Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Open Question

My 2006 pt cruiser has a rattling noise while driving everytime a bump in the road is hit? Someone mentioned I have a bad "hime joint?" Could this be a fact?

Once when my car was on a lift in the air, I witnessed a gentleman gently shake the bar that joins the two back tires, this bar seemed loose. Is this part of the "hime joint?"

there is a pivot point for your rear sway bar called the watts linkage that wears out the center bushing and will cause a rattle or clunk

SOURCE: Weird noise from my '01 PT cruiser.

It's possible that the you have "cupped" tread on a tire or two. After rotation you may hear it. Look at the outer edges of all of the tires for an uneven tread wear. Sometimes it takes a little driving to **** this down. If no luck here, I would stop back at the garage to have them verify there isn't a safety issue.

2006 pt cruiser making scraping noise when wheel turning to the right


is it a scraping noise or a clicking noise. a scraping noise could indicate a brake noise when turning have the brakes checked in the front. if its a clicking noise only when turning to the right then you may have a bad cv joint on the right half shaft. replace the half shaft assembly.

Noise rattling


Too many to say just one but I can gif you a few things to look at. First would be the tie rods and ball joints. Then there is the end link pin. Calipers will make a rattle noise as well. My bet here is the ball joints though.

I have a 2003 pt that makes noise from the front end when you hit a bump in the road


I have a pt cruiser myself and love it but they have a problem with lower control arm bushings that wear out allowing the control arm to drop and smack on the sub frame. For the most part this is not dangerous unless the bushings are completely deteriorated.Also sway bar link pins rattle when they get worn. This is the lesser of two evils for the fix is alot cheaper i hope this helped:)

A banging noise when going over bumps? I'd guess the lower control arm bushings are worn. This is relatively common, and would exhibit this symptom.

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.

This is either caused by a wore out strut/shock in the rear of the car or a broken spring.
