Wheel bearing is bad and will need to be replaced. This is a somewhat easy job if you are comfortable with mechanics, but you will need to remove a lot of parts to get at the bearing. You can get a new bearing at your local auto parts store. Please rate

A bad cv joint. Look under the car on the inside of the front wheel. There will be a shaft extending from the transaxle to the wheel hub with black rubber accordion boots on either end of it. Look for the boot for breaks or cracks. Look around the area for wheel bearing grease (very thick and sticky) to be splattered all over. Sometimes the boot is intact and the joint may still go bad but cv joint has an 8 hour life once the boot breaks. Replace the cv joint and boots. Buy a rebuilt one from your local parts store. They will be affordable and reliable.

I have a 1997 Ford explorer. There is a funny clicking noise coming from the driver side front. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like a kid riding his bike with a playing card on the tire


If you have front wheel drive the clicking when car is in motion only could be a cv joint on its way out. They never leave this world quietly, and when they finally go, you stop going!

2010 Nissan Altima clicking sound front driver's side while driving


Since the sound gets louder the faster you go, it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. You could try putting the spare on the back and see if it helps. If you can get the front of your car off the ground, spin your wheel with one hand and with the other hand, grab ahold of your coil spring on your strut. If you feel a vibration on the coil, than more than likely you have a bad wheel bearing.

When I pass 25 - 30 mph my car suddenly sounds like an airplane. It makes no sound when at a stop, only when in motion going past 30. at times it feels like it may be vibrating.


Hi, sounds like a bad wheel bearing, possible tire noise, if you can identify or narrow down which end of the car (front or rear) its coming from you can rotate your tires(front to back) and test drive and see if the sound moves to opposite end now. If not you can use a stethoscope or long screw drivers and spin each wheel by hand (vehicle not running!) and listen for a humming grinding sound while tires are off ground via a lift or jack.

I have a ticking noise that sounds like it is coming from the tires; as if you put a baseball card on a bicycle tire to make it sound like it was clicking, that is what it sounds like.


Sounds like you may have a nail or 2 in your tire (perhaps gravel). As it goes around it taps the ground making click noise.. However.. since you said - sounds like a card on a bicycle - means to me to be fast clicking, it may be a broken wheel bearing. If so it should be addressed immediately as it could destroy the whole bearing assembly.

The front left side wheel when running keeps on making a noise like wok wok wok wok wok


The disc brake could be rusted up or out of round or is rough. Recommend that at the next brake job, have the rotors replaced or machined.

Also, a problem could exist with the bearings.

Intermittent clicking from passenger side front wheel at low speeds regardless of tire position


Check these:
1. Check for a rock, screw, nail, etc in the tread of the right front tire.
2. Jack up the right front wheel and manually spin it to listen for the noise.
3. Pull the wheel and check the brake pads
4. If you have aftermarket wheels and the have center caps, remove the center cap and drive to check for the noise.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

Clicking in wheel


Sounds like it might be a CV joint.  Check the CV boot by turning the wheel all the one to the right and see if there are any cuts or rips in the boot.  It is the black accordian looking thing behind the wheel.
