Question about 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

Open Question

04 Trailblazer noise coming from left front inner cv joint area?

Raised vehicle up and removed tires. Right side spins easily and quietly. Driver side has alot of resistance and rough spots while turning. Noise seems to be coming from either cv joint or where it goes into differential. This happened after using 4 wheel drive. Front left tire started to lock up so i switched back to 2 wheel drive. Only front left wheel/axle affected. Is there a bearing on the differential where axle enters? Since the right side is unaffected, it leads me to believe it is not the differential that is the problem but the driver side cv joint. Is this correct? Thank you!

SOURCE: Vibration and noise from front end while driving

Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: Stuck with this problem

The front axle isnt disengaging completely. You need to probably replace the vaccum solinoid located right above your distributor on the firewall. To test you simply disconnect the two vaccum lines and splice them together. Then turn the 4wd on and see if all is normal.

I have a 1997 Ford explorer. There is a funny clicking noise coming from the driver side front. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like a kid riding his bike with a playing card on the tire


If you have front wheel drive the clicking when car is in motion only could be a cv joint on its way out. They never leave this world quietly, and when they finally go, you stop going!

When you turn to the right there is a noise coming from the left front wheel


Have the CV joints replaced by your vehicle maintenance center. With CV joints the noise nearly allways comes from the opposite side that the one that you are turning to. Turn right, noise, Left side CV joint to be replaced.
Don't replace only the one side but have both replaced

How do check the front wheel bearing and cv joint on 2001honda civic


The wheel hub brg assy you will hear when going from
around 25 thru 45 mph

Then you remove the brake rotor & feel for wear in the bearing
Not so easy with drive axles in there

If you do one side-- do both (replace)

The CV Joints are checked on a lift or off the ground
by hand, for ripped boots & play in the joints

Next you go into a parking lot or driveway where you can
go forward to check inner joints for a noise, with the wheels
turned all the way & backwards for the outer joints making
noise,wheels turned fully, both directions

Sounds like a bad hub bearing.If you sway from one side to another the noise should change.If you go left and the noise and the noise is still there then it`s the right side and if you turn right and the noise is still there it is the left side.You may also have both front hub bearings out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

C V Joints can make a lot of noises. Sounds to me like you either bent the inner fender or if it is plastic you may have pulled it loose and it looks normal but it is just sitting in place with the push pins out of their intended holes. When you turn and or hit a high speed it hits the wheel/tire. Try putting on some gloves and then pulling medium strength on the fender well and surrounding areas to see if that is the problem -

ck the CV boot. if its broken you need a new cv axle, if its ok, jack up the car so both wheels are off the ground. either put the car in drive or just manually spin each front wheel while gripping the coil spring for the front strut. if you feel any (roughness) at all, that wheel bearing is bad. it should be smooth. if you have a bad one you will know it by this method. Even good mechanics sometimes replace the wrong bearing, but this 100% works every time.

CV-joint (axle) but most likely the wheel bearing like mentioned. When you turn right the weight shifts to the left taking the load off the right passenger side bearing.
