knocking sound

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by butch33 via, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. 99 civic SE --have owned it since 99 Zero problems --only 89,000 km's

    noticing a slight shaking of steering wheel at certain speeds only
    intermittent past few weeks -checked tire pressure and its fine -lugs are all
    tight etc..

    this morning , I hear a knocking sound coming from passenger side front wheel
    --eventually goes away after some stop and start driving and then begins to
    only happen when braking

    I'm due for an oil change so I'll be bringing it in to the dealer sometimes
    this week

    just thought I'd pick your brains on some ideas it may be -I suspect I need
    new brake pads because they havent been changed during the cars 10 year life

    whatever it is, it sounds potentially very dangerous. do not drive
    until exact cause is determined.
