Has anyone experienced a ticking/clicking sound when turning at slower speeds?

Thought it was a rock or nail in tire, but I have checked all tires. The clicking/ticking sound goes away at higher speeds (exhaust drowns out) or when driving straight.

I've also checked the ebrake, it's not dragging.

Thought it might be a bad bearing.

Dealer says they can't duplicate it (bs).

Any guidance or similar experiences would be helpful.

Cheers

Not having any experience like you describe. Wanted to share a story. Had a similar problem with another vehicle. Service mgr. heard it but the mechanic couldn't find it. Even when I pointed it our to him. I identified the problem for him--he was nearly deaf. Bitched to the dealership that for his safety he needed hearing aids. Hopefully the mechanic that checked your car wasn't deaf as well.

Thanks. I actually went back to dealership and have serv manager drive around parking lot. He confirmed that he heard it and submitted a new ticket. Apologized and said tech probably had "windows" up when testing (ugh).

Any word on the clicking noise I have a loud ticking noise from the rear. It gets very audible with hard steers left and right. Definitely from the rear.

Is the sound really noticeable? Our cars have rotors that float on stainless steel pins cast into the hubs. The rotors make weird ticking noises when they cool after using them hard. I wonder if this is what you are hearing?

I just noticed the same noise last week when driving through my neighborhood with the windows down. Goes away when the wheels are going straight ahead. Gets louder (tick, tick, tick) when you turn the wheel in either direction. The harder the wheel is turned, the louder the sound. Would love to hear what the dealership found.

It is very noticeable when turning hard. A road near me has some heavy switchbacks when turning hard left with window down it clicks loud and couninious in the corner and quits when you straighten out. Sounds just like a nail or rock in the tire, it's a noticeable metallic click. Here is nothing in my tires I've checked them. After a drive while the breaks are cooling there is a pinging that's not the same noise. Not sure if the passsanger side does the same.

None. I jacked it up spun the wheels pulled and pushed on them... nothing, they spin freely and smooth. It really seems to be coming from the rear. I'm 90% on that.

Had mine in the shop last week. Service tech couldn't hear any noises. I can in drove him around and he finally heard it. Also it developed a click while at a stop turning the wheel all the way to the left then back right. Clicking both ways. They are replacing the rack and pinion...... I'll find out the verdict tomorrow.

Dealer replaced both rear rotors problem solved. It was the pins in the rotors that were loose causing a tick with lateral pressure.

Hi guys

I have exactly the same problem.
You can only hear it with open window!
But, I only hear it if I steer a bit to the left.
When I turn right I hear no noises.

It is a metallic "tick, tick"tick.
It comes from the backside. And the noise gets faster the faster you drive.

Could you solve the problem?
What exactly was defective?


PS: Sorry for my bad english, i am from switzerland :rolleyes:

Yep same thing here. I've had it for a couple months now. I have taken it to the dealership twice to look at it once they could not duplicate it and the second time I took the tech out. He heard it and did an inspection and contacted ford engineering department which came back with nothing wrong. I don't know how the sound could be normal.......
