Customer Question
My 2012 santa fe...

My 2012 santa fe is making a banging noise usually when I make a turn. sounds like its coming from the rear end. any clues? awd

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

The noise is coming from the rear end! seems mostly when you make a right turn! its been happening off and on for about a month

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Santa Fe yourself? What have you tried so far?

No! nothing so far

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Some one said possibly needs the differential oil changed?

Does it happen only when it's a tight turn? Like into a parking spot or driveway?

Sorry for the delay in my answer, I don't work on Sundays.

If you do hear this while going straight, then I would suspect the differential has an issue. I would look for any oil leaking out of the front of it to indicate a problem with one of the bearings.

If you hear this mostly on tight turns, that indicates a possible problem with the transfer case. If it's binding it will make some banging and clunking when you make the tight turns that will sound like it's coming from the back of the car. This is because all 4 wheels are trying to turn at the same speed as you make the corner.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
