I have a similar problem. When the car is warm I start to get noise when on the move and change of possision of the car (tilting). It is a clunk - clunk noise. When cold no noise at all. It's like somthing is lose. I have changed the shock absorbers and all mufflers on exhaust systmem (first thinking it was the exhaust being completely loose. They needed a shift anyhow, though it was not a solution regarding to the nois that anoyes me. I can provoke the noise by reversing (5kmh) and hiting the brake. The noise can also come when changing gear (automatic). The car was 11 years and driven 110 000 km when this noise first appared, now 15 and 150'. I think it has to do with the suspention of the motor it self. The ruber warming up sagging and then opening for this noise. I have had the car at a dealer garage an a lokal F1 mecanic has also checked it out. Both said the car was safe for driving. But could not find the solution. The first could not hear anything, the later said after pointing out the sound it had to be a lot worse before a good identification could be made.

Any suggestion on a solution?

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

Front end noise


A few possibilities with front end noise. Possible worn shock bushings or suspension bushings. As a car accelerates or slows down, the front suspension raises or lowers, thus causing movement of front end components.

sounds like a wheel brg, if the noise lessens when you turn to the left while driving more than likely it is coming from the right side, but a brg makes more of a roaring noise.

I replaced hub on front axel but the noise is


It sounds like it is a front end suspension problem. The following should be checked: upper and lower ball joints, the sway bars links, and even the shocks. Replace what is problematic, and your front-end noise should disappear, if it is a front suspension problem. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!
