Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

the best way is to replicate it by putting the car up on jack stands and put the vehicle in drive while turning while someone inspects underneath with a stethoscope to pinpoint the noise

Did that. Mechanic can't find it. He doesn't know where the sound is coming from.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It's gotten progressively worse last 4-5 weeks and idk what to do next. It is worse in the morning when I'm backing out and turn the steering wheel to the right.
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

is it only in the morning? and then it goes away ?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It use to be only in the morning and occasionally when turning right. Now it is all day with all turns
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago
