Rattlish noise when making turns/bumps

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced similar...as i cannot figure this out at all. I want to suspect it started up..ever sense i slowly backed up over a pile of snow that was JUST high enough to scrape under the car.

 

If im driving around. And take a turn ( commonly right turns is when i can repeat and hear it 100% of the time ) i notice a rattle sound. It doesnt sound like metal on metal though.  Its kinda quiet from inside the car. But when i take the turn.. slowly, not a BUMPY turn..just a nice smooth turn..i hear something rattling.  I have noticed the same sound if im driving on a straight road and hit any sort of bumps.

 

We can conclude something is loose.

 

This has been an on going thing for almost a year now. It hasnt gotten better/worst, so its been shrugged off as whatever...dosnt sound nast..or really bad.  I just figured some plastic is loose.

 

The other day i crawled under my car and taped everything i could guess it was.  Nothing was loose. Not the muffler/exhaust..the plastic gaurds... i cant figure out what the heck is making the sound.  Its odd to me that even turning smoothly, no bumps felt, is able ti do it.

 

I dont know much about cars..enough to say if theres metal steering rods or something that could be loose and bouncing around maybe, and maybe thats why its noted more commonly during turns..

 

Just curious.

Mine i can pinpoint enough to say its front / front left of the car.  External. Hear it easier when the windows are down.  Ill have to really look into it and knock around more when it warms up..maybe under the hood too. Isnt the battery..

 

Thought maybe someone would have experienced similar i noticed the plastic gaurds have push-in plastic rivots.  So maybe one popped loose somewhere when snow hit the bottom..hmm. 15F weather doesnt incline one to climb under the car xD

Try moving the passenger seat belt holder so it is hugging the seat. It sometimes vibrates when the car is driving.

I am fairly certain I have the same issue. There's a quiet rattle on the driver's side front when making right turns. It kinda sounds like dice rattling. I'll update this if I find out what is the issue.
