For the last few weeks my car have been knocking when i drive over pot holes and bumps in the road. I can also hear like squeaking rubbing noises when my wheel is slightly turned to the right when drive around corners or slight bends in the road. Ive taken my car to two different garages. Both have said the wheel is fine and they cant hear any noise. Im feeling un easy about driving my car far, and just worried my wheels gonna fall off. Dont know what it is, or what to do. Any advice be great... thanks

Could be front drop link arms , wheel bearings , driveshaft , c/v joint etc . etc .You are better to get a mechanic to go on a road test with you and demonstrate the noise .

Thanks. Ill ask them to come in the car with me. I just dont understand why they need to hear the noise to fix the problem. Surley they could just look at the wheel and fix the part thats broken

Well ive been for a drive with the mechanic. The only knocking noise he said he heard may have come from the boot. I told him i checked the boot and nothing was loose and that it sounded like the wheel. He tightened the boot anyway just in case.. car still making the same noise. Suggested loads of stuff that it maybe to him. And he said he's checked the car and it all seems fine. I give up trying to figure out whats wrong with my car 😣
