Q: Why does my Rolls Royce Ghost make a knocking noise when turning

asked by on

i have a rools royce ghost which when warmed up makes a knocking sound on full lock

My car has 9000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Typically this noise will occur on full turn when you have the wrong size wheels on it or if it has a worn out ball joint. Most of the time this is caused by a ball joint. The vehicle needs to be put in the air so that the suspension can be checked for any loose parts.
