Noise when turing?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help, I get a wierd gringing sound on a 02 996 when turning left or right while giving it throttle. This grinding sound even somtimes occurs at speeds of 65mph while going in a straight line. I have checked everything up front and it seems to find. I just need some help on what tests or how I can check if it is the wheel bearings are not. Any DIY post, if so was not able to find them. Thanks Board members

Is the noise from the front of the vehicle? Can you feel anything through the steering wheel? Start with the basic stuff like checking the P/S fluid level and tire pressure.

Wheel brngs can be hard to diagnose, well traveling at speed turn the wheel to load each wheel-does the noise increase/decrease? You can also take the weight off each wheel, grab the tire at the 12 and 6 o'clock position and then the 9 and 3 and wiggle it to see if there is any play in components. Another trick while it's jacked up is to grad ahold of the strut spring while spinning the wheel and feel for any roughness/noise transmitted through the spring.

Hello there! I just jacked the car up front on both left and right sides. I was able to move both front wheels easily from left to right, but not from 12 to 6 positions. While doing this it did make a slight metal sound and the steering wheel shifted a good amount. So my question now is that since both front wheels moved from left to right and did make some noise, does this pretty much indicate that I need new wheel bearings? Also if the wheel bearings were good would is still be able to move the wheels from left to right while the car is jacked up on one side? Thanks
