Sounds like your CV Joints are bad. First physical clue to look for is while the car is parked turn the steering wheel all the way right or left and look at the pivot point where front wheel turns at. If the boot is damaged and grease thrown all over underside of car (near CV Joint) See link it will show both a good boot and a torn one with grease. CV Joint how it works symptoms problems
cv joint going bad, grease and boot may fix, probably caused by a cracked cv boot, and now the grease is gone, first thing to check is the boot on the cv joint (that's the shaft/joint that turns the wheels)attatches by a single nut in center of your front wheel (outer joint) if not the outer, then ck the inner (attatches to the transmission) (inner joint). most likely is the outer joint though
You should have your right drive axle inspected, especially the rubber CV joint boot. if it is split open , it is the most likely cause of the grease you found. Unfortunately, the damage to it is already done, and that is what the vibrations are most likely caused by a worn out CV joint. To fix or repair it, you need to replace the cv joint or drive axle assembly
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.
This is your CV joints in your drive shaft(s). Check your CV boots, you will probably find them dirty and greasy, and that grease has been slung in your wheel wells is from your broken CV boots.
I would suggest taking your vehicle to a reliable auto center, and getting a quote for repair.
Please let me know.
sounds like a bad cv shaft. If there is clicking while making a turn, 90% of the time you will need a new cv shaft. The shudder also denotes a bad cv shaft (front axle) Most axle repairs cost up to $400. If you are charged more, find a new mechanic. if the car feels like it floats back and forth (side to side) Be sure to check the control arm bushings. If you are not sure how to inspect them, visit a service center. Any problem in the suspension should be addressed immediatley. Stay safe.
