Q: Damage to car after hitting curb.

asked by on

I ran over the curb and now, when I turn my wheel to the left, there is a scratching sound. Not sure if I need my alignment adjusted or if I damaged something.

Its likely that something is bent and should be checked on an alignment rack by a certified mechanic. Another likely possibility would be a plastic splash guard that came loose in the incident. Have this problem inspected and diagnosed for you.
