I took a short video and uploaded it to YouTube to show you what I'm talking about only to realize I'm not allowed to post links yet because my post count isn't high enough. *face palm* If you feel so inclined to help me out you can search "2006 Mazda 3 Passenger Wheel Clunking Noise" on Youtube and it's the 4th video from the top that's 10 seconds long. Thanks in advance for any help you may have as to what's causing it!
Saw the video. Try jacking that wheel off the ground and gabbing it at the top and bottom and push in and out and check for play. Also do it side to side. As loud as it is it seems like you would feel movement checking it like that and looking and seeing the loose part.
