You might want to check out the CV joint on the left side. If you are well enough mechanically inclined it should be an easy job. You must take off the hub and brake assembly. there should also be a large nut on the hub that you have to take off. after that you have to pull it out of the transmission. might have to get a crowbar to pry the rear of it out. and after you fix it make sure you lube it up good or it will go out, and then you wont be too happy and it will be clicking again in no time.

2011 camry noise left front wheel when turning


Is it a "clicking" sound?
3 clicks per tire revolution?
It may be a worn out CV joint but on a 2011?

Is it a "grumble/rumble" sound?

Would you call it a "squeak"?

Can you describe the noise,please?

2005 F-150 sounds like front wheel bearing is bad. turn to the left and sound is bad. turn to the right and no noise


Looks like it's time for a right wheel bearing, or however many there are in the hub. I'm assuming you do not have a 4 wheel drive. Remember, if it makes noise when turning left, you are "loading" the right wheel bearing. ( Shifting more weight to the side inside your turn). Think this way. When turning left at a higher speed, the left tire might even come up off the ground! That puts all the weight on the right. If you've 4 wheel drive, could also be c.v. joints, or universal joints.

I have a 2004 corolla that has a humming noise in the front when turning to the right.replaced the right front wheel bearing and noise still there.any ideas?


It's most likely the left wheel bearing that's causing the noise, when turning to the right the weight of the car shifts to the left placing more load on the left wheel bearing and takes load off the right bearing.

Key won't come out of the ignition, even after I press the button in the steering column


Your steering wheel is turned to hard to left or right, lightly turn away from the left or right to remove key. if not shake steering wheel like mad to the left and right and turn key and remove.

Grinding noise changes with speed stops when turned right. replaced left front wheel bearing. noise is still there. whats wrong ?


Does sound stop when you turn LEFT?

Turning RIGHT puts the heavy load on the LEFT front wheel.
That initially STOPPED the noise, correct? So why did you change L?

Turning LEFT puts the load on the RIGHT. Did you change the RIGHT?

Let's say this:
If turning RIGHT stops the noise, it's the RIGHT one that's likely bad.
If turning LEFT stops the noise, it's the LEFT one that's more likely bad.

Make sense? Turning RIGHT loads the LEFT wheel; and vice-versa as the WEIGHT SHIFTS AWAY FROM THE TURN.

More than likely it is what some folks call a CV joint problem, not wheel bearings. Try backing up and then going forward to see if "clunking sound" or a sharp "bang" is heard. Wheel bearings and CV joints only work if smooth. Sometimes a BEARING RACE is bad. Also, a bad spindle / part of the CV joint / transaxle assembly worn or badly machined. If in a WET ENVIRONMENT especially, u may want to try marine grade grease or teflon-added grease.




Does sound come from POWER STEERING PUMP area?

Noise in front wheel how do i know its the wheel bearing?


if the tires are not rough or cupped then it would be a bearing. If you steer right and it gets louder, 90% of the time it is the left one . Turning right puts more vehicle weight to the left. if it gets louder turning to left it is the right bearing. Tire noise wont change a lot when turning.
