    1995 toyota corrola ,steering makes noise when turn, how i fix it

  • markspoon May 06, 2009

    I have the same car and the same noise, only happens under accelleration (ie. no noise when coasting/rolling).

    It's not the knocking sound like CV joints.

    (note: the car is AWD and has airbag adjustable suspension too)

It's a good chance that it's either wheel bearings or the CV joints.

Front end noise

Assuming that you have already ruled out the brakes, severely worn engine mounts can transmit vibration and noises from the engine which are not normally heard. You don't say in what I see but is the vehicle two or four wheel drive. Since you mention CV half shafts I have to assume it is at least front wheel drive. If the vehicle is four wheel drive then there is a front differential with bearings in it that may be at fault. Have you done both sides when you say "hub assembly". Defective hub bearings will make grinding noises which will change tone or intensity when turning, accelerating or braking however the noise is usually fairly constant unless they are only just starting to fail. CV joints don't normally "grind" unless they are really bad. They usually make progressively worse "clicking" sounds or "clunking" sounds especially when turning hard, changing gears or direction of travel (forward to reverse and back again). Do you have non-stock tires/wheels? Larger/wider than factory spec tire sizes can rub the fender wells when the car is moving or turning. Another thing it could possibly be is the air dam below the front bumper. If it is loose it will push down in the airstream while the car is moving and rub on the ground.

Wheel bearing maybe, if you just did your brakes, the heat sheild behind the rotor is probably rubbing, take the wheels off and spin the wheel and then look behind it, should be easy to find. I assume you did it the right way with pads and new rotors :).

Could be low on oil, trans doesnt have fluid, wheel bearings are gone, or could be something stuck under the vehicle and either the tires or the drive axle is rubbing against it.

Rubbing/grinding noise

Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly
