Do you know mazda 6s?
Mazda 6 2004 right front wheel clatter on breaking
On braking there is a bad sounding clattering, the brakes seem to be
An axle problem?
Something in the steering? I leaned my head out the right side
and identified the right fron area as the source of the noise.
A clattering cyclical grind noise. Not a good sound.
Car has 150,000 miles.
"Checked out" can mean many things, especially when said by someone
who doesn't even know if he has a sway bar. No offense intended. :)
Which of these is more accurate?
1 - The car was lifted off the ground (preferably on a hoist), the wheel was
removed, and all the suspension and brake parts were thoroughly inspected
by someone who knows what to look for.
2 - You stepped on the brake pedal and the car stopped before it hit the tree.
It got new tires all the way around, the tire installer checked
the brakes. It was aligned at another shop and they checked out
the front-end. The noise existed before any of this work.
That's why I'm asking here.
One or the other or both
Cost of repairs could be $400
Cost of repairs could be $800
Cost of repairs could be $1200
Mechanic is uncertain what the cause is so I'm going to keep
researching this. If you know mazda 6s and especially the front-end
throw me some ideas.
