Check the velocity joint maybe you need to replace it and also check the wheel bearing. And also check the lug knot of the wheel make sure it is fix.

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning


Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Everytime I turn slowly I hear this creaking sound. The ride is smooth my steering wheel is great. My power steering is capped off. I dont know what the problem could be. I don't hear it right off when I...


I had a similar problem on my 2002 Escape, but it was also creaked when cold. It turned out to be an outer tie rod joint. It may also be a lower ball joint. My creaking would happen when turning the steering wheel even a quarter turn. I reached behind the tire and put my hand on the tie rod while my wife slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could feel the very obvious vibration. Try the other side to see if you can feel the difference. Can you hear it when standing outside the car, and tell which side?

When turning left or right steering makes a creaking noise mainly from drivers side wheel, also when stationary drivers side makes creaking noise when pushing down on the wing, after the car has cooled...


This sound is coming from your strut. Sometimes they will get water in the seals, or dirt, and they will start creaking exactly as you describe. This isn't a big problem unless you can't live with it, and if this is the case, just replace the strut on that side. When the car bounces when you press on that side, then you need to worry about that strut, but otherwise, it's ok.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Creaks when turning wheel rt. side 80,000 miles


You need to replace the universal/cv joint, that's the bit on the end of the drive shaft that articulates the turn of direction, while still turning the hubs.
It should have a rubber surround, (which no doubt is split), called a gator, which holds all the grease necessary to lubricate the joint.
Prices can vary quite dramatically.
Once replaced, the noise will disappear.

1994 Ford Taurus creaking left front


I think you are right. The strut or strut mount bearings on the top of the strut could be making noise. The shop might try and rip you off with additional repairs for the control arms,control arm bushings, or steering parts. I would take the vehicle to a reliable shop.
