Sounds like you have a wheel bearing going out. Do yourself a favor and make sure you have all your windows down and someone else to listen for the noise besides yourself just to make sure which wheel the noise is actually coming from

Testimonial: "I had the car at the mechanic today. actually I thought it was a bearing to, but he said the bearings are tight. he thinks there is a flat spot on the drum and turning puts it at just the right angle to make this noise. Possible?"

My mazda 323 1987 sedan has a knock on the front left wheel what seems is da problem


Take it to a parking lot and turn a tight circle to the left and listen for the knock, then turn it to the right and listen for the sound. You can then tell what wheel the noise is coming from. The problem is a CV joint that is bad.

Click click sound coming from left rear wheel when making a right turn


this is an indication of badly worn CV joints. Replace both because the other side will not be far behind it.

Knocking sound from front passenger that worsens when turning and accelerating


CV joint - wheel side needs to be replaced :) right wheel, a lot of people drive like that for a while before they fix it so don't worry, also it shouldn't be soooo expensive

Clicking noise turning right


Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

1990 toyota corolla - knocking (clattering) when turning to the left - sounds like coming from wheel, but then it sounds like it coming from middle of car -


check your cv axles, then check your wheel bearings on both axles by lifting car and shaking you tire left to right, up and down. if there is free play you need to replace front wheel bearings

2002 Mazda Protege 5: I am having a knocking sound coming from my front right of the car.The noise is most noticable when turn right with speed. The noise is also there when driving straight but not all...


I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.

Single knock sound from dead stop or when slowing down


I had the same problem on a brand new 2008 JEEP Patriot. The solution after 2 trips to the dealer was to tighten all the suspension bolts in the front. Note wether your problem is in the front or rear and go to the dealer.
