Most likely this a broken CV joint and this means replacing the axle.

Is there a bearing or bushing on the shaft that the left axle slides onto on a 1999 Bonneville se?


i have been fooled by this one way to many times. when a wheel bearing or hub assesembly is making noise, it will sound like it is comming from the other side. i do not know why this is. but one test will prove if and which one. when growling noise occurs, notice, when turning left or right, does noise get louder and quieter as you turn? if so then it is wheel bearing. when turning left the right side will make more noise. when turning right the left side will make more noise. if always the same then, tires or transmission need addressing. the cv axle does not make a growling noise, unless front wheel drive car does not move, it makes a clicking or poping noise. sorry but at least you dont have to replace other axle

My Toyota vista is making noise when I make a sharp turn what could It be ?,


Depends on the kind of noise. Worn CV joints will make clicking sounds, worn bearings can make whining/grinding sounds. Worn out front end parts can also make strange sounds squeeling, clunking, grating and many other kinds of noises. The kind of noise can be used to identify the source.

Front end has clicking or popping noise when making sharp turns right or left when vehicle is in drive or reverse. there is no noise when car is coasting in neutral and making the same tight turns. Any...


The noise is probably warn constant velocity joint in the half shafts the rubber boots are probably broken on 1 or both sides dirt enters in through the broken boot and causes wear which damages the joints they should be replaced before they break and cause serious damage

Humming noise from front left side


I hate to say it, but it sounds like something in the differential - transmission. The part about the noise and coasting fits a differential bearing noise. Making turns could put extra load on the bearings and gears in the transmission.

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.

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?

Clicking noise when i turn left


Sounds like constant velocity joints at the end of the drive shaft, the joints at the end of the drive shaft that allow the wheel to swivel, to turn. Only makes noise when turning left or right and is usually only from one side.
Hope this is of help. jccampbell@eircom.net
