Knocking noise when cornering

If you can figure out what side it is coming from, it is probably the velocity joint in the half shaft (drive shaft) going to the wheel. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

I believe i have an axle problem every time i put it in gear and lose all power theres hard banging noise ect.

Your cougar is a front wheel drive and the axles are called cv joints. Under your car going to each front wheel is a metal rod with a rubber boot at each end. Under each boot is the joint that allows the wheel to move up and down side to side while putting power to the tire. If your boots get torn, water and dirt destroy these cv joints. You can jack up the front of the car and with the motor off and trans in neutral, turn the front tires to see where the damage is at. Replacing the joints on fords takes special tools.

Hi my Hyundai Accent makes a clunk noise sometimes when going round a corner. It's not every time. Any ideas? It has just passed it's MOT last month and it wasn't doing it before the MOT.

If it makes a clunk-clunk-clunk sound while turning, it's your front CV joint that's bad. Check to see if the front CV rubber boot is ripped/torn, on either side of the car. The CV boots are located inside/behind the wheels, where the drive axle hooks up to the wheel. If damaged, you will probably have to replace the entire CV axle.

Where is the cv joint

Hello harborviewdo. My name is Roger and i will answer your question. Your vehicle has two drive axle half shafts. One on each side of the transmission. The out board side of each shaft is called the outer cv joint. Generally when they are bad you will find the outer boot is torn and has thrown the grease out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know it was helpful. Thank you for using Fix Ya. Roger

On left turns there's a clicking or rubbing sound coming from left front wheel?

Without seeing and hearing the noise in person I can only speculate as to the actual cause of the problem. The issue is more than likely caused by one of the two following failures: 1. A failed CV axle boot on the drivers side nearest the wheel. 2. (less likely) A failing drivers side hub bearing. To me, however, your complaint describes to a "T" a bad CV axle. CV stands for constant velocity. This type of drive axle was designed for front wheel drive applications in order to allow the axles driving the front wheels to not only adapt to uneven road surfaces but also pivot with the steering knuckles to steer the vehicle while maintaining rotational speed. To achieve this CV axles use special joints at either end called trunions. These joints are lubricated with a thick grease which is contained by rubber boots. In your case the boot closest to the driver's front wheel has torn open allowing the grease to be thrown from the joint during driving. This joint, now unlubricated, has dried out and collected debris from the road. Making otherwise silent operation a disturbing load affair, especially when it is put under maximum stress ie a left hand turn.

Grinding noise when turning a bend

if the grinding happens when you turn the wheel while moving and not while turning the wheel when stationary chances are you have a bad cv axle. you can check it by locating the cv boot on the front axles. (a rubber piece that goes around the outside of the cv axle. move and expand the rubber boot and check for cracks in it generally they go bad when the boot is cracked or torn and dirt and sand gets in the teeth of the cv axle and wear it out.
