Question about 2005 Hyundai Accent
When driving there is a load rotary clunk
Sounds like a worn ball joint, or a worn top strut mount. They have bearings in them and are known to go. To check the ball joint, jack car up only 3inches. While you look underneath have someone pry the front wheel up and down with a steel bar or something like that. Make sure you use blocks or jack stands for sure!!. The ball joint is at the bottom, and one at the top. Look close for any movement. In the air this should be noticable if it's bad. . Also get someone to grab the tire and wiggle it every which way. The best way to check the top strut mount is to look under the hood, you will see where your struts are bolted on. One big nut in the center, and three or four nuts around the outside. While car is on the ground look at this area while someone turns the steering wheel. if this is getting bad, you should hear it, or see too much movement. Not easy to tell sometimes unless you take the whole strut off, but these cars are known for this problem Keep me informed and if you see the problem feel free to ask questions. I can walk you through it. Please rate this solution
