Question about Mazda MAZDA6

My Mazda6 has a clunking feeling in the front end when I turn the wheel at slow speeds. Also the feeling is in the sterring wheel. The car is a 2006 with 36000 miles. Need some help on this issue.

    I have the same problem. The clunk sound will occur when turning the wheel more towards the right then the left side at slow speeds. Orange Mazda in Albany, NY stated they could feel and hear the problem, but could not find anything wrong with the car. I wonder if they would find the problem when the car goes out of warrenty.

    Hi and Thanks to beefytheman4 for solving the problem of getting rid of the clunking feel/noise in the steering of Mazda 6.  After trying the solution: checking the telescopic steering - a little movement to grease it up he said and making sure it is locked down tight, I was surprised by the instant loss of noise when driven.  There is a need to link his solution to all the other sites which are recommending replacement of engine mounts, control arms, ball joints,etc... .
    What a savings!

Hi For all those who have the same problem if you have a telecopic steering adjustment then that's the problem. If you dont adjust the lever under the steering wheel much then the problem can be solved by releasing the lever under the steering and pulling the steering towards you then aware from you a couple of times then move the steering up and down. This will loosen up a bit of grease in the steering rack. If this works it will only resolve the problem for a short while and you will need to add grease down on the rack.

Clunking noise when turning steering wheel going slow around corner


A lot of these Chrysler Town and Country vans had issues with the front stabilizer bar end links, usually you wont feel them move if you try to move them by hand, but they will make an awful noise clunk noise when turning or going over bumps slowly, i would suggest replacing the end links and that should take car of your clunking issue. Also the front lower control arm bushings separate as well and can cause this noise as well.... but i would replace the end links as a first step and go from there.... Hope this helps..

Clunking noise near power rack when turning wheel back and forth


Inspect inner and Outter tie rod ends. This may be done with the wheels on or off. Have another person **** the sterring wheel L/R while nother person holds on to the rod ends. Feel for excess play or try shaking the steering rod, if its loose replace inner and outter rod ends.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion, and have a clunking noise in my front end. It only occurs when I apply the breaks at a slow speed, usually when turning around in a driveway or parkinglot. I dont hear the noise...


I have a 2006 Mazda 6 wagon - same car under the skin as your fusion. If you have a telescoping steering wheel, it might be that the grease they used for the steering column is substandard. I just fixed my clunky steering by releasing the telescoping/tilt lever and pushing the steering wheel in and out a few times (i repeated twice after 2 short test drives with the problem improving each time); this eliminated the noise. Blogs for the Mazda 6 indicated this. Give it a try as it's a free fix. If the problem comes back, and some indicate it will, the dealer may need to relubricate the steering column with a better grease. This is the fix for the Mazda6.

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

Suspension?


have a shop look at the front end... there are bushing on the front of your car and if they are bad it will clunk when you turn.....
on rear wheel vehicles they are called a-arm bushings but, i do not know what they are called on your vehicle.
