Knocking/squeaking noise coming from r/s/n wheel affecting drive

I have just driven my car, and noticed there is a terrible squeaking noise coming from my r/s/n wheel and driving felt a bit like the tracking is out and when i reached just under 60 mph it juddered and made a sort of knocking noise. At this point i felt like the wheel was loose and immediatly pulled over to check, however it wasnt that but looking through the alloy wheel it looks like a metel rod attached to the brake? or somewhere behind the wheel is snapped off at one end. I hope you are able to understand from my description what i mean and are able to give me some much needed advise. I have a renault megane, 1.6 16v T reg. Many thanks, Clare.

Not sure about the metal rod you are speaking of. If it was a tie rod end (which somewhat matches that description) that would cause you to be in an accident before you could ever stop the vehicle. It does however sound just like a CV joint at the wheel end of the drive axle. You do NOT want to drive again until you can have it checked by a mechanic. Ask him about buying an entire axle from an import salvage yard if you are having any income issues. It is possible to find perfectly good joints/axles at much reduced cost over new. They need to know what they are looking for in order for you to benefit though. I hope that helps. Timothy

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

Knocking noise coming from the back of the van when driving


what seals ? do you mean wheel bearing seals ? if so this is a problem that will eventually result in bearing failure and could make wheels come off if let go to failure point ,(takes a long time)

the way you wrote this reminded me of a fellow that just got a brand new van and brought it to me in a fluster one day saying it makes horrible banging noises only when he drives it <not sitting still, I pulled it into service bay and put up on rack , when I took hubcaps off to access the wheels I nearly laughed to death !!! seems his Not so funny neighbor had added a handful of gravel to the inside of his hubcaps for a bit of fun with him !!!

V6 engine knocking and squeaking noise


check for play in the distributor sometimes the slop will make the pick up window under the cap will hit the distributor cap , the squeaking noise may be your belt or tensioner pulley bearing the knock can also come from a bad tensioner as well .

Does squeaking coming from automoble water pump indicate water pump bearing is bad


If you take the belt off and there is no noticeable in/out, up/down, or side to side movement of pulley and there is no noise when rotating, a new belt may be all you need. Make sure you check ALL of the other belt driven components including idler pulleys and belt tensioner pulley. A worn tensioner can squeak also.

Squeaking on 1999 toyota corolla


Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.

I HAVE A KNOCKING NOISE THAT COMES FROM THE WHEEL AREA BUT TRAVELS UP TO THE STEERING WHEEL...AND THE CAR WONDERS ALL OVER THE ROAD WHILE DRIVING


Hi DAVIDHAMMER,
My name is Dennis
and I'm sorry to tell you this but you should check your constant velocity universal joint in the front wheel for wear or failure. If this knocking gets severe that is more noticeable when you turn your front wheels to the far end of travel you may have an expensive problem and this is normally fixed at the dealership.
please rate the solution because i will learn from your rating. Thank you
