Noises problem
2004 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 42000 miles

Started hearing a rattle type noise coming from the front end when going over little bumps or closing the drivers door. The sound comes and goes, which makes it hard to find. No front end damage to the car, so I don't know where to start.

Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically, if any movement then possible wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rod, control arm bushing.

Check CV boots for any signs of leakage or cuts/rips in rubber boot.

If no problems are found, then check the exhaust for missing/broken hangers
