Weird sound when I turn the car to the right

I have a 2012 Kia Forte. I keep hearing this noise coming from the drivers front side. It seems to happen when I turn the car to the right. That seems to be the only time I hear it and it is coming from the front of the car, maybe the dash..in that vicinity.

I found a video on youtube that the person recorded the same sound that I am hearing when you turn the car to the right. Unfortunately the video did not say what the issue was or gave a resolution. Here is the 40 second video clip. It is the same sound I am hearing.

The sound occurs at the 23 second, 30 second and 38 second mark

Many thanks.

So you hear this only when driving or also sitting still?

I only hear when driving and typically when I turn the car to the right.

Then I would suspect bad left wheel bearing.

Re: Weird sound when I turn the car to the right

I cant seem to find anywhere else on the net where a car makes the noise in the video clip I posted. Did you watch the video? Have you ever heard anything similar to that?

That sounds like your a/c compressor cycling.

Im not sure if that is a bad thing or good thing. Would it happen even if the ac wasnt on and if I turned only right.

Don't know about the right turn. Low on Freon is most likely the cause. Or check the wiring to the compressor is it's not rubbing/shorting.

Im not good with those things. I just wanted to make sure the car wasnt going to die on me or something crazy happen before I have an opportunity to get it checked out by someone. I had never heard that sound before.
