Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent
I have a noise coming from my rear left wheel , like a donk sound can see where it is coming from ?
It is a Hyundai accent 1997 1.3
Also the reversing lights don't work ant the fuses are ok and the lights are fine too .
Any help please
First thing check if lugs are all tight and inspect the tire for foreign objects stuck in it.
if ok then jack the car up until the tire is off the ground then see if you can wobble the tire side to side if it moves or wobbles at all the bearings are bad. get them replaced immediately. this could lead to wheel loss and or possibly death from accident.
if by chance it isn't the bearings then spin the wheel and listen for noises.check the brakes pull up the emergency brake one click at a time and try to spin the wheel if it makes noise the brakes and or rotors are worn and need replacing. if it spins freely on one click of the handle then chances are you need to rep[lace the breaks. it should be difficult to turn or provide resistance.
if not try two clicks of the handle or pedal until you find resistance in spinning the wheel.
if you find resistance make sure it is constantly even all the way around if it gets easy then hard to turn then easy with every rotation then you have a warped rotor or hub.
replace as necessary.

Hello, Rob is it a consistent sound or repetitious sound per wheel revolution, of it's the later one its most likely your rear wheel bearing that needs to be replaced. As far as the reverse lights, you may have to take a led tester to the rear and see if it's getting any juice from your fuse box, even though your fuse looks okay, there may be a break in line. Just make sure that it's the correct amp fuse that is required.
