drive train Sign In

I got in my car and was driving down the road and drivers side front had a good wobble to it. Took car back home jacked it up, I could move the wheel side to side a little so I took tire off but couldn't see anything out of the ordinary going on other than the rotor plate being loose but it tightened up when I put tire back on. car is 2006 Chrysler Seabring with front wheel drive. any thoughts on what problem could be?

The rotor is going to be loose on that one when the wheel isn't installed. The rotor isn't pressed onto the hub on that design.

Your going to need someone to move the wheel side to side while you watch to see what is loose. You could have a ball joint, wheel bearing, tie rod(s), and/or lower A arm with too much play.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

I would spin the tires when in the air and look for one with a deformation that doesn't turn straight. Yo may have a tire with a broken steel belt.
