Front is making noise when I turn


Kim:

Check your wheel bearings and ball joints. Checking the wheel bearings: stand next to the front tire, crouch down, put your hands on the top of the tire, and try to rock the top of the tire by pushing the top of the tire away from you and pulling the top of the tire toward you (rock it hard and fast). do both front tires. Any noise or sideways movement of the tire is bad, (Bearings are worn) and needs to be repaired. Then, stand at the front corner of the car, and push down on the front corner of the car repeatedly (rocking the corner of the car up and down (Rock it up and down Hard) If you hear the popping noise your ball joints need to be replaced. If these tests don't work but you still get the popping noise when you drive, take the car to a mechanic. Popping noises from the front end of a car is dangerous. If anything happens up there, you could lose your steering!

Hi my Hyundai Accent makes a clunk noise sometimes when going round a corner. It's not every time. Any ideas? It has just passed it's MOT last month and it wasn't doing it before the MOT.


If it makes a clunk-clunk-clunk sound while turning, it's your front CV joint that's bad. Check to see if the front CV rubber boot is ripped/torn, on either side of the car. The CV boots are located inside/behind the wheels, where the drive axle hooks up to the wheel. If damaged, you will probably have to replace the entire CV axle.

Makes a growling sound from the right passenger side especially when you make a right turn.


Sounds like a wheel bearing or possibly a cv joint. If the noise gets louder the faster you get it's a wheelbearing if it only does it going round tight corners it's probably a cv joint

T4 Transporter 1992 Our camper van has started making high-pitched beeping sounds especially when going round corners. It sounds like a warning - do you know what it means? What should we do about...


Hi! The first thing to do is to run a diagnostic check on the van. On the diagnostics it will show faults and from there we can do the fix. Let me know what it says when its done. Hope this helps and take care.

I have a grinding noise near the back drivers side wheel it comes and goes sometimes whilst driving and driving at low speeds it also happens when i go round corners. There is a burning smell near rear...


Sounds like a broken bearing. If your wheel is beginning to wobble it will make contact with the brake shoes and this will them very hot to the point of giving off a burning smell

Front end makes noise when driving down the road, front brakes were just replaced but not the rotors, could they be warped


Locate an overpass. Drive slowly under it and open the front window and listen for the noise.If you hear a growling noise its the wheel bearings. Do the same for the rears only this time open the rear windows. You can also lift the vehicle offf the ground and spin each wheel and listed for the growling. Rotors don't make noise they usually give you a pulsating pedal if they are out of round.

How to identify source of rumbling noise when car is moving.


My daughter has a 2001 Focus with similar sound, problem.  Just drove it from Portland Oregon to Newport Oregon approx. 140 miles.  Hwy. 20 the route from I-5 to the coast has some pretty sharp corners.  There was this knot head behind me tailgating.  So,coming into the sharp corners I decided to accelerate hard through the corners to gain some distance away from the guy.  Well guess what?  45-50 mph into a 25 mph right hand corner and the noise totally stopped for a few seconds.  I did this again and the same thing...no noise! So, on the next left hand corner I powered into it. The noise increased.  I had the back seats down as well, carting a surf board, which allowed the noise level to be established that it was from the rear of the car.  With the seats up it was impossible to tell where the noise was coming from; But down clearly from the rear.  Now, going through those sharp corners, the right hand corner throws weight to the left front wheel and the right rear tire tends to lift releasing weight pressure on the bearing resulting in the no noise event.  Thus I am absolutely convinced that it is a bearing failure in the passenger side rear wheel. Quit by accident to have stumbled onto this today...amazing!  Now, Looking for directions on how to replace the bearing which is how I stumbled onto this post.  Have a good one!!!

Knocking trom font of car when....


sounds like a cv axle noise i have found you cant change inner without outer, for the time spent you should replace the axle as a whole,,much easier too. front wheel drive cars are hard on front end bushings and etc. the coil springs seem to sqirm in there saddles when they get old too making creaking noises, no big deal on ford escort, tempo, topaz, sable,,,,,
