Before I touch my car to fix it...
can someone advise me on what to do about this. I have been driving my celica for over a month with this little noise that would sound like a "cllck" whenever i let of the gas, put in the clutch, or just put it in neutral. Basically when it was moving. I thought it might be something very small, now for the past 3 days it became worse. Today i was driving and i felt the need for speed and hit 110MPH and the "
cllck" was as loud as the past 3 days but louder than the previous 20ish days. Now i was on my break from work so i went back and i parked my car and 3-4 hours later i got out from work. Started up my car, drove and then realized that the "cllck" was more like the sound of a rim not bolted on. I got out. parked it. e-braked, and moved my tires/rims around and it seemed normal. The noise is VERY bad sounding and i dont know what it is, does anyone know? btw the noise is only in the front. Please Please Please help me

Well i would say go through and check and make sure all of your bolts are tightened correctly and all of your studs are in proper working condition. My friends rim after he go new ones, the lug nut wiggled loose and his did the exact same thing. I would say try to tighten all of your lugnuts.

yeah i had teh same noise for awhile..it drives me crazy. The thing is when i tighten my lug nuts really hard, i hear the same noise. Try this and if it makes teh same noise, then we both got the same problem. I want this problem solved so bad because it makes the car sound cheap. thumbsdown
