Question about 2000 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

Front wheel squeak when making right turns

My car makes a chirp/squeak sound in the driver's front end, I'm assuming it's the wheel, because it happens whenever I steer to the right and I hear it loud and clear. It sounds like metal on metal and occurs at all speeds. Once I turn the car a slight right and the wheels are no longer straight, you hear it. I don't know much about cars, except it's extremely irritating!! What's going on with my car??!

If it is the front end, it may be the shocks or the supports. You should lube all your wheel bearings, joints, and tie rods to see if that helps.

My 94 mercury grand marquis makes a very loud squeaking noise when i turn the steering wheel or hit a bump, it sounds like its coming from the passenger front.


There are several possibilities that could be causing your problem.
  • Low on power steering fluid
  • Bad steering box
  • Bad tie rod end
  • Bad ball joints
Assuming the power steering fluid is full, bring the car to any brake shop or repair shop that does front end alignments to diagnose the problem further. I hope you find this points you in the right direction. Thank you for using Fixya! Greg

1997 Buick LeSabre has squeak noise coming from right front.


More likely this is a wheel bearing or CV joint than suspension components.

One good indication is if, when your making a right turn or accelerating, there is a shudder or shaking in the steering wheel then its likely a wheel bearing.

Another good indicator can be found when you jack up the suspicious wheel. Put one hand on the top of the wheel and one on the bottom and pull back and forth. If the wheel makes a clunking noise and moves in either direction, then wheel bearing is shot.

more than likely your power steering pump check it's level if it's low or really dark take it to have it looked at, if not then check your belt if it's getting streached it will slip when your turning the wheel and using pressure from the powersteering pump. hope this helps
