Link (s) at front is soft spot, especially if hit a lot of bumps... the small ball/socket on the link gets loose and you get a clunk sound over bumps... drive carefully down the road, and rock the steering wheel left/right and make the body rock real hard, see if noisey..

<--- please fill in the 'location' and 'what you drive' boxes on your personal profile page.

Hi,well i got that problem before,and the dealership diagnosed and replaced the front end links in both sides under warranty(45 mins job),you can hear that noise over bumps ,potholes or irregular roads,pretty annoying,also you will feel a slight free play in your steering wheel and sound in your suspension (the link that is failing)when you are not in motion and you try to move it one side to the other,then the noise progress over time in one side ,then the other and in my case it was very loud.(My personal experience,that could be different in other circunstances).

Cheers

Phil.

Mel,do you have the noise when you put the car or i should say when you select
''Drive'' or "reverse"?,then that might be something different,please keep us updated.

Sounds like the Santa Fe 2G forum here.

My 2008 SF had a front-end clunking over bumps (bad stabilizer link) and a click/clunk when shifting gears (plastic washer on axle). Both fixed promptly under warranty. See your dealer.

I have been having issues with my 2007 elantra also with these funny noises. I have now had both left and right sway bar link's replaced and also all 4 strut mount dust covers sprayed with urethane because they were lose. This has still not fixed the problem. I get this loud clunking when turning corners and the dealer has yet to figure out what the problem is.

It helps in all cases to not only tell the forum the year of your vehicle but also the amount of miles/km and if the vehicle is driven mainly in the city, highway, or a combination of both. With enough mileage this could be most any front end part...struts, bushings, just about anything.

Any competent dealer that hears a front end noise should be able to find it...just a case of looking for the part with excess play.

If you have a 2009 you might be covered under the attached service bulletin - Front Strut noise.

Requires replacement with a new bumper stopper and is covered under warranty.
