Your mechanic is an idiot if he calls a rattle normal. see service bulletin 04-02-35-006 the dealer can look at your car and see if it applies.

Any suggestions on fixing front end noise in my 2005 Chrysler 300:


When you replaced the struts they should have changed strut mounts also, that is where noise comes from, check your reciept.
Also, I have seen mounts, tie rod ends and ball joints loosen over a period of time, so have all your bolts and nuts rechecked for looseness.

Any suggestions on fixing Front end clunking noise on 05 Chrysler 300?


I quit the Chrysler dealership aroung 2001, so I am not familiar with that model, however dodge/Chrysler did have issues with sway-bar links/ball joints/tie rods over the years. your clunking could be from any of these items or from the upper strut swivel plates. hard to tell without my assometer in it.

i would hazard a guess and say its the electric power steering pump ,best advice is too leave well alone as it will cost a lot of money to put right and its not dangerous or anything just a bit of wear on a valve .

Sound like you may need a new power steering pump or rack and pinion. Have you noticed any leaks from the vehicle? If you've had the vehicle for 21yrs, then I would have to go with the power steering pump is begining to fail. Hope this helps.

Possible Strut Problem....Is My Husband Right??


I dont know what kind of "tests" they could have done....But find a front end shop and tell them what happened and have them find the source of the rattle. Check the sway bar links, check for anything bent. Is the steering wheel straight? does the van now drift to one side or the other when the steering wheel is released while driviving? You coul dhave a bent strut. if so replace the pair and have a alignment done. Go to a independent repair shop not any type of Chain Store (midas, meinke, goodyear, firestones, tires r us ect.)

Front End Rattle


I am guessing it is still under the factory warranty. Take it to the dealership and have them fix it for free.

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...


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!

Front end rattle


It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.

Rattle/clunk front end of a 2001 grand caravan


Front stabilizer/sway bar bushings sound worn. I had same, on my 91'. Felt like someone was thumping the floor under my feet sometimes. I managed to get away with spinning the outer ones at control arms, but replaced ones in middle at frame.
