Q: Loose rattling noise from passenger front wheel?

asked by on August 07, 2017

Hello I've recently changed both sets of sway bar bushings and all 4 end links for both sway bars along with both rear struts, after all this my suspension noise is significantly better but now I can hear a sound that I suspect has been there all along but now I can hear it above everything else, it's a random loose rattle sound only when going over bumps from the front passenger wheel it sounds like the wheel is going to fall off almost, the cv axles are new driver is 1 yr passenger is 2 yr and boots are in perfect shape doesn't make sound when turned lock to lock and driven in circle, I do have a slightly loose tie rod end on that side here's a video to It https://youtu.be/LlTZsQYK8aw Could that be the issue? Everything is torqued correctly and nothing else is loose! Thanks.

My car has 164000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The tie rod is supposed to move like that. If you only get noise on bumps then it is most likely cause by the struts and top strut mounts are loose and worn out.

My brake lights quit working and I can't find the fuse for them. It's NOT in the under the hood fusebox.

The stop lamp fuse is in the left kick panel inside the vehicle. It is a 15amp fuse that powers the stop light switch on the brake pedal. The brake light switch sends power to rear brake lights.

What is that black thing in front of my car that's hanging?

Hi There, A number of things are black in color and may drag from the front of the vehicle if they happen to be loose or broken. There are many different under carriage guards that help to protect various engine...
