You need to have it towed immediately to a service shop, no rigging here. This is a safety issue and I would not drive it. It could be a bad tire, balljoint, tie rod, p/s rack, or wheel bearing, etc, but either way it needs to be looked at by a professional, and get repaired. You cant put a price on your life.

Where is toyota constant velocity u-joint located


Like all front-drive cars using CV joints, there are 4 CV joints on the car near the engine. The vehicle has 2 axles (left and right, driving the corresponding front wheel). Each axle has 2 joints, one on each end. Typically the outer CV joints fail first, as their range of movement is greater due to steering the vehicle.

In modern practice the entire left or right axle is replaced when a CV joint goes bad.

Constant Velocity joints and U-joints perform a similar function, but are not really the same thing. U-joints are more typically used on rear-drive or truck-based 4WD vehicles.

Makes noise when i turn left and right


depending on what type of noise, wors't case it could be bad cv joints. Try turning the wheel all the way left and step on the gas to see if the noise is there, then try right turn.

I have a touareg 2004 and my problem is that when steering to the max left or max right and drive slowly i feel vibration in the wheels ..is it a gear problem???


No, it's the CV joints on the axles. Check the boots at both ends of each axle for tears. If torn, the CV joints are probably worn out. If you have more questions, please reply.

What's involved in changing a cv joint in a 2000 Rav 4? I have very good mechanical abilities & have changed cv joints before (about 10 years ago)


Easy enough job really, jack car up, put axel stand under. remove wheel - remove hub nut, remove pinch bolt - prise open the pinch bolt part (sorry cant rem name) pop out the hub from the lower arm. Remove CV join from drive shaft. Usually a tap will pop it out.. sometimes theres a circlip that need removing (models vary). Grease up new CV joint - put grease in new boot, pop boot over drive shaft. put cv join on (replace circlip if provided in kit). join cv to hub - attach CV boot fully. fasten hub nut, replace wheel.

done. might need tracking again or aligning once you do this.

1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving


It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

Subaru cv axle noise?


Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.
