Sounds like a loose or broken brake shoe or brake drum. As the car is slowly moving, pull up on the emergency brake. Does the noise get worse? Better? Can you feel the clunk in the handle of the E brake? This is what it sounds like, but my second choice would be the wheel bearing getting bad. These cars are known for this. If you jacked the car up a bit and wiggled , tugged , and pulled on the wheel, you may find movement there. If so, it is the bearing. . I changed my bearing 3 weeks ago. l series, $51 for the bearing, and $40 to press it in. I took it off the car myself. Very easy to do. If you decide to go that route, I can walk you through it. Hope this is helpful, cheers from Nova Scotia!!

SOURCE: driver's side wheel knocking during a slow sharp turn

I had a simular problem, it turned out to be a CV axle. Check all the inner and outer boots for breakage. It also may be the front differential. Most subaru owners or garages (except a dealer) don't know about the dipstick to check the gear oil in the front differential of an automatic and they end up going dry(diff on a manuel tranie is lubed with the same gear oil as the tranie and usualy dont have this problem). The automatic transmission fluid dipstick is on the driverside near the break cylinder and the gear oil dipstick is on the passenger side of the tranie just above where the CV axle attaches to the tranie(its the same yellow as the oil cap and has a finger loop. If the fluid has not been checked in a long time the stick may be stuck in the tube. If the stick is not reading when you pull it out you will want to drain the old diff fluid to remove any metal shavings produced from running the diff dry and refill with 80w90 gear oil. Good luck, hope it helps.

Have a mechanic check lower control arm bushing at the rear of the control arm.It is a horizontal bushing retained by a vertical bolt clamping it to frame.The tire will move more forward and back more than it should during braking. canuck mechanic.

SOURCE: CRV has knocking sound coming from rear passenger side

inspect the braking system for warped or uneven rotor surface, as this may cause this noise and uneven pad wear. CV joints also could cause this if the boots are torn, have insufficient grease, are damaged,or have worn bearings. Hopefully this helps

Knocking noise from rear end


If car is rear wheel drive.....Check you Universal joints on your driveshaft

Could also be Trailing Arm bushings.if you have coil Springs on your rear axle. These bushings keep the axle from rotating. So when you do that Clutch jumpy thing the axle is trying to rotate and with bad bushings it could be 'banging'

Knocking noise on driver side font on 2005 Yukon.


hello,
with out more info it sounds like it could be the drive axle could be going bad if it's a 4x4 or possibly one of the pins holding the brake caliper in place has backed out and rubbing the inside of the wheel. I would also check the wheel bearings to make sure the wheel is not loose and making the noise you hear.

Knocking noise around the front passenger wheel area!?


Do you feel it in the steering wheel? if so it could be the intermediate steering shaft. If not it could be a sway bar link or bushing.

Ive replaced the cv shaft but the noise is still their...any ideas?


Have you checked the front wheel bearings? I've seen similar problems on several front wheel drive cars. On my first experience, we also started by changing the CV joints only to find it did not solve the problem. We then though it was a transmission problem.... wrong again. Finally checked the front wheel bearings (Both sides) and found the passenger side was making the noise. Bearing replaced (not cheap by the way) but solved the problem.

When backing up 1994 Golf its makes a knocking noise on the drivers side


  • Are you backing strait up when this noise happens? Or are you turning the wheel also? Also is a definite knock of perhaps a more click click click click.? Does this even happen when going forward? When the car is in drive and you put your foot on the brake and go into reverse, do you hear a profound clunk? Please answer the questions posed to help me help you a little better.

My son has a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix, when he's driving it, it's making a knocking noise on the passenger side by the tire. Could it be a suspension or bearing issue?


Try turning the wheel and seeing if the knocking noise gets worse or better.Usually when you get a knocking like that or a clicking when your turning,you need to replace the CV shaft on that side.Sometimes a wheel bearing will make a click but if you jack up the car and can hold the wheel from top to bottom and can wiggle it and feel alot of movement that is the wheel bearing but it is probably the CV shaft making that knocking noise.Good luck
