    My 2002 Honda civic makes a clunking noise while driving when I turn the steering wheel from left to right. I also can feel a vibration through the gas pedal when the clunking occurs.

I Found out what the problem was... whoever owned the car before me drove it so hard that they tore the bearings out of the lower left control arm. when i went to get a quote they told me that they had seen this before many times because the bushings were never built to be very tough. have to replace entire control arm can't just replace bushings $282 with labor.

Front left wheel is making a 'grinding' noise. seems to get louder when applying brakes! what could this be?


If front wheel drive, sounds like classic symptom of wheel bearing failure and or cv joint failure.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

Hi, if this noise changes when turning left or right, (gets louder or quieter), there is a good chance a front hub is bad. For instance, if you turn right, and the noise gets louder,the left hub is bad, and vice versa for the other side. You can normally jack it up, spin the wheel and hear the noise, or wiggle the wheel, and see if it has play. Good luck...

I'm having the same exact problem as cpurdey with my 2004 Mazda MPV. My mechanic is quite certain it is not the wheel bearing or hub but seems to think it's a bearing in the transmission. Is...


If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Front wheel bearings bad


if it gets louder when you turn left then the right front wheel bearing is bad and vice versa it gets louder when the weight shifts to that wheel

My car makes a bad growling noise. Everyone said that it was a front wheel bearing because that tire was worn down really bad on the outside. I replaced the passenger front wheel bearing, and it is still...


WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

Noisy sound coming from the wheel while driving . . .


If it's wheel bearings, they should get louder the faster you go. Also, if you have one going out, loading up the suspension on that side will make it louder. For instance, if you have a bad front left bearing, and you take a right-hand turn at speed on the highway, that will load the left side suspension since the car will roll to the left. The noise would get louder. Similarly, if you took a left turn, and the weight shifted off of the left side, the noise would go away.

Try jacking up the car and grabbing the wheel at the top and bottom and shaking it hard. If you get any play or looseness in the wheel, chances are the bearing is bad.
