Hi, there are four possible cause of the loose tire namely you either have a bent rim, bad bearings, the wheel is loose or the ball joints are bad. You have to inspect it to know the possible cause...........

Sounds like your hub assembly is coming apart. Or check your lugnuts and ALL your front end components. Tie rod ends, upper AND lower ball joints, ETC. Hope this helps, James Booth

Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump


First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

I have a 2001 caravan and I had front brake work done a few months ago- but now its making a knocking noise on the front right side. It sounds like its going to fall off! What could it be?


Check the lug nuts to make sure they are all secured properly . If so then you should properly jack RF tire of ground and check for any loose or worn steering or suspension parts. Let me know what you find

Driver side front tire


Could be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up and shake the tire. Look for a loose front end part.

My 2006 H3 has water leaking into drivers side floor


While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.

Why does my 1998 plymouth breeze sound like my right tire is going to fall off when i turn the wheel to the right? and its only the front drivers side!


You could have a bad wheel bearing/hub assembly, loose tie rod (inner or outer), or a loose ball joint. If you raise the vehicle (with lift or jack), shake the wheel left and right and if it seems to have any loose motion not controlled by the steering wheel, it will be one of those i just listed. Shaking top to bottom is usually an indicator of a bad wheel bearing while side to side will be one of the others.

Change front tire


Hi,

Before you start make sure you have the following:
- jack or any other instrument to lift the car
- tool to open the tire bolts
- spare tire
- if you ar eon the side of the road a warning triangle or any other object to make sure the oncoming traffic can see you.

step 1 - Open the tire bolts, remove all of them but two. The bolts left on the tire should be left quite loose (you should be able to open then with your hands).

step 2 - Position jack underneath car & lift car. VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the jack if proparly positioned & that the car is stable (for a car that has one wheel in the air...), so it won't fall on you. Don't stop lifting once the flat tire is in the air, remmber you have to fit in a new tire. Lift it so the new tire can fit in.

step 3 - Remove the last to bolts with your hands, while loosening secure the tire with one hand so it won't fall on you.

step 4 - Remove flat tire, while doing make sure not to damage the bolt which the tire sits on.

step 5 - Fit new tire in, screw 2 bolts by hand to secure it place.

step 6 - Screw rest of bolt by hand so secure tire in place. Make sure to "push" the tire as firm as possible to the car.

step 7 - Lower car. Do this slowly incase the tire isn't sitting properly.

step 8 - Tighten all the bolts properly, don't over tighten them, cause the next time you have to change the tire, you won't be able to open them.

step 9 - After driving a bit with the car, retighten the bolts, just to make sure nothing is loose.

This only sounds a bit complicated it's much simpler in practice then on paper.
Good luck & congretulations,
Eitan.
