I have a clicking or slight knocking noise from front driver's side wheel area. I mentioned this to my mechanic (Arnold Clark, Aberdeen, Scotland) during service and MOT, but they could not find anything. The sound is mainly when I am turning into a bumpy road. You can feel that the tire is knocking in a 'sine wave' fashion when turning.
I have read through a lot of literature and found two plausible reasons for this namely:
1 - The suspension strut top mount bearing being knackered.
2 - The nylon drive washers located on the drive shafts are bad. Folks said these were being replaced by Hyundai dealers with a steel Teflon coated ones.
I am not highly technical so do not have a clue if these are the key things to look out for should I maybe to try another mechanic.
Any comments or suggestions are highly welcomed.
have the same problem?
