Noise from front of car

Asked by Jul 04, 2017 at 10:43 AM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I have a noise coming from the front of my c180
2005 Mercedes.  When you are driving straight it is
like a clicking noise also when you turn right it gets
louder but when you turn left it goes away. I have
put it into a garage and he replaced the wheel
bearings and breaks and tyres have been replaced
recently also. Can anyone help as this is now
driving me mad.

Are there over sized tires on the car? Might have loose wheel well covering rubbing in the offending area. Other ideas are brake pads may not be seating correctly in caliper and lug nuts not torqued to spec. Warped or distorted brake rotors can have issues as well. They need to be inspected/replaced depending on run out. My first thoughts were CV joint but it looks like Benz did a rear wheel design on this car. So if that is true the last idea would be a bent spindle (hopefully not) or improper pre-load and load spec to bearing (s). Only other thoughts are that for have previously owning a benz that they are hard on the front end components especially the lower ball joints. Just trying to cover all the possible things here. Hope your shop and car treat you well. Good Luck!
