Q: Rattle sounds undercarriage

asked by on

I hear a rattle sound from the left side under the carriage.

There are countless potential causes for your noise. It could be anything from a loose heat shield, to a worn strut mount. I suggest you have a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, listen to your vehicle firsthand to determine the source and cause of the noise.
