Question about 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

I have a clanking noise coming from the right rear tire area. We've taken the tire off and can't find anything loose. It sounds like loose metal clanging around when I drive down a bumpy road. Any suggestions? Counld it be the brake pads or brakes? the noise stops when I apply the brakes when going over bumps.

Clicking noise turning right

Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

My 2004 F150 FX4 is making a terrible noise coming from the left rear tire area. It sounds like dragging metal and broken glass put together. I've searched all over to find the reason for the noise, but...

  1. Could be brake pads that are down to metal.
  2. Could be bearing in the rear end
  3. Could be loose tire that they didn't tighten up properly.
  4. Need more info

Suspension issue jeep

only on right turns?? a smaller tire would have resulted in damage if the rear is a locking type rearend. IF it is a locking rear end I would change the oil, noting the color and how it looks. replace it and add some "slip additive"............. IF its not a locking type axle, maybe a spider gear problem, but thats inside the housing, not out by the wheel. You may need to take the axle out and inspect the axle/ bearing.

Loose wheel, bad bearing, cv joint. in that order to check. Put in four whell drive and turn a sharp circle and it should help isolate, if yu could have someone outside walking beside the area the noise is coming from, I think the most likely thing will be the cv joint.

Clanking noise coming from rear brake drum everytime I brake. What could it be

Parts have come loose in that brake area. Pull it apart and they will fall out. More than likely the hand brake mechanism has slipped out of place.
