Hi,

I have Camry 2004. occasionally I hear a clunking sound when turning. It sounds like I am dragging a metal pipe on the road but no pipe came off. I can't really pin point where the sound originates. I took the car to the dealer when I had the warranty. He test drove the car, jacked it up and checked the wheels. Because this sound only comes on occasionally, the mechanic couldn't hear it and told me to ignore it.

Now that I am out of warranty, I am still hearing the sound once in a while particularly when the weather gets better. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.:confused:

time for a new cv joint. what you're describing is common on front wheel drive cars. I'd find a new mechanic to work on that car, your dealership doesn't sound capable of diagnosing common problems.

Not being able to diagnose the problem is bad enough, but asking you to ignore a sound/noise that come intermittently is just outrages. He should be fired.

Nope I do too. I just didn't post because he says his is occasionally. My gen5 does it all the time... maybe its just more effed up than his is ...
Yea, my grandfathers old gen 5.5 did that. You could feel and hear the clunk when you turned the wheel.
