Default Ticking noise

Hi how is everyone. I have a noise front left like a ticking sound. It only occurs when turning left off the power. I cant hear it when under power. I have checked wheel bearings and have no play at all. I have looked for play in suspension but haven't noticed any. Can anyone give me any idea where to look. Car is a 2006 xt forester also has new front drive shafts but was doing it before installing.

you can't use the wobble test for a wheel bearing in an AWD.
the driveshaft going through the hub holds it tight.

Does the ticking frequency change with speed?

If you coast through a left hand corner in neutral gear does it sound the same?

You can, Rob.

I've done it on a rear wheel bearing on a 199x OB/Liberty wagon.

Thanks everyone its weird it might be a bit quicker with speed but coasting with foot on clutch turning left it does it the worst or in gear coasting down hill slight left. its weird comes and goes a little. I also would of thought if it was a wheel bearing it would be all the timeturning eather way

Gidday C79

In my friends' Subie with the dead rear wheel bearing (p/s rear), it would clunk when throwing into a series of sharpish r/h corners. No noise when going straight or on the same sort of l/h corners (going up Marble Hill road in the Adelaide Hills).

Vigorously rocking the car from side to side using the top of the rear p/s wheel showed both looseness and made the same kind of knocking noise (different from what I could hear inside the car, of course).

Informed our friends to have it replaced ASAP!

Thanks well I tried rocking side to side vigorously and no noise. So tried bouncing the front corner and got a clunk that isn't in any other corner. Sounds like it was coming from suspension. Has anyone ever had a top hat become buggerd.

Yep! The bearings can fail.

Had the top-hat centre nut come loose and rattle
otherwise look at LCA bushes, they always fail and Swaybar end-links

Always though the diagnostic for sick CV joints was ticking when turning a corner.
