I assume that this is a sl2 or a sc2 both have a rear sway bar and possibly have binding sway bar links. remove rear wheel and find link that goes from rear sway bar to strut and make sure it is able to pivot. if they are binding they make a lot of noise and need to be replaced

The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?


There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

2004 envoy noise from front end while driving


How did you check it? Look at it? I think it's a sealed bearing. While driving, slowly sway the car left to right and back again. Does the noise become more prominent in either direction? When you put mor weight on a bad bearing they make more noise. Turning left puts more weight on the right side and vice versa.

OK, let me be more specific on the front noise on my 2006 Honda Accord, EX, 4cyl. I have 80000 miles and about 3000 miles ago, I started to hear a noise , which I believed was coming from the driver side...


While driving and with radio off, listen to the noise. Find a road that is clear on which you can drive without any traffic. Drive at a constant speed and make light shifts to the left and right, by doing this, the weight of the vehicle will shift to the apposite side of the steering wheel to which you turn.
When you turn to the left, the weight goes to the right (passenger side) wheel, if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
When you turn to the right, the weight goes to the left (driver side), if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise does NOT go away, then you may have bad CV's.
Another way to check is by lifting and securing in jack stands. Vehicle in neutral and with your hands, rotate wheel with one hand. Other hand place on suspension component. Spring of strut. If you feel slight vibration, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
With vehicle on jack stands, one hand on top of wheel and other on bottom, try to see if you can move the wheel in and out which may be a had CV.

The passenger side front makes a weird humming noise


You most likely have a bad hub bearing (97.5% sure). Here's how to test it..

  • Drive the car to about 40-50 m.p.h.
  • Sway side to side, see if the noise responds in intensity increasing, or decreasing.
  • If it did note which way you sway the vehicle to get it to increase and decrease.
  • If it increases in noise when going left it is the RIGHT hub bearing
  • If it increases when going right it is the LEFT hub bearing
  • The reason this is happening is due to you loading the suspension of the vehicle with more of the vehicle's weight, therefore making the condition worse when loaded, and less when un-loaded.
  • Thank you, and please give me a good rating if this was helpful.

I have 89 old 88 delta. When driving it sounds like a real high humming noise from the passenger front end, when the weight is shifted to the drivers side it seems to go away until weight is put back on...


Wheel bearing. Sounds like the right front, but have the mechanic verify it first. A lot of bearings have been replaced for the opposite side that they thought was bad.

2002 trailblazer making loud humming noise when driving


When you turn right - you're taking weight off the right wheel.
If the noise dissipates - the passenger side wheel bearing is most likely to blame.

I need to know what is the maximum weight for a ford fiesta


I don't think that anyone publishes that number but, I would not consider putting anything more than half or less of the average weight of max passenger load (assume the average passenger at about 165lbs) Reasoning behind this is that weight distribution is an important factor in how your vehicle handles. By adding weight above the vehicle, you are radically changing the center of gravity,(creating a "top-heavy" situation) making the possibility of a roll-over greater.
You also need to consider the weight of the load you are carrying inside the car. You don't want to exceed that number overall or it will cause "bottoming" and suspension damage.
So, if packing for a trip, keep the heaviest items inside the passenger compartment where the weight is between the front and rear wheels, next heaviest in the trunk and lightest in the roof addition. this will keep the roll center as low as possible and front to back weight distribution even. You may want to raise your tire pressure a few pounds as well to prevent a tire failure from overloading. Max pressure and weight load is marked on the sidewall of every tire.
One other item worth mentioning is to check your roof box after the first thirty miles or so. make sure it is still secure...I see far too many lying on the side of the road, likely because someone did not do that.!!

Good Luck

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am and it makes a loud noise


Bad front wheel bearing on the drivers side. When you turn left it shifts more of the vehicles weight to the passenger side and takes the pressure off of the drivers side. Not uncommon but will need attention soon. Hope this helps
