      You have a bad ball joint on the driver side most likely. You mentioned tie rods and motor mounts, no mention of ball joints. if the creaking happens while turning the steer wheel with the car not moving, that would especially confirm the ball joint. Bad wheel bearings tend to make a humming noise when they are bad, ball joints creak like a rusty door hinge, Bushings in control arms can creak also but usually only when hitting bumps. ball joints creak when hitting dips in the road where the suspension has the most travel and when you make any kind of turn. My gut feeling says ball joint.

      Most likely cause is a bad lock cylinder. If the key will not turn even just once more, that will also require the lock cylinder housing to be replaced as well since by design, the lock cylinder can only be removed when the key is placed in the "run" position.

    When I make sharp turns I hear a loud screeching noise. What could be causing that?
    It typicially happens while in the parking garage at my job. I park on one of the higher floors and with each turn as I go down each level, I hear this load screeching noise, but only turning turns. It sounds like it is coming from the front part of the car.

      Hi There
      Sounds like you might have a wear indicator on your brake pads contacting the rotor. i suggest you get your brakes inspected to start with. Hope this helps.

      Hello
      Your recommended tire size should be on a sticker located on the "B" Pillar.

      If moving the tires front to back has no change on the pull to the right (confirm) then i suspect that either you have an alignment angle that is off (specifically caster) which is not adjustable on Accord or there is a power steering issue. Try driving the car (be careful with this) and while the car is pulling, turn the engine off but just turn the key one click back carefully as you do not want the steering wheel to become locked as it does when you park the car and take the key out. if the ppull goes away then the rack and pinion is the cause. Just another thing to rule out. the person that does the alignment must be told ahead of time about the car pulling so that he pays close attention to whether caster is out of specs or not. there can be other causes of a pull but I just want to go a step at a time. I am also assuming that the car pulls without your foot on the brake pedal.

      check your tire pressure and have your wheel alignment checked and your suspension checked and tire size checked.

      Unbalanced tires will cause this vibration at a certain speeds. Rotate the tires and see if that helps.
