Is this truck a 4 wheel drive? Sounds like it could be a wheel bearing

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Grating Noise, Front Struts?


It very well could be the strut.
smaller chance could be the CV axle.
Also have the splash guards/heat shields checked to make sure they are all tight in place.

Te front end is making a loud noise when driving, when you turn to the left it gets louder. What could be the problem?


Sounds like you have a bad hub bearing or possibly a bad half shaft. Most likely it is the hub bearing assembly.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy 4x4 and recently (December 2010) had my Struts, Rotors and Breaks replaced. Since then, when driving over 35 mph+ I start hearing a loud clicking noise coming from the front right...


First check that the road wheel nuts are tight. I had a friend who rebuilt a tractor to find and repair a fault when in fact is was loose wheel nuts that were to blame all along! Check the universal joint at the back of the hub. Remove the road wheel and twist the half drive back and forth looking for play in the spider assembly. There should be no movement or noise in any of the drive line components. If you can see and feel movement in the outer universal joint it will need replacing. Rock the wheel hub up and down and left to right to see if there is any movement in the wheel bearing. Likewise if there is movement this will mean a new bearing. Check the lower ball joint connected to the wheel upright. Inspect the caliper assembly to ensure it is bolted securely and that the disc rotor is mounted with the securing bolts correctly. Basically you are making sure that everything that should be tight is not worn or slack. Check all rubber bushings on suspension arms to be sure that the through bolts are centered Lastly look for any free play in the steering arms and rack mechanism.

Sound like a bad front wheel hub bearing, if you can jack up the front end of your car and turn the front wheel's and listen for the sound or take it to a repair shop to have it check, if not taken care of will cause more damage to your car.

If the noise changes when you turn side to side while driving you have bad wheel bearing. (Hub Assy)
Hope this helps you,

4 wheel drive (auto locking hubs) seems to be trying to engage.


I had the same thing happen. The automatic locking hubs are faulty, causing one or both hubs to try to engage or disengage onto the front driveshaft. This makes the clicking noise and loud clunking that you hear. You may notice your steering pulling to one side of the road,because one hub is locked in. Replace the automatic hubs with new ones, do not try to fix the old ones. I liked the
convience of automatic hubs but replaced mine with manual hubs, there just way more reliable.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub
