel

There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bad Creaks, Moans, and scrubbing in y truck when i go over speed bumps or turn.

You need to rent the ball-joint removal/installation tool, a ball-joint removal fork, and a foot pound torque wrench (at either Autozone or Pepboys) and you need to borrow or buy a rack 3/8",1/2" metric sockets, I think a set of E-torks, a good size hammer, a repair manual (for directions and torque specifications), and a good jack and stands.

My car started clunking in the rear near the tire, especially when I turn left

Check your top shock absorber and/or strut mounts, they may have been hammered by the many bumps and stripped out the mounting hardware on top just an eighth of an inch which will cause super loud bangs as that side wobbles up and down and hits into the Body Metal. These can get dangerous if left loose at all, my old boss said his Taurus would change lanes by itself at 120 Km/hr in the rain!

Loud creaking sound when driving from front end 1997 Grand Voyager... not sure if it is shocks, or something worse. No popping sound that I can notice - just creaking. Not sure if safe to drive for another...

hi it could be the shocks, but normally they don't creak, they would normally work as normal but bang if you hit a bump, this sounds more like rubber bushings have worn or are very dry, have a look under the front of your car, and see if you can see any rubber items that have either perished or have worn, you can try getting some wd40 or some spray lube and just hitting all the rubber items with this then trying it and see how you go, i cant be 100% for obvious reasons ( i cant hear it for the main one ) but that's what it sounds like, try that first ...hope this sorta helps

Clunk noise from front passenger side when

That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Clunking and grinding noise

My 2003 F150 Supercrew would not engage in 4x4, it ended up being the shifting fork in the front end, cost me $200.
