Q: There is a loud clunking from front wheel.

asked by on February 06, 2018

Four days ago a clunking started from my wheel in the front. I have recently replaced just about everything in that area so I do not know what is causing it.

My car has 76000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Noise from the wheel may be a wheel bearing or brake issue and would need to be heard to isolate the problem for you. I would recommend getting a mechanic like one from YourMechanic to diagnose the noise to see if it is a drivetrain or brake issue.
