Toyota Corolla Repair Question
Hammeringn noise at the front left side
When you hear this noise-do you hear it going straight or while making L/turns only.
thanks razmataz for the quick, i hear the hammering noise even it is on a striaght path specially approaching to stop, hoping for your quick response again. thanks again
My guess its coming from the CV joint-try grabbing the half shaft push it in and out from the transmssion and check for excessive play. sometimes the boot will be okay but not the joint.
thanks again rasmataz for your quick reply, base on what you say, i've try it before and it has a play when pushing in and out from the transmission, is that abnormal? is the normal setting is no play or clearance? if so, my next repair would be the relacement of cv joint, please enlighten me on this. thanks. lito
Get a L/Half Shaft-make sure tighten the spindle nut to spec. Double check before replacement-by jacking it up and run it in gear and listen very carefully. Safety First-
thanks again, i'll give you feedback after ive try your suggestion, in case there is no hammering sound after i jack it and run on gear only, what might be the problem, shock absorber and spring were replace last june 2006, suspension, booshing ok, ball joint check ok, hoping again for your reply. thanks
