Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
There isn't a problem in reverse. But when I put it into drive and start moving, then it sounds like a flapping sound near the front wheels. Took it to a mechanic awhile ago, but I would like to fix myself. He said if I don't get it fixed, it will crack and then water can get inside and rust. I don't know what it's called that needs to be replaced. Help?
If you Jeep is equipped with CV axles ( I can't tell b/c I don't see a year model or if it's a standard Cherokee or a Grand Cherokee, or even if it's 4x4), then he may have been referring to your CV axle boots. They are rubber boots that keep grease inside so as to lube the CV joint. It also keep the road grime and gunk out.
If the rubber boot cracks, then yes, stuff will get in there and it'll make it worse.
It's possible he could have been talking about the inside wheel well lining also. It's a little hard to tell according to the description. But if it's fallen it's possible it may not make noise in reverse, but only in drive. And yes, when it breaks it'll allow road stuff to get up in the front fender and make it rust out.
Both of these projects are pretty advanced, especially the CV boot.
