If the noise only happens when turning and accelerating, probally a failed CV joint, this is on the drive shaft from the gearbox to the front wheels, look under the front of the car behind the wheels there is a shaft with a big rubber boot on it, if the boot is split open and grease everywhere then that joint is stuffed and will require new one.

What is the reason for front grinding when turning


This due to either a worn wheel bearing or a worn front drive arm.

The most common cause of a grinding noise when turning is a worn front wheel bearing. What happens is that the weight of the car is shifted on to that wheel as you make the turn causing the worn bearing to make a grinding noise.

Knocking sound drivers side front during exceleration


Have the CV joints checked on the front axle shaft ends. When they wear out they knock on acceleration.

Makes loud noise


It sounds like one of your CV (constant-velocity) joints is going bad. This is common on front wheel drive vehicles. The CV joint allows the drive axle to pivot as you turn the wheels. Over time the protective boots crack, the grease leaks out and you end up with the knocking noise you describe when turning while accelerating. The dealership should easily be able to inspect the CV joint boot and diagnose the CV joint.

Hi there,

it could be:

>wheels rubbing on inside of wheel arch
>steering linkage hitting something

Try putting the car on a lift/ if you can, and get someone to steer it full lock to full lock both sides whilst you observe the steering mechanism, then you might be able to see what's happening.

Have a nice day :)

The knocking noise sounds like it could be a CVjoint going out. This noise only happens when turning I assume? That would be another shop fix because Ican not tell you on here how to replace it but it needs to get done right away. As far as the seat goes. Could you move it back into the correct place with the operating buttons after it moved you? Was there a chance you setyour purse or some other object down by the control switch that made it move?

Knocking noise more on right side, but left side turns also


Check the boots at the ends of the front axles...If one is torn the joint has likely failed and needs to be replaced.

I hear a knocking noise while driving


Check your outer c/v joints..a torn boot is a dead giveaway for joint failure (boot fails, lets dirt into joint, joint fails) Also since you didn't mention if noise is also preaent standing still, check the exhaust to make sure it's not hitting floor pan anywhere. (most likely the joint though)
