Question about 2006 Cadillac CTS

1 Answer

There is a rattle or creaking sound in the front driver's side wheel area. It's not really bad all of the time, but it is much worse in damp, rainy weather. When I go over rough roads, I can hear it and when I brake to a stop it will creak as it stops. I can also mildly feel these "rattles or creaks" in the steering wheel and the gas/brake pedals as I drive. Under warrenty, the dealership replaced the steering gear, link or bushings on the front stabilizer shaft and a caliper pin. This has still not fixed the problem. I took it back to the dealership and they told me that the suspension was working right, everything was tight and it must be tire noise. Do you have any suggestions?

Take it to a goodyear tire store or a other tire and brake store. midas where ever that offer free brake inspection. the bolts might be loose that holds the caliper on. don't let them fix it, just get a writen estimate. they want to find the problem so they can fix it. the dealer wants you to go away till the warrantee is out!

Creaking sound


If it is really cold then the rubber insulators that are between the sub-frame and the body may be a bit loose and allowing movement. It may be worn / hard suspension rubbers squeaking under acceleration. Check the whole of the front of the car looking for rusted areas in the body and sub-frame that may be allowing body movement where there should be none.
