Front Wheel Clicking

I just bought an 85 Shadow 500 and the guy just had a new tire put on, the front tire looks off center and the wheel is clicking. It looks like the round "bolt head looking things" on the rotor is rubbing the brake housing.

SOURCE: I JUST HAD THE FRONT

Check to see that your brake rotors are tightly bolted to the rim and also check for a cracked rotor. A crack would be hard to see. If it is when you use the front brake the rotor on the right side would be suspect. If you hear the sound when you use the foot brake the left rotor is the one to check. If you tap the rotor with a wrench and listen to the ring sound of both rotors they should sound about the same a cracked rotor will have a duller sound. Be sure to find the problem before you ride.

04 mountaineer brake light on, grinding and clicking noise front driver wheel


if the clicking noise happens when turning the wheels while driving, the most likely problem is the output axle shaft ( drive axle ) when the boots rips you loose grease and they start to grind and clicking and brake away. ( recommended to bring to an auto repair shop ) roughly price on drive axles are $125 for the part and 1.5 hours labor.

Now, if those noises could be duplicated without driving ( just moving the steering wheel side to side ) it could be a bad ball joint or pitman arm.

I really don't think that the brake light is related. I would go straight to your mechanic and avoid all pot holes and drive slowly.
Good luck.

Front tire clicking noise?


Take the car to a trusted tire store and have them dismount the tire on that wheel to look for an embedded rock or metal piece in the tread area. It may not show itself from the outside due to lack of weight on the area of interest, but an internal inspection may show it up. Try putting the spare wheel on to see if the sound goes away. Hope this helps!

Intermittent clicking from passenger side front wheel at low speeds regardless of tire position


Check these:
1. Check for a rock, screw, nail, etc in the tread of the right front tire.
2. Jack up the right front wheel and manually spin it to listen for the noise.
3. Pull the wheel and check the brake pads
4. If you have aftermarket wheels and the have center caps, remove the center cap and drive to check for the noise.

Clicking noise coming from front driver side wheel/tire as car is in motion. Sounds almost like there is nail/screw stuck in the tire. Upon inspection, i didnt find anything stuck in the tire. What is this...


Wheel bearing is bad and will need to be replaced. This is a somewhat easy job if you are comfortable with mechanics, but you will need to remove a lot of parts to get at the bearing. You can get a new bearing at your local auto parts store. Please rate

I have just bought an 03 Kawasaki 500 ER5 it has a noise from thn


Best would be to examine tht noise, put your bike on the center stand and get an assistant to sit on it so tht the front wheel is thn free to rotate.
Rotate the wheel and try to locate the noise...not bad if you start at the brake pads!
Hope this helps!

How do you remove front wheel bearing


is this front wheel? rear wheel? or 4 wheel drive? if you have front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive you will need to take the tire off and get the center cap off with cotter pin on most vehicles. then put the tire back on without its center cap. then put the vehicle back on the ground. then use required socket with an extention and breaker bar to put through the rim to loosen center hub bolt about a quarter turn. just enough to break it loose. then take the tire back off to finish the job. remove the brake caliper and rotor then center nut on hub bearing. there should be 3 bolts from the inside holding hub bearing on. on rear wheel only you won't need to take the tire off and on.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
