I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

When I turn the steering wheel to make a right hand turn it grinds and clunks.


take a look at the front drive axle joints and also wheel bearings. this noise may be due to a bad ujoint and as you turn the joint binds up and makes noise, same as a bad wheel bearing. the wheel bearing would make more of a grinding noise as it doesnt hold the wheel and brake rotor in place and the rotor may be hitting the caliper bracket so i would start by checking this stuff first. good day.

Grinding noise in 2001 cavalier 2.2 engine replaced left front hub noise is still there. how difficult to replace left cv joint?


If you still think the noise is coming from the left side CV joint it would be more advisable to replace the entire axle as an assembly. For the time and effort it takes, you can usually get a rebuilt axle assembly for only a few dollars more than the CV joint and the boot required to repair one. You will need a large axle nut socket (usually 30 - 32mm) to remove the axle nut. The lower ball joint and tie rod will need to be separated along with the brake caliper and rotor, from the spindle. I would recheck the grinding noise before doing it. A lot of wheel bearings are mistakenly diagnosed to the wrong side. If the noise is loudest when turning left, most people would assume the left side wheel bearing is at fault. However if the noise is loudest turning left it indicates the right side wheel bearing is most likely at fault. Due to the weight distribution of the front end, turning left the weight all transfers to the right side, loading that bearing. Make sure thats not the case before tackling an axle.

I have 2003 Passat with 140K on the clock, 8 months ago it developed a screeching noise turning the wheel left and right when stationary like the belt was screeching. The garage could not see a problem,...


the screeching noise could be rubber deposits on the belt pulley or pulley bearings for the power steering pump BUT its also a big clue that the timing belt tensioner is about to give up...CHECK BOTH please.....

Loud clicking noise when steering wheel is turned in either direction past center. Same noise when travelling over rough road or bumps.


The loud clicking noise you described is most likely a worn CV joint in the axle. The noise on rough roads is likely a ball joint or upper control arm ( there are 4 of them on your passat ) .
I would take your car to an alignment shop for a thorough inspection. Don't take it to a VW dealership , they will overcharge you for the work. They quoted me 3 hours labour to replace an upper control arm ball joint. I did it my self in the driveway in 25 minutes.

Can't be 100% sure but if you didn't have this problem before doing the work on the wheel bearing I can only think 1 of two things. When they removed your whhel bearing the sensor ring for the abs got damaged or the abs sensor is damaged or not pressed into place in the knuckle. The front sensors are not screwed on, they just have a little sleeve and at time with the vibrations of doing a wheel bearing they get loose. You most probally won't have an abs fault due to these problems.

Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.
