May be a loose or worn STRUT. Open the hood and look off to either side about in the middle. You will see a bulge in the fender well with a bolt and a washer and a nut on either side. That will be the top of the strut. Push firmly down on a strong place of the body and look and listen. A loose or worn strut will make a noise right then and there. Good luck.

My 2008 nissan armada has a rattle noise coming from the front brake area during driving over uneven road surfaces.


Hi,
Better check the spring and spacer for the disc pad that might have lost or didn't reinstall properly when you replace it with a new pad.
That usually the sound when those small parts are missing.
Hope that helps you out.

Thanks for asking FixYa!

Warning light comes on and off on 1999 audi a4 avant 2.4 v6 and i also have a rattling noise comming from drivers side front mechanic cant find the problem


A flashing check engine light means that there is a misfire in one or more cylinders. If a cylinder is not firing, it will cause uneven power output which can translate to a vibration which could be the cause of your 'rattling noise'.

Hope this helps!

Our 2003 kia spectra has a metalic rattle when you drive over uneven pavement or speed bumps. we ckeck suspension brakes wheel bearings shocks exshaust what is it


The heat shields that are positioned between the exhaust pipe and floorboard or between the exhaust pipe and sensitive electrical components are made of very cheap, thin, tin-like metal. When they rust on one side, one of the tabs comes loose and the whole shield will vibrate especially when accelerating. Since you are getting the noise when you hit a bump, you might check the area where you stow the spare tire (loose tools may be vibrating against the metal). Also the plastic protective pieces behind front bumper sometimes tear and will "flap' against the car and sound like a metallic vibration when you hit a bump especially if you were stuck in snow recently. Look for loose plastic pieces.

Front End Rattling in 2006 Pontiac Pursuit


Sounds like a body weld issue ( as this is a unitized body design). Several US GM models prone to this. No real good cure.

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.
