Vibration coming from front axle when coming to a stop it gets worse, brakes are good , maybe cv joint?


if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.

When driving around corners the front end makes a wroubbling sound. on the straigth aways the sound gone. is it the CV joints? wheel bearings? U joints? or what should I be looking for? 98 Ford Escort zx2...


Does it happen turning in both direrctions? It could be cv joints. from a standstill,turn the wheel hard to the right and accelerate in a circle. do the same on a left turn. If you hear a clicking sound, it's bad cv joints. inspect the rubber boot for tears & stress cracks. once the grease escapes,the joint is no good

Clicking on front wheel on vw golf v6 4motion


Sound by your description that your CV joint has gone bad and will need to be replaced as soon as you can. Once your CV joint fails 100%, your going to have to get the car towed to a repair shop. Save some money and have the CV joint replaced be fore you have to get it towed in to a shop or at worst, get you stranded some place where you don't want to be. Be safe and call around for prices to replacing the CV joint. Good luck and keep us posted.

Grinding noise changes with speed stops when turned right. replaced left front wheel bearing. noise is still there. whats wrong ?


Does sound stop when you turn LEFT?

Turning RIGHT puts the heavy load on the LEFT front wheel.
That initially STOPPED the noise, correct? So why did you change L?

Turning LEFT puts the load on the RIGHT. Did you change the RIGHT?

Let's say this:
If turning RIGHT stops the noise, it's the RIGHT one that's likely bad.
If turning LEFT stops the noise, it's the LEFT one that's more likely bad.

Make sense? Turning RIGHT loads the LEFT wheel; and vice-versa as the WEIGHT SHIFTS AWAY FROM THE TURN.

More than likely it is what some folks call a CV joint problem, not wheel bearings. Try backing up and then going forward to see if "clunking sound" or a sharp "bang" is heard. Wheel bearings and CV joints only work if smooth. Sometimes a BEARING RACE is bad. Also, a bad spindle / part of the CV joint / transaxle assembly worn or badly machined. If in a WET ENVIRONMENT especially, u may want to try marine grade grease or teflon-added grease.




Does sound come from POWER STEERING PUMP area?

I have a 1995 escort 1.4, when driving it has started to make a scratching clicking sound from the front passenger side wheel area, it stops when the clutch is pressed or in netrual and is worst when...


Sounds to me like the CV joint is going bad.
If the little accordian like boot is torn or cracked it will get water and **** inside and go bad quickly. If it goes bad it will crack the boot in most cases. It the car has 80,000 miles or more on it you should have a mechanic look at both CV joints on each side of the car.
If any of the CV joints are bad you should change them all because you do about the same ammount of work and you get the whole drive system done right.
The CV joint is just a universal joint for a front wheel drive. As it gets worse it will transfer the vibration to the engine and transmition which will cause more problems right away so you don't want that to happen. You should have it checked right away.

Popping sound when turning. axle looks good. no leaks. could it be the wheel bearing?


Could be the bearing..

Is it a clicking sound ??
If so - could be a CV joint..

Check all the CV boots (the rubber covers over the CV joints)..

Push on them looking for splits,, seperatiob or cracks.. If you see anything like that -rest assured you have a CV joint problem..

If boots go bad & are replaced in time (& CV joints greased) they can be saved.. If it has been too long - the joint will need to be replaed too..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Humming sound when going over 30 mph


The out put shaft bearing may have gone bad and the transmission oil is leaking out and running down the CV joint on the out side. The other thing to is check the CV Joint, if it's the inside joint. It will not make any clicking noise, just the out side joint where the wheel hub is and when your making a turns is when it makes the clicking noise. The best thing to do is to jack the car up and make sure you use stands to secure it to make sure the car does not comedown on you. Inspect the CV joint, look for excessive play and oil leak from the transmission if any. Good luck and keep me posted, Oh and don't for get to check your transmission fluid level.
