Why is there a clicking noise when steering wheel turned to extreme left?


It always helps to know what kind of car you have, but my best guess with no information is, you have a front wheel drive vehicle and the left CV joint is going bad. The joints will make a clicking sound when they are at the extremes of their travel when going bad.
Sorry, I just noticed your vehicle is shown. I am going with the CV joint answer.

Bad sway bar


Could be CV Shaft or Hub Bearing as well. Jack up the front of the car, support with Jack Stands and check for play in wheels/hubs/bearings/linkage by grabbing wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions for tie rod ends and steering linkage, then 12 and 6 o'clock positions for bearings. You should barely be able to feel play. If you think it is more than acceptable climb under the car while someone else performs the tasks above. Turn wheels for excessive brake noise or out of tolerance discs. Out of tolerance discs will cause premature brake wear and cause pads to move around in the caliper sometimes before starting to grind. Finally, and what I think you're hearing/feeling is the CV Shaft. Grab shaft, move around feeling for excessive play in joint or splines on each end. Turn steering all the way lock to lock and turn wheels at each lock, forward and backward, feel/listen for clicking/popping. Most of the time you can quickly easily diagnose bad CV Joints in a parking lot by slowly, safely driving in a circle forwards and backwards making the joint noise more pronounced. If it is a CV Joint, my advice would be to spend the extra few bucks and replace the whole shaft while you're there. Its quicker and easier requiring less specialty tools to complete the job.

It sounds like a problem within the front differential, possibly broken spider gears. If so broken gear shrapnel may be jamming that wheels output shaft.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Two things to deal with this problem. Suspension bushings can be worn out which may cause it to click and do check the stabilizer bushings for if they are worn out clicking or cracking sound can occur.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hear a clicking noise when backing up and forward


if you hear that clicking noise whether going forward or backward,,it's most likely a bad cv joint on your axle going bad,,or bad. you'll need to replace the axle it's coming from. just have someone listen to the noise while you're going forward or backwards while turning the wheel in motion to determine which axle is bad! hope this helps!!

Driver side seat will not go forward or backwards. Make a clicking sound. Wondering if the motor is going out.


The clicking noise is either from a cable or a cable to the Seat transmission under the seat. One of these parts are stripped out causing the cable to click in the seat transmission
