Noise rear wheel tapping

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I get an occasional tapping noise when driving. Maybe from drivers side rear wheel when turning left. Perhaps the weight is bearing down causing this. Only 168k on clock.

Getting wheel rotation today so will ask them to check but I won't hold my breath for an answer. About to cross Nullabor solo so don't want to breakdown.

Thanks for your advice.

The rack ends supposedly have play but then someone else said they don't. The suspension bushes crack when wheel turned to full lock. I believe lots do this.

It is more of a "whoop whoop whoop" at low speed and increases as accelerating. I am now thinking it is rear wheel bearing.

Any suggestions for "backyard mechanic" repair would be appreciated. I know there are lots of home theories.

Thanks for the interest.

Replaced rear wheel bearings and now all fixed. Glad that is done now to the front bearings, I suppose should be done.

When turning full lock, front steering "knocks". Is this a fix or something to live with?

Thanks for reading
