Clunking from rear left brake wheel


If the issue is persistent while driving on smooth road, your issue may be related to a bad wheel bearing. If the issue is only persistent while hitting light bumps its probably more related to a bad suspension bushing or component like a ball joint.

I'd inspect both sides and try to detrmine if you see any differences in the sides. If a boot or something along those lines are torn that could be the culprit.

I'd also suggest raising the rear of the vehicle and attempting to move the rear wheels up and down or back and forth (please use jack stands and have someone with you while doing so) to see if the wheels move. That may allow for some clunk that you can maybe see/hear.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

I have a 2000 vw beetle and I have two problems with it. The first is the abs light and traction light are on and sometimes they will go out but once you hit the brake pedal they will come back on. VW...


The wheel sensors might have debris. But to answer, I recommend hooking a scanner and find out if there are DTC's stored relating to those areas.

How do i know when calipers need replacing


the clunk over bumps is either strut mounts or stabilizer end links. calipers are bad when you feel a pull when braking, or u notice excessive heat coming from your wheel

Dash noise from VW Beetle


Must be a bad front wheel bearing. Does the pitch change as you speed up and slow down?
