Asked by Nov 11, 2014 at 10:18 PM about the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser DreamCruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 pt cruiser & just recently the
driver's side tire began making a squeeking
sound. From there it just got worst & now it
makes a loud rubbing noise along with the
squeeking. Whenever it makes the rubbing
noise the steering wheel jerks to the side a
little &, at one point, it even jerked to the
side really bad. I Already Took The car to a
mechanic but he hasn't checked it out yet
so I just want to have an idea of what it may
be before he tells me what he thinks it is.

possible wheel bearing.

Mike could be right. It could also be a lower ball joint, tie rod end, strut, axle, or as simple a brake pads grinding into the rotors.
