Metal popping noise when turning or hitting bumps

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I got a problem on my 2007 SEL AWD. I was already at my local mechanic a few times and he can't find where it comes from.

 

It sounds like a metal popping noise and only appears once everytime when coming from a left turn to straigt or when I drive a bumpy road.

It sounds for me like its coming from the driver side front wheel area. I also can feel it in the footwell.

It only appears in city driving, not on the Autobahn.

 

Everything seems to be tight. Have checked it a few times.

 

Hope you can help me.

Mileage on your vehicle?  When were struts/strut mounts last replaced?  Ditto for lower control arms and sway bar links.

 

Could be brakes or hubs (circlips) too if more like "plink" sound.

About 160k. Struts/strut mounts nevere replaced. 

Lower control arms were changed about one year ago.

Sway bar links, maybe 2 years ago.

 

 

What do you mean with plink sound, like a higher frequent sound?

 

It sounds for me like, the spring slips off somewhere. But when I jack up the car, the springt doesnt make any noise and everything looks fine. 

 

Should I make a Video of the noise?

Yes please, if you could.  That would be an immense help. 

 

But struts/mounts are WELL overdue.  I would start there first.  Have the wheel bearings been replaced?

 

Could be something else in the suspension/steering has worn down also, at that mileage pretty much every moving part is suspect.

You mean the whole wheel hub bearing or just the bearing to be replaced?

First Video from footwell area. It's sounds complete different on the video, like I hear it in real. 

I handled the car at about 30mph and turned fast left and right.
