2005 Mini Cooper, 5-speed--Loud noise in front wheel

My Mini is making this loud clacking noise, sounds like it is coming from the front driver wheel. It does it when the car is just driving forward and gets quiet when I make turns. When I first started hearing the noise it would come & go & it wasn't that load....now it is all the time & very load. What do you think it could be?

SOURCE: the top on my 2005 mini cooper s will not go down .

often times this problem ends up needing a front sunroof section of the conv top replaced. The cable that drives the hooks to unlatch is most likely broken and that is currently the only fix. EXPENSIVE. Sorry

SOURCE: 2005 mini cooper has loud

I had a similar issue and it ended up being a broken wheel bearing. I even ended up having two, one was broken on my front passenger side, and one broken on my rear driver side. The part costs about $280.00, but could cost around $400.00 with service repair. The noise of a broken wheel bearing can sound like a humming, and over time it becomes louder. The car can be driven with a broken wheel bearing, but doing so can eventually lead to other wheel/tire maintenance. MINI's endure this commonly due to their low profile to the ground. Here is a forum on further issues experienced, including the bearing, and efforts towards recalls. http://newmini.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/mini-cooper-power-steering-failure/#comment-884

See if you can find the schematics (a wiring diagram for your entire car, or simply the component involved.) You can then use a multimeter and check each wire for a short.

My ram 1500 makes loud clacking noises and it gets worse when the t-case is locked in four wheel drive hoping it's the tcase and not the front end but not sure how can I tell


I suspect that it is "U" joints or cv joints that is the problem
remove drive shafts and lock the t case in 4x4 and see it it makes the noise
refit the rear drive shaft after checking joints and if still no noise connect the front shaft. if the "U" joints checked out then it could be the joints in the drive axles at the pivot point ball
remove a hub drive plates and see if the noise is there
if it isn't then I would consider the joints in the axle shafts to be candidates for repair /replacement
it all has to do with the torque wind up when in 4x4 and any worn or failing joint will clack as it tries to work

When I accelerate forward from a comp stop my car makes a loud grinding/screeching by the front driver side. Once running the noise stops but until it catches speed it makes the sound. What is that?


It could be several things, and I'm going to assume that the vehicle is front wheel drive.

First possibility is the constant velocity joint on the driver's side is worn out.

Second possibility is the wheel bearing on the driver's side.

As to the shaking at 70+mph, you may have an alignment problem, or some issues with the suspension components on that side of the car.

Does the noise get worse when accelerating from a stop, and turning, at the same time?

Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Whinning noise when engine is off


Whinning Causes
The whining noise you hear coming from the power steering pump is one of three things. The first is more of a loud "hush" than a whine; this is the sound of fluid rushing through the bypass valve when you turn the wheel all the way to one side or the other. Sometimes the bypass valve malfunctions or doesn't open all the way, causing pressure to back up in the pump and cause your engine rpm to drop. The second and third causes result from cavitation -- vacuum pockets created behind the rotor's vane blades as a result of extremely high pump action -- or air in the lines.

Very loud sound from steering pump motor


Depending on the vehicle type, check the power steering fluid. Make sure it's full up to the mark on the stick. If it's full, it's a bad pump.
