your right half shaft needs to be replaced ,it is covered by a rubber bellow that cinnects to your wheel
If a 1992 Acura Legend is making a strange intermittent clicking noise coming from the front left what might be causing this?
I have the same strange clicking noise on my Chevy SS and determined it is coming from the EGR assembly. I found that two of the plastice feeder tubed were broken. !
2001 Chrysler pt cruiser knocking noise in front and rear tires when going over bumps rear tire knocking noise is worse than front changed shocks struts but there was no change what would cause this?
Knocking noise in front and rear . As far as the knocking noise in the front goes, I have the same problem and was told that it is the lower control arm bushings. From what I understand, the OEM bushings wear pretty fast which is not uncommon since most cars have busings that are rubber and don…'t hold up to salt, moisture, etc. \n. \nThe good news is that you can find front control arm bushings pretty easy and they are usally less than $50 for a set. Aftermarket ones should be polyurethane and they'll probably outlast the car and provide a better ride too. Figure 1 1/2 hours on the rack- tops at your local mechanic.\n. \nThe knocking you hear in the rear (yes, I had that problem too) is the Idler arm. The bushings on the Idler arm wear down as well and that noise comes from it banging around when you go over a bump. You have to order the Ider arm, which has the bushings integrated into it already. It's relatively inexpensive - @60 I believe. Figure 45 minutes on the rack at your local mechanic. \n. \nIt also wouldn't hurt to check your spare tire carrier and make sure you have it fully lifted (the tightening nut is inside the liftgate concealed under a plastic cover).

What can cause a squealing noise on a 2003 Pontiac grand am When you make a left turn. The squeal comes from up front left tire.?
Answer . \nStock type whhels or after market? Either way pull the tire and wheel of and look for scratch and drag marks, you will be looking for brake caliper drag and on outter edge where could be hitting steering arm.\n. \nIf no marks while wheel is off check to see what condition the spindl…e bearing is in, may have to put car in neutral to spin the hub/spindle , also try wiggling it to see if excessive play in it.

I hear a clicking noise coming from my jeep when I hit speeds greater then 50 MPH? any ideas on what can cause this
Berretta clunck . You more than likely have a rear strut that needs to be replaced. Be sure to replace both rear struts when doing so.. A strut is the shock absorber system on your fwd Berretta.
Why does my 2000 impala make a noise from left rear tire area when go over any bumps sounds like bad strut new 15000 mls ago no bouning new tires algnmnt 15 mls before noise started everything tight?
impala noise . If you have not already done so, I would return to the shop that performed the wheel alignment and tell them about your "new" noise. Maybe have a look under your impala (if you are able) and see if the strut bolts are tight.Stand back, behind your car and compare the incline of you…r left tire to the right tire. They should look about the same. If you dont feel comfortable driving your car . you should call the place that did the work and tell them about your concerns. (MORE)
1990 toronado is making a noise in the drivers side rear we have changed the bushings and calipers it only makes this noise when you go over a small bump but when you accelerate it goes away?
You may have a bad sway bar link bushing on that side, or the air ride shock may have a bad bushing. Also its possible under the rear cradle that holds the rear suspension and tires may be broken off the mount on that side which will cause a noise on one side of your car. That has happened to me fro…m rot but i had it welded back together. Lastly, check to see if you have a loose caliper which can happen. (MORE)
Is it safe to drive you hit something on the front left side the tire is squealing while driving mostly over bumps and when turning and the steering wheel has to be turned to the right to go straight?
No, it is dangerous to drive your car. Go very slowly. Get it fixed now. . Question? What could be wrong with the car?
What could cause a clicking noise from the front drivers side tire on a 1997 Volvo 850 when driving straight and through turns.?
\nThe clicking sound that the front tire is making when turning is caused by the velocity joint, I suggest that you replace it rightaway because it means that the metal bearings of the velocity joint has already lost one ball and if it breaks apart - the bigger problem is transporting a car with a w…heel that won't roll (MORE)
Why is there an annoying noise coming from your wheel area every time you drive over bumps in the road?
Answer . Please ask this question again describing the noise (clunk/rattle/squeak/rub/rumble/groan/usw.) and type of vehicle (year/make/model/notcolor.)
Could be a bad strut or shock. No I have disconnected both rear shocks and knocking noise is still there whilst driving. Seems to be coming from rear. When stationary I can bounce rear of car up and down and hear noise with handbrake on but not with handbrake off. Any ideas?
Sound is made when air particles vibrate. So when you click your fingers, you're causing the air particles around your finger to vibrate, causing the noise you hear.. The noise you hear is actually a mixture of 2 sounds; the sound of your middle finger sliding off your thumb, and also the sound of …your middle finger hitting your hand. (MORE)
The sway bar end links could be damaged on a vehicle that is makingthat noise. Also, check the dust shields on the front brakeassembly.Ã
The growling noise that you're hearing is most likely your front wheel bearing starting to fail. When you make a right turn the noise gets louder/more noticeable, I assume. This is a pretty inexpensive repair if you're able to do the work yourself. If not, you will probably spend about $350 to have …a technician do the job for you. If you attempt to do this yourself, here are basic instructions to follow. Remove wheel, caliper, and caliper support bracket. On the back side of the rotor, there are 3 bolts holding the wheel bearing to the rotor. Remove these bolts. After this step, then you will need to remove the cotter pin from the bolt holding the steering knuckle to the control arm. Remove the bolt. If you do not have a "pickle fork" to separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, put a pry bar in such a fashion as to put downward force on the control arm and strike the front of the steering knuckle at the bottom until it is dislodged. Be careful not to damage the metal by striking excessively hard. Next, remove the axle shaft nut and place a chisel in the center of the axle and strike with a hammer GENTLY until the axle is dislodged from the rotor/hub. Pull axle out of the way and hub will slide out. Reverse procedures for installation. Make sure if your car has ABS, that you connect the wheel speed sensor. Be careful not to damage the CV boots on the axle. Broken/leaking CV boots need to replaced. (MORE)
Honda CR-V 1999 makes a hammering noise when driving coming from the rear right end Noise enhances when making left turn Note rear differential oil has been changed just recently?
u might want to check your rear cv-axles also rear wheel bearings , sometimes when bearings are worn it may takes a little load to start a rubbing, scrapping ,grinding noises or something similar if the axle may be bad also it may take a little load to start a little poping noise or similar to a lit…tle clicking noise excetera.... note: if is a 2 wheel drive then u wont have rear cv-axles (MORE)
The first thing to check for a wobbly rear end noise is the wheelbearings. If they are ok, check the brake system for worn or brokenparts.
1999 Tacoma 4x4 V6 you are getting this clicking noise from your left front wheel The hubs are new but the noise did not go away The noise comes and goes Help?
One thing to check for is a stone or nail stuck in the treads of the tires. When the tire rotates the rock in the tread taps on the pavement when contact is made.. Possible answer . I am UK based and do not know this vehicle, but being a 4WD I assume it is fitted with CV (constant velocity) join…ts on the front wheels. If the noise is more prominent on full lock, it is a sign of worn CV joints - they tend to be less noisy when in a straight line driving position. (MORE)
Noise coming from your front tire area on the passenger side when I hit a bump or driving on rough surfaces It also does it when you make a left turn but not a right turn?
you need to check shock absorbers and wheel bearings. also check all the front end components such as bushings, one or more is worn out and needs replacing
Some 2001 and 2002 Sonata, XG300 and XG350 vehicles may experience a knocking or squawking noise from the rear suspension while driving the vehicle over rough road surfaces at low speeds. This noise may originate from the rear stabilizer bar and bushing rubbing together. This bulletin provides a pro…cedure to correct this condition.. The problem is the rear stabalizer bushing. The new design part number is 55577-38600. Lift up the vehicle. . Remove the rear stabilizer bracket mounting bolt. . Remove the stabilizer bracket from the stabilizer bushing. . Remove the stabilizer bushing from the stabilizer bar. . Install the new stabilizer bushing after checking the yellow mark. . Align the stabilizer-bushing end with the white mark on the stabilizer bar. . Install the stabilizer bracket on the bushing and tighten the bracket mounting bolt. Tightening torque: 35-45 Nm (350-450 kg.cm, 26-33 lb.ft) . Replace the stabilizer bar bushing on the other side. . Lower the vehicle. . (MORE)
A squeaking noise from the rear left tire when turning is typicallycaused by a worn wheel bearing. The bearing supports the wheels asthey turn. Could also be the brake pad "squealer" letting you know it is timeto have the brakes serviced.
What would cause a squeaking noise coming from the rear end of the car when you go over a bump in the road?
A squeaky noise can come from the back of your car if your shocksare damaged. Sometimes shocks can dry rot.
If its a ka thunk sound even on small bumps,Its most likely your STRUT MOUNTS.
The rear upper strut mounts on this car are made of some kind of foam which breaks down over time you most likely just need them, be sure to get rubber ones from an aftermarket distributor. reach up on top of the strut under the nut/large washer and if you find little peices of foam and the large wa…sher is really close to the strut mount, that will cause a lot of noise.

Why does my Audi make creaking noises when driving over rough terrain sound coming from left forward side?
The suspension is rubbing. There is a pad or bushing that has wornand is allowing metal to metal rub.
Some quick answers : Stone stuck in the treads of the tire, a bad bearing, nail in the tire.
Mine was a busted shock. Look under the car and grab the shock. If you can wiggle it then its bad. If it looks ok I would have it checked by a professional. Good luck
May-be a tire (tread) seperation? Is there any other things going on at the same time? Left front tire jumping at any speed? Pulling one way or the other? Loose handling (front end)?
two things come to mind. the inner tire belts are starting to separate. if so replace tire. loose lug nut. other things that could be is loose, bad caliper. bad bearing. if you are not able to check things out your self, let some one you trust to check it for you. , duboff
I had the same issue with a clicking noise on the passenger side of the car, located somewhere under the dash. I pulled the dash apart and there is a motor located underneath the dash next to the vent that operates the flap on the floor to switch between pulling air from outside and circulating the …air inside the cabin. That motor is stripped out and it's just freely spinning. It will require ALOT of digging in order to get to it, so I just left it. (MORE)
difficult to know what noise you are talking about, but could be a wheel bearing that has run dry and starts to "hum" when it gets hot. could possibly be that the tire is simply under inflated or if it's a retread, the tire could be coming apart which means get it checked right away.
\nThe Highlander's manual gives no instruction on how to remove the spare tire from its storage area. Find the area where the tire tools reside. You should notice a round black cap on the right side of the area where the tire tools are. Remove the black plastic cap. This will reveal a nut t…hat operates the spare tire hoist. Among the spare tire tools is a silver socket with a ring on one side of the socket. Put the socket on the nut and turn the socket. This will lower the spare tire. Thanks Toyota for offering absolutely no instruction on this process. (MORE)
\nThis can be a broken belt in a tire, low tire pressure, or defective wheel bearing. Jack up the rear and rotate the wheels listening for any noise. Inspect the tire for uneven wear or anything out of the ordinary. Look for bulges in the sidewall, I would suspect you have a tire problem.
umm it more than likely is your supsension, shocks or possibly even your tires itself GOODLUCK!
Wow - where to start!!?? So many possibilities. Just describing it as "rattles" is SO non-specific it could be anything. Loose items in the passenger compartment. Poorly stowed jacking equipment or tools. Spare tire isn't cranked up and tightly stowed against the body. Broken or worn out struts… or shock absorbers. Broken engine mounts. Etc. If you EVER have a question about the safety of a vehicle take it to a shop or mechanic and remove all doubt. (MORE)
Clicking noise from front end when turning left or right on my 52 laguna 1.8 could this be outer drive shaft and how do you fix them if it is?
yes they can be fixed, but in this day and time it is easier to take the old one to autozone and exchange it for a rebuilt one.$ about 100.00 to 150.00 depending on vehicle.
What would cause a grinding noise when it's cold and driving over bumps to come from the right front end side of a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it does the same thing. I called the dealer and they said it is most likely the sway bar link/bushings. I'm going to replace today and hope it works since it's an easy fix.
The rear strut bearings are failing causing clunks and creaks (fronts do the same thing). With that many miles, change the bearings and the strut.
Clunking noise coming from the left front end kinda sounds like a flat tire would but the tire isn't flat what causes noises like this?
sounds like a flat spotted tire or a heavily cupped tire. runs hands around tire and check for weird wear on surface of tire. almost need more info as well.
dry bearings. get a LOF and inspection. make sure they lube all the grease fittings
check the rear drag links for wear the ball joints wear out a lot on them
Battery, starter, starter relay solonoid, or a charging problem i.e. alternator or voltage regulator causing battery to discharge. Or bad battery cable connection or dirty or loose battery cable connections can cause this problem. Need to investigate & narrow it down.
First check to see if your brakes are worn. If your brakes are ok see if there's a metal dust cover behind your wheel; they can become deformed and rub against your rotor or small pebbles can get caught in them. If neither of these is the problem, lift the rear of your car ( put the rear up on jack …stands and chalk the front tires so the vehicle doesn't roll ) and put the vehicle in nuetral. Rotate your rear left tire by hand and listen/feel for grinding or resistance to turning that would indicate a bad wheel bearing. (MORE)
If front wheel drive, the rear strut on that side is most likely bad. Rear wheel drive it could be the shock or a broken spring. If it is a spring, the corner should be a lot lower than the other side.
When I drive my car over bumps I hear a loud noise near my back right tire. There is nothing in my trunk. I drive a 2002 Chevy cavalier.?
Crawl under the car and inspect the suspension. You may have a loose or broken shock.
Why does my rear driver-side tire make a rattling noise when going over a bump or rough roads could it be worn out bearings and is that an easy fix?
Assuming something isn't broke it is more likely the strut that is worn out. Bearing would grind all the time. When the strut is worn out and you go over a bump the tire will leave the ground which lets it vibrate and make noise.
It could be a wheel bearing going bad, or it could be a tire condition such as "belt separation" a blister or scalloped, or it could be a foreign object stuck in the tire tread, or it could be the lug nuts are loose,
The clicking sound is coming from the pawls in the one-way clutch that makes up the freewheel mechanism. If it really annoys you, try getting hold of a "silent clutch" Shimano hub. They had their downsides, but they were quiet. Or pull the freewheel apart, and repack it with plenty of grease. It's …a fairly fiddly process, as there's usually very little point in servicing freewheel mechanisms - but it's definitely doable w/o any heroics. Or stop pedalling backwards, there's just not much point in it. If you're doing technically demanding riding, there's sometimes helpful to pedal backwards maybe half a turn, to get the pedals in the preferred position before tackling an obstacle. But you'd have to be fairly picky if a brief burst of clicking in those situations really bothers you. (MORE)
Why does my 2012 Toyota Highlander make a click noise when you take off It sounds like its coming from the passenger side?
The description is too imprecise. If it's a 2012 I suggest you take it to the dealer and have it checked while it is under warranty.
It's loose ! the bearing is loose, the shock is dead, the ball joint is worn.
