My 2009 kia Rio makes clunking noise from


Jack it up and try moving the wheel in and out at the top and bottom, and again left to right. If there's movement, you should be able to isolate it to a ball joint, A-arm bushing, or a wheel bearing (though the entire front suspension should have been checked while changing out the rack).

My 2004 kia optima driver side front make a roaring noise while its rolling


Sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end so wheels are off the ground. put your hand on the spring on the strut then turn the wheel with the other hand. If the bearing is bad you will feel the vibration/rough spot in the spring. Noise will get louder or diminish when you peed up or slow down.

Front passenger wheel is in at the top by 1/2 inch rubbing noise started when making left turns. I think wheel hub assembly is bad. Also inboard brake pad completely worn down. Can bad struts cause this?


Sounds like a bad hub/bearing, could also be a front axle issue though.

I have never heard in my almost 15 years as a mechanic of struts causing one pad to wear uneven, this more sounds like an issue of one of two things, bad caliper, or when you had your brakes replaced whoever did the job did not replace that pad.

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

Rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well


Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.
