It is the CV joint within the axle. I would replace it with the entire axle assembly.To save money I would buy a good used axle then bring it to a local garage.

If clicking while trying to start then might be a bad starter. If clicking while running, then might be valve/lifter noise.

Does the engine turn over and then make the clicking noise while trying to start, or does it not do anything but make the clicking noise when you turn the key. If its not turning over at all then it might be a battery problem, Try cleaning the battery terminals, and/or charge the battery, Could also be the starter solenoid, but start with the battery first.

If just clicking and not starting, most likely a dead battery.

Its usually a U joint. Click under acceleration . While turning,a CV joint. Grinding or moaning is usually a bearing.

The first thing you usually notice is a clicking while turning. After a while, you will hear it all the time and louder when turning.

most likely bad cv joints or wheel bearings. If the bearing is bad it will produce a loud whining noise the faster you go and if it is a cv joint it will make a clicking sound turning corners or when backing up with the wheels turned.

You did not describe the noise so here are a couple of thoughts: The front struts will sometimes make a thumping noise going thru turn if they are worn out. CV joints will often make a clicking noise going thru turns when they are failing. When the CV joint fails completely it will often lock up and you won't be able to steer the car.

Who diagnoised this as a c/v joint noise? Roaring is wheel beaarings. Clicking while turning is c/v joints. The bearings aren't easy to change.

I'd try changing tires, worked for me.

If the noise is a clunking or clicking type noise, it's probably your CV boots. Costs 300 or so to replace for each side. These begin to make noises when turning when they are going bad, it's best to replace soon after the noise starts because they can be a huge problem if they break while you're driving.

If there is a clicking noise get it to a mechanic you engine is blown and may be saved. Most likely you'll need a new one because a lifter is broken and it would be cheaper.

You have to put your feet on the pedals... then push down to roll forward and move your feet in a circular pattern while steering with the handlebars. The clicking may be your chain rubbing on the derailer

It could be low fluid in the power steering pump.

The Most Common Problem When You Hear A Noise While Turning Is The CV Boot. Rubber Boot Will Tear And you Hear It On Every Turn.

Change the blower fan speeds to see if the noise changes. It is possible that the fan is still running while the heat is off, and the fan is rubbing.

It sounds goofy, but baby oil, a tiny drop of it is the only way I've found to stop the clicking noise. Where do you put the baby oil?

User Avatar

It sounds like you have a bad CV joint. Often times the rubber boot covering the joint will go bad after a while and allow dirt and moisture in the joint, causing noise, most noticeable on turning.
