Clickin when I turn

I have a 2000 Hyndai elantra. Everytime I make a turn there is a loud clicking noise. Do you think it's my cv axles? If it is how much would it cost to get replaced?

    What is the base cost? Also, is it cheaper to replace the muffler at the same time if it is looking rough, even if it isn't making excessive noise yet?

It's your CV joints. If you look at them (the outer joints, out by the wheels) you will likely see torn rubber boots and axle grease coming out. You can usually get remanufactured axles (which carry a warranty) from an auto parts store for $50-70 each (plus a core charge of nearly that much, which is returned to you when you bring back your bad axles). Labor is 1-2 hours per side from what I've seen, so the rate will vary depending on the hourly charge of the shop you choose.

    Leetamara, if we both said the same thing, it's because we answered at the same time. When I opened the question, there were no answers listed. Relax.

Yes, one of your axles is worn out. At my shop in Tacoma, Wa. I charge $160.00 parts AND labor to replace an axle. If someone whats to charge a bunch more than that run away. Definitely do some shopping on the best deal on axle replacement in your area. This is an easy job and most shops can get the part for about $70.00 or less. Watch out for upcharges on the part. It takes about 1/2 hour to an hour to replace an axle. Alot of shops will try to take advantage of the customer and charge WAY TOO MUCH for this job.

    I'm pretty positive I said the same thing the first time. I'm still wondering why people get on this site and repeat the same stuff that other people state for a fix.

When turning graunching noise from diff?


If it's front wheel drive your cv joints are bad. It should sound like a loud clicking almost grinding sound everytime you turn. They can be rebuilt but i think it's easier just to replace the whole axle. If it was a differential problem you should be able to hear it all the time not just turning. Differential use gear oil and the guy at autozone can tell you how much it holds and what type to use.

Grinding noise when braking, very loud what do I need to do


I would pull all the wheels and inspect the brakes. If the brakes are grinding it should be pretty easy to spot.

Typically C/V joints will start to click when the get really bad. Especially when talking tight turns at slower speeds and accelerating.

Have a plymouth breeze, every time I turn left it was making a loud clicking noise, now it sounds like a really bad loud scrubbing noise when I turned and drive starting last night. So it I cant drive it....


Probably a bad CV joint on one of your drive axles to the front wheels. You have two drive axles coming out of the transaxle, one to each front wheel, and both have an inner CV joint where they enter the transaxle, and an outer CV joint where the axles fit into the wheel hub. (A CV joint is really like the old U-joints, serving the same purpose.) A clicking noise on turning is usually a badly worn outer CV joint. The cheapest fix is to buy a remanufactured half-shaft for your car. That is the axle shaft with both CV joints at each end inspected and reconditioned with new grease and CV boots installed. You need to know which side is bad before buying. The half-shaft is sold ready to install. Someone with good mechanical skills will need to remove the old one and replace it with the new reconditioned axle shaft, or half shaft as they are also called. The last time I bought one (about two years ago) the cost was reasonable- about $65.00. That is less than the cost of one new CV joint.
Hope this helps you out.

Making a clickin nosie


The clicking you hear is likely caused by the front drive axles having a worn out CV (constant velocity) joint or it has lost its grease due to a torn rubber dust seal boot, this will be the outside CV joint, there are 4 CV axle joints total, 2 on each side. Any front end or tire shop will look at this for free in most cases.

When i back out of driveway hear click...click from front wheel.neighbor mrechanic says it is axle?-2000 elantra. is this true??


Normally when the cv axles get worn, they click when turning the wheels while rolling. It will not be a single click, but multiple clicks. If this is what you are experiencing, then your mechanic is correct.

Accelerated clicking/knocking noise when i start driving


sounds like your CV joints are worn out. If the clicking noise gets worse when turning then its a definite possibility. Also check the CV joint boots for splits as this can quickly wear them out. The dust mixes with the grease to form a grinding paste.
