    Knocking sound from left frontwheel.

    I hear a knocking sound from my left frontwheel. It just began silently and quickly became good hearable... didn't remember doing anything else then normal driving. It only stops when driving slowly. What could this be?

    Now I know what caused the 2 little stars in my window the other day... Probably a bolt which crashed on it.

    And now my steer vibrates when I drive over 120 km/u. Will such thing cause damage to the cars alignment? (And no, it's not because I still drive around with the wheel 'tightend' with only 1 bolt :P)

    I did this, it's pulled half the thread out the hub, so I'm now looking for a new hub. You might find that the bolts aren't in properly, which is causing it.
