Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

My 2004 toyota 4runner is making knocking/rotating noise front drivers side tire. bearing?

Its a 2004 toyota 4runner. It has snowed and iced a bunch in my town and since it has the tire has been making this knocking noise, especially when i turn. About a year ago I had the bearing replaced on that side because it was broken or loose, I dont know (I'm a 24 year old girl and i know nothing about cars) it sounds like a banging noise and I can almost feel the vibrations in my foot under the drivers side. I was planning on taking it into the dealer tomorrow anyway but Im panicking that this may be a serious issue that is going to cost a lot of money like replacing the bearing did.

SOURCE: Grinding noise in the left

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).

SOURCE: Vibration and noise from front end while driving

Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

I posted on here a few months ago trying to determine the source of a grinding noise coming from the front driver's side of my 1999 toyota 4runner 4wd. The noise only occurs when there is a lateral force...


When you replaced the bearings, there are two (inner and outer) did you replace the pressed in Races where the bearings make contact? if it only happens when you make right turns it could also be the caliper there actuating if that brake line is getting in the way. The most common thing I have found in this situation was the splash guard in that wheel well rubbing against the tires due to previous damage from an accident or damaged bushings in the upper A Frame. Lastly, it could be the differential bearing, in most cases it will make this noise for both wheels when it is a Differential bearing but it is possible. The replacement process isn't that hard except for the fact you have to pull the Differential to do it and that is sometimes a real pain because typically you have to drop the whole transmission to do that.

Wicked vibration in front driver side wheel


Make sure the balance weights are still there, they can fall off from time to time. If its not that, jack it up and spin the wheel to see if you have a "flat" spot on the tire. Next grab the tire on the top and bottom and shake it, if there is play in it then the wheel bearing in bad or the ball joints need replacing.

Humming noise in the the front of my truck.


Did you try rotating the tires maybe front to back to see if noise disappears or moves with the tire? Otherwise maybe a wheel bearing.
