I have replaced several worn parts on this car. This noise was there before repairs and is still there. I have had the tires balanced and rotated, replaced both cv half shaft axle assemlies, hub bearing assemlies on all for corners, new rotors and pads. Also I am getting a wheel speed senser code on the info center. The abs, and traction control light comes on at times, and I get a (service stability system) message in the info center. The thumping noise is my main concern and getting louder. Please help! Thanks, Mike
I had similar problem with my eldo...The clunk(sounds like a stick hitting the bottom of the car) in the front end turned out to be stabilizer bushings, kinda pricey and the Light your getting sounds like you have a bad connection where the speed sensors connect behind the rear hubs, I also had that problem, I accidentally hit the clips when I changed the brakes and all the same symptoms..Good luck

check front-end out, immediately, could be a bad bushing/ control arm, this would need attention, asap, you could lose control of vehicle, or somethingelse is broken, shock, but the control arm / bushing is my bet. get it repaired, unsafe condition !!!
Have you had this listened to or driven by a front end repair person, they are very good at noises, i think this is a worn part that causes this, just can't remember which one, the dealer is your best choice here.
This could be several possible problems. Most likely is a stabilizer that ties the A frame to the chassis. This an easy replaced part and less than $ 100 typically. You should jack it up,black it and inspack the front suspension parts to locate a problem.
look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over. Good luck
Okay, I had a problem like this with my 1990 Jetta, except there was no thumping noise. My steering wheel started to shake, that also make the whole front end wobble back and forth (side to side) - I took to a mechanic and had both whell bearing replaced. I must tell you that wheel bearing aren't something a mechanic can just check to see if they're good; once they get in there, it's a matter of just putting new ones in. Now, while different makes and models vary as far as cost of repair, (as well as mechanics prices) I paid a mere $400 dollars for my Jetta, which is a foreign made care, which also tend to cost more to fix than American made cars. Regardless, this is what it sounds like may be the problem with your vehicle. You may want to take it to a shop that specializes in alignments and brakes. It could be a loose brake caliper in the front. My brother had a car that was doing that same things, so we took the (front right) tire of, and he was missing both bolts that hold the brake caliper in place. Notice if the car brakes normally or not and if the shake increases, decreases or stays the same. If and when you take it to a mechanic, be sure to give them as much full detail as to what the car is doing so they can diagnose the issue as best as they can. This will save you from spending money on any unecessary parts and labor.
Sounds like worn suspension components. First, look at the tie-rods beind the wheel, If theres excessive play or real easy to move inplace, than it's bad. Also look at the bushings along the top and bottom of the independant links. Also, check the strut, its the cheapest repair and is most likely the problem.
yes it is possible, it is possible the rotor was not turned properly and it is out of round but it is also possible the hub bearing on passenger side is going out also.you should lift car and ssee if wheel is flexing up and down and side to side
