Front Wheel Issue

While leaving the campground I had the drivers window open & noticed a clicking sound coming from the left front wheel, the sound changed as the speed changed. I stopped & raised the front wheels off the ground with the Jacks. After turning both wheels one at a time to try to reproduce the noise I could not. However when grasping the wheel (left front) by the top & bottom there was a noticeable difference in play between the left & right front wheels. I have had the brake recall so not sure if that is part of the issue or not; I suspect wheel bearing issues. At (60/65) there is a little feel of the begining of a wheel shimy in the steering wheel. Has anyone experienced a similar problem ? any suggestions/Ideas ?
Thanks in advance for any help.

You should not be able to feel any play in the wheel. I would definately look into the bearings soon even if thats not whats causing the click.

A bearing sounds like the culprit, but I would not rule out a lug nut. If you have a hubcap, pull it off and see if there is a loose lug nut floating around. At a certain point in the spin of the wheel the centrifugal force will keep the nut in one spot.

Just a thought.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Hi Wayne M. I was hoping it could be something like that, but I took the wheel cover off & raised the wheel off the ground; everything looks & feels tight except there is at least 1/4" + in movement when grasping the wheel at the top & bottom while trying to move the wheel. Right side is solid no movement. I have scheduled an appointment for late October for repair. Still interested in possible solutions. Thank you for the feedback.

Don’t talk yourself into a big problem that may not exist and could be just a stone between the wheel cover and the wheel. Service personnel at one maintenance shop notice a similar sound when I moved my coach and it ended up to be a non-event low speed piece of gravel falling from one side to the other.
