Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Knocking sound from front left wheel.

Thanks for your reply Shanat. Not much more I can tell you about the problem really. When driving normally it is fine and then as soon as I hit a bump in the road even a small one there is a clunk from the left wheel area and that side of the vehicle seems to jolt a bit. The ride seems not quite so smooth from that area of the car over any bump.
Cheers
Andy

It could be a balljoint on the left side i cannot be a hundred percent sure without seeing the car but any tyre or suspension place should be able to tell you for free before any work is committed. then if your able fix it yourself. if not get them to or i can try to talk you through what to do

Ing sound coming from left handside of xsaara picasso


If the knocking sounds like thudding or something dull is knocking on the car, remove the left front wheel and check the drive shaft boot. It could have been torn and parts of it is hitting the lower arm. If it comes from the engine, check the engine mounts, all 3 of them.

There is a knocking sound from engine(left side) when driving. It starts when you make a sharp turn.


If you have a front wheel or all wheel drive vehicle I would guess it's a CV joint (front axle), not the engine.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

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.
