My 04 avalanche makes a clinking noise In front underneath when I hit a bump?


dose it speed up and down when you drivings, it could be you have caught the splash guard onto the brake disc and its catching, if its the wheel baring you need to jack up the side with the wheel still on and turn wheel round check for the sound if now sound, grab wheel at 9 to 3 and shack the wheel feeling for movement should be just a tiny bit with no sound. then do the same at 12 and six if there is a lot of movement the bearing will need replacing same if it makes a clunking sound.

Why is the rear end on driver side making on clinking noise?


Jack the vehicle up by the pumpkin and use kickstand to support. Turn the wheel back and forth and you d should be able to isolate. It sounds like a gear in reared or wheel bearing

I can think of two things not easily seen that can cause a banging when hitting small bumps;
The sway bar end links could be loose or broken.
The rear shock bolts, the lower bolt that holds the shock onto the rear axle, I've seen that mounting hole down there get enlarged, allowing the shock bolt to move about when hitting small bumps, causing a banging sound.
Check those two things out.

MWhere is the noise elimantor for the radio sometimes when I am driving and hit a bump the sound of the engine comes into the radio speakers I have to shut the radio off it is so loud


Hello! Engine noise is removed via shielded cable...The shields are then grounded to the chassis...They are loose or corroded at the contact point...Rather than hunt for its location...You can ground it to the floor pan...If your vehicle is equipped with the Premium sound system...Pins #3 and #7 on the 8 pin radio connector are the shields...Splice two runs of 10 gauge Green wire to each of these pins and connect both ends to a ring connector...Solder connections...Bolt ring connector to the floor pan...Insure contact point is bare metal...

Hi, I have opel corsa 1.4. Recently i faced a problem that if if there is at least three person (including driver) then during running a tortling noise comming from the right side of the back whenevr it...


the best way to find out what it is would be to have the 3 people in the car while gently pushing down on the car simulating a pot hole or bump and inspecting how the exhaust & shocks in that area where you hear the noise, are fitting. It sounds as if when the weight of the extra passengers is in the vehicle, probably your exhaust pipe/muffler/tailpipe is now closer than usual to another body part & when you hit bumps or pot holes, the extra force caused makes it bump or rub.

Generaly there should always be 1" of exhaust clearance from other parts. There could also be a problem with the shock/strut when the extra weight is placed on it. The noise should actually point you in the best direction & you should look for shiny spots on metal, pipes or things that appear to be capable of rubbing. Sometimes, the muffler /exhaust will lose one or more of the rubber O-rings it is supported by and that allows it to swing & bump making noise. Good luck.
