2005 Grand Caravan makes a loud front-left clack intermittently when I shift from P to R
Does'nt do this all the time. Usually on slightly sloped driveway after sitting all night.
Feel it strongly in the left drive shaft not Rt. Noise from midline area to somewhere to the left of that.
A mechanic thought it might be a bad wheel bearing. He could get it to happen on level ground sometimes. Any ideas.
Do you
have the same problem?
