I have a 1997 Camry that had been in an accident and gone off the road on the passenger side. It makes a loud clunk noise on the front passenger side, sounding like a strut. I do not think it is a strut. But the bracket under the hood is twisted from the accident. Where is this sound coming from?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Julie, Loud clunk & twisted bracket does not sound good. There could be multiple things wrong with your car. I recommend you don't drive it, but have it towed to a shop for an inspection of the damage. I also hope you have called your insurance company to make a claim. This will speed up the process as the shop will not be able to make any repairs until the insurance adjuster checks out the damage.
