If you know which one it is, take it off and see if the clips that hold it to the rim are all intact and not bent

My front wheel on the driver's side is making a rattling sound like it's loose. I checked the lug nuts and they're covered with plastic caps. The plastic caps have flanges that are under the hub cap. I...

Good Evening, this is something I run across alot and mainly it tends to be the hubcaps. And I would first off try to remove the hubcap first an drive it and see if that is the issue, if you still have a rattling noise then investigate further maybe a sway bar link or such. But always look at the obvious first, usually it is something minor that can be overlooked. Take your lug wrench and loosen all the plastic caps and once you have them all loose the hubcap will come off. Hope this helps.

Clicking noise seemingly coming from front driver's side tire. When going really slow, you can hear an alomost spring-like noise

Good morning! If you vehicle is equipped with center caps or hub caps remove them all and drive vehicle to see if noise is still present. Had a few problem hubcaps on these. Your local salvage yard should have these if noise goes away with hubcap removal. Have a great day!

Let's start with the obvious one: junk moving in the trunk. Check that
Next check for loose parts:rear bumper, hood, silencer, taillights, even a hubcap
Worst case: a suspension bush is worn out.

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.

Sounds like rubber bands when you turn left or right

Check for tire rubbing on anything in the fender well. Check to see if maybe a loose hubcap. If not one or both of your CV axles is (are) bad. If the CV axles boots are ripped, this is the likely culpret to your noise and you can pick them up at auto parts store.
