If your car is a front wheel drive, use two bricks or two 5 inch piece of a 4 inch by 4 inch wood to block the rear wheels. use a hydraulic jack, place it underneath the car, resting on the frame (usually the frame is a few inches from the front door, underneath the car just behind the front wheel) so as not to damage any weaker metal structure. raise one of the two front wheels and place a jack stand underneath the car, resting on the frame. Slowly lower the car and let the jack stand support the weight of the car. Repeat the step on the opposite side of the front of the car. turn the car on hold the brake and put it in gear.control the speed of the wheel with the brake do not give it any gas unless it is a standard. listen for the sound to see where it is coming from. The most important part is make sure the jack stands are level on the ground and the car does not rock, that is to say both of the front wheels are evenly lifted.

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front end

Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy cavalier makes a ''knocking'' sound

You have outer CV joint bad on the right side, suggest you replace both sides with complete rebuilt axles you can get at any discount autoparts stores... some of them can even do the repair for you... replace seals, axles and align, be done with it and have a peice of mind... not to exepensive a couple hundred bucks...sometimes what happens is the rubber boot on the CV joint tears and throws its grease out every where around the wheel well, look for grease splatter, a good clue....

My 2011 Nissan Sentra makes a slight creaking noise whenever I back out of parking spaces by turning the steering wheel to the extreme right or left. Specifically, the noise comes after I start rolling...


is the creaking coming from the front or rear of the vehicle? if its in the front, it could be a bad strut. 2011? the vehicle should be under manuf. warranty. take it into the dealer and they should fix it for free and even put you in rental car if the vehicle has to stay for an extended period of time. make sure you are under 36,000 miles for the manuf. warranty to apply. good luck!

Replaced front brake pads and also two studs Drivers side only, on 2001 nissan altima GLE . After driving about 20 to 30 miles the drivers side starts making a noise similar to a smog pump bearing noise ....


Well this is tricky. I have no idea what this could be except for the bearings. The reason I suspect this is because turning and braking will change the pressure you put on each wheel, so reducing or increasing pressure on that specific wheel could make a new noise.

Steering creeks when turning left or right. front wheel noise.


My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.

I hit a bump on the right front side and it makes a roaring type noise and shimmies a bit .. can feel it under my left foot. also at times it will make that soud when i make a right hand turn... it is ...


Sounds like your left front wheel bearing is going bad. When you make a right turn, or compress the right front suspension over a bump, it forces the car to roll to the left. This loads the suspension on the left side, which will exaggerate a wheel bearing problem. Are you hearing the noise at all when travelling on the highway in a straight line? If so, it'd be either a grinding sound or a hollow humming noise. If you aren't, it may be that the bearing is just starting to go bad.

A quick test to see if the bearing is bad is to jack the car up at that corner, grab the wheel at the top and bottom, and shake it hard - if there is any movement or looseness, your bearing is shot. If there is none, it doesn't mean the bearing is fine, but it could be that it's just starting to go bad (which would be why you only hear it in turns and bumps, but not straight-line yet).
