Q: Steering wheel makes noise in a 2004 Hyundai Elantra

There are many possible reasons that the steering wheel may be making this sound. I suspect an issue with play in a joint of some kind. Your vehicle has an intermediate shaft that goes from the steering wheel to the rack and pinion assembly. This shaft has a u-joint on it that, if bad, can cause a clunking sound when turning the wheel. It is also possible that the tie rods, ball joints, or wheel bearing in the front end of your vehicle have play. If they do, have them replaced as soon as possible by a certified technician as this is a major safety concern. Have a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle's steering wheel noise in order to make a proper diagnosis.
