Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
While driving in 4H range on snow a metallic clanking from the left front wheel area that seemed to be at the same speed as tire rotation. Came & went until I got home. Is the power shaft to the wheel broken? Or a pinion. I am not a mechanic!
Loose wheel, bad bearing, cv joint. in that order to check. Put in four whell drive and turn a sharp circle and it should help isolate, if yu could have someone outside walking beside the area the noise is coming from, I think the most likely thing will be the cv joint.
