"clicking" when taking turns -- indicates CV joint is going bad
On Front Wheel Drives, when the CV Joint is going bad it will do this because the joint is not wearing out and when turned you get a clacking sound. I believe it is the CV joint opposite of the way you turn that is bad.
It COULD be a constant velocity joint (CV joint) going bad.
Yes it does if the car is moving. Because the CV joint is part of the axil if the car is moving the bad CV joint will be moving too. or No it will not make noise if the car is in neutral and the car is not moving.
It sounds like a CV joint is going bad. Check under the front of the vehicle for a torn CV joint boot. Often times these tear and allow dirt into the joint making them go bad.
Could be, Air in the PS system, Loose/worn PS belt, PS pump going bad, CV axle joint going bad, Wheel bearing going bad,
Bad CV joint.
Sounds like a bad CV joint. On most cars, it is often more economical to replace the complete axle shaft on that side that has a bad cv joint. Hope this helps. Good-luck!
Assuming this is a front wheel drive vehicle, a CV joint in one of the halfshafts is going bad.
A Clicking or grinding noise coming from the front end. The best way to test your CV joints is to drive backwards in a tight circle (wheel completely cranked) you should be able to tell which side the noise is coming from if it is bad.
Look at the outer CV boot. If it is torn, dirt and water have already gotten into the the CV joint and it will most likely need to be replaced. The indication that a CV joint is going bad is that it will click-click-click-click when making a turn. Generally the left side will make the noise in a right hand turn and vice-versa. -- Wink
I think you mean axle shaft joint. A crunching noise, especially when turning corners suggests bad axle shaft joints.
CV (Constant-Velocity) joint
When a constant velocity (CV) joint is going bad, you can hear an audible "clicking" noise when you turn the steering wheel. When a drive shaft u-joint is going bad, you will usually feel/hear a "clunk" when accelerating and/or coming to a stop,
The CV joint boot is bad, and needs to be replaced.
Yes it can, and if it is, trust me this just happened to me, you got to fix it as fast as possible. If you just blow it off you can be looking at some dire consequences. 1) The CV joint can abruptly fail and you will lose all drive power, if one CV joint goes your differential will NOT power the other wheel. 2) if you are driving at a good click, the RPMs on the CV joint will cause it to fail and the CV joint will tear up the inside of your engine. 3) In rare occasions the failure could cause one of your wheels to lock up and you will lose most if not all control of your car. Moral of the story is do not drive any long distances from your house on a bad CV joint unless you have money to blow on a tow. You can buy a replacement CV joint at any Auto Parts store for 75-125 dollars, I advice to get one with a lifetime warranty. DO NOT DRIVE ON A BAD CV JOINT!
Snapping and cracking noises especially under acceleration and while turning.
Sounds like you might have a Constant Velocity Joint (CV joint) going bad.
I think you mean axle shaft joint. The usual symptom of a bad axle shaft joint is a crunching noise when turning corners.
CV joints will make a clicking sound when you take sharp turns, the clicking noise will come from the outside wheel during the turn. Hence if you make a right hand turn the left CV will "CLICK" and vice versa. A u-joint you should feel just as much as you hear. If you have a FWD you most likely do not have a U-Joint, but if you have a AWD,FWD or RWD you will have a u-joint.
A clicking sound either when you are driving or when you make a turn. The Clicking sound will come from the outside wheel during turns, such as if you turn left the right cv will generally make the noise.
Bad CV joint.
very possible a bad cv joint .
Could be a bad tire, loose lug nuts, wheel bearing going bad and if the truck is a 4 wheel drive it could be the front axle CV joint going bad.
Souinds like a bad CV joint in one of the front axel shafts, If it clicks when turning hard right then it will be the right outer CV joint. If it clicks when turning to the left then it's the left outer CV joint.
