Q: When turning left or right clinking noise in the front.

asked by on

It's hard to describe the noise it makes when turning left or right but it clinks and clicks.

My car has 66000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Lift the hood and have someone turn the wheel back and forth while you feel the top of the strut under the hood and listen and feel for the upper strut bearings making noise. They may need to be replaced.
