Has anyone else noticed a popping noise when reversing and turning the steering wheel like when backing out of a parking spot? It’s intermittent but I’ve heard it 3-4 times the past few weeks.
I am getting the same sort of noise and I only have 700 miles on .y new Touring. Similar noise my 02 Explorer with 208 miles makes under the same conditions. Going to try to be sure to be able to replicate then take it in.Took the passport to the dealership and they confirmed the popping noise and said it was the FL strut mount. They replaced the mount and we didn’t hear the noise for a short time but we started hearing the noise again it was just more subtle. Today backing out of a parking spot while turning the steering wheel to the right it made the same loud popping sound again that it was doing prior to the “repair.” Going to have to take it back to the dealership again soon...(sigh)
I still take it no one else is experiencing this popping/clunking noise when turning and backing??
It’s definitely not a normal noise. It doesn’t do it all the time but it does only do it when backing out and turning the steering wheel at the same time. No noise at all then all of a sudden a loud clunk/pop noise. You feel it travel through the body and steering wheel.
