Question about 2006 Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

Right rear wheel is played out to the side.

My wife just got home, backed the RAV in and heard a 'clunk' and it appears that the axel or supporting hardware has failed and the wheel is splayed out to the side.

Front or rear wheel?
i suspect the front and with power steering it is possible to snap the connecting rod of the steering mechanism it will need replacement and re-allignment the car is not longer driveable and will have to be transported to the garage for repair. it was either weakened at some previous point if one wheel gets trapped by a bollard or a wall or in a rut in the road then one day it will just go like that. it is not the wifes driving it is the car being used for what it is designed for a bit of rough.

Grinding metal sound over 30 mph


I believe that your Subaru has a transmission issue. There are quite a few things that will make a grinding noise. Wheel bearings, worn out brakes, damaged brake rotors or drums, loose or damaged brake calipers, defective hardware kit (for the brake shoes), torque converter, flywheel, U-joints, and CV joints. The interesting part of your symptoms is that you can only hear the grinding between 30-60MPH. I think you need to continue testing and inspecting components, one by one. You have all ready narrowed your search down. You know that the Brakes, CV joints, and Bearings are fine. So now you need to focus on the drive train. Inspect as much as you can from the flywheel, to the transmission, the drive shaft and rear axel, and the output shaft and front drive axel. If you can not find it yourself it may be time to send it in for repair. Let me know if you have any questions or new information, good luck.

Rear end??


No not both sides. The rear end of your car has a normal standared rear axel. it has many seals but if the ones at the wheel hubs on the outside of the axel behind the tires are leaking it would only show on one side or the other. Also most leaks in this area is due to a bad wheel bearing.

The rear Drivers side axel has play.


I would certainly replace the axle with play. But this may not be all. Could be wheel bearing as well.

Front end clunk


If it's a constant clunking noise it might be the cv joints, a one time clunk would indicate play between the steering rack and and the wheel somewhere, probably on the lower control arm, meaning the bushes are either very worn, or not present anymore. It could be the bushes on the swing-arm aswell. Best bet: Jack the car up on the right side and grab the wheel, **** it around abit, and check for play.Hope that helps!

Front wheel seems about to fall off


It sounds like the Bearings are out on that Wheel. You Could have caused damage to the Spindle in addition. Not a Cheap Fix by any Means. Check the Bearings and Spindle for Breakage.
