You'll get clacking whenever you turn...especially at full turn, slow speed. You'll get a light knock as the vehicle coasts wheich will get worse until the joint fails altogether. If there's grease, you should be able to see if the boot OS cracked. Pry the ridges apart on the black ridged boot covering the joint and you'll see if it needs changing or not. If there's cracks, then dirt and water has gotten in and destroyed the joint.
Check the CV Joints both inner and outer. Probally a boot has failed and the joint has loss all grease.
when turning or when ridin?
It might be a CV joint, when the CV boot is ripped and the grease is partly gone , then it makes noise.
Worn front axle and/or front end component.
Worn left front wheel bearing.
You need to check the front wheel bearings, while driveing down the road stright turn the steering to the left and then to the right and listen to see if the hum noise changes, if not then both bearings are bad left and right sides. If the hum noise changes while turning to the left then right front bearings are bad , if hum noise changes while weaven to the right then left bearings are bad.
Bearings misassembled, tire nosie, brake noise, noise in axle, noise in transmission, etc.
97 grand am rubbing/grinding noise from right front that is not wheelbearing or brakes
If a bearing is bad, You will hear a whining noise from the bad bearing. Try to listen if it is up front or back. The noise will get louder as you go faster. Turn left and right to determine what side the bad bearing is on. If you turn left and the noise gets louder, the right bearing is bad, turn right and the noise gets louder, the left bearing is bad.
nope - none in mine
most likely it is a cv joint going bad, but it can also be a strut tower, or a tie rod... front right strut
It sounds like the cv boot on the axle. When there is a hole, the grease leaks out and it starts to grind the axle. You may need a new left or right axle, and cv boot.
There is something serious wrong, take it back!
your car just drank red bull
Possible wheel bearing, see if noise changes on left & right turns.
have it checked you could have bent the axle and the noise would be the bearing
Could be a bad CV joint or something to that nature.depends on what kind of noise it is
More then likey it is either the left are right front wheel bearing that is bad.
Front cv joints most likely
Are you sure the noise isn't in the front. Sounds like a right front wheel bearing,which is a common problem on these vans.
Worn right front wheel bearing.
RHS front wheel bearing I would say or RHS CV joint, examine the rubber booths on all cv joints and if yhey are dry they are ok, if they are grease spattered this means that there is a fractured booth and centrifical force will throw the grease out and the cv joint runs without grease thus wearing the ball and socket cv joint. If the boots are dry put some glycerene on a rag and rub into them this keeps them supple and won't crack This could also be a bad wheel bearing. Wheel bearings, when bad, are known to only make noise at certain times, such as when turning.
Bad tire? Try in another location on vehicle
worn cv joint =[
