Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

My 02 impala had a bad front left cv axel. I replaced it but continued to hear noise. Clicking, when cutting wheel to back up... Sumtimes it makes a weird wobble motion if cutting the wheel hard pulling out. Transmission started acting funny, wouldnt shift. All the fluid was gone. Took to shop. Said it was probably the axel seal but when repairing said that the axel wasn't correctly in place. Said they fixed it and didn't hear anything but I immediately heard the same noise and has the same wobble when cutting wheel hard. What could this be from??

I would start with your lower control arm bushes, would not hurt to check all your front end for wear, not forgetting your wheel bearings, any wear causes simular noise and is a saftey issue

Take it back to the workshop and let them have a look for you,Mainly as well because iam having trouble understanding your description as obviously you were with no fault of your own taught to spell with that phonetic system where you spell as you say it which is not correct as it causes untold problems for other english speakers who were taught correctly by a teacher with a slipper in her hand ,one with a pink ribbon and one with a blue and for every word you spelt wrongly you got a strike on the back of the hand .Anyway the problem you have with the car could be the same problem as previous ,yes someone has had a look and replaced the seal but as iam unfamilar with this american produced vehicle then i do not know the layout as to weither their is a inside universal or not ,to solve this problem i would need to see the car and drive the vehicle then i would know exactly where and how hard to hit it with the hammer ,So please return it to the workshop and ask nicely if someone prefferably one of the older mechanics could have a test drive for you as although it has had the seal changed i dont think anyone has test driven it for you which is down to the gara ge ,all this bonus work causes problems like this where the mechanics are only interested in how many jobs can be knocked out in a day for the max bonus and weither the fault is cured or not doesnt matter only the dollar sign.

First just crawl under it and grab your axles and see if you can shake them and get any movement from either of them this will tell you if you have a loose CV joint or not .. thanks Jerry holler if you need more .

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Since this is front wheel drive I have to say yes. You have a bad CV joint. That clicking sound is typically a bad CV joint or one that was improperly installed. Take it back to mechanic that did the work and make him do it correctly.

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.

Front end clicking noise on 96 subaru impreza


jack the wheel up and and sharp spin left and right should help you locate the problem. did you change both sets of the universal joints, if so did you really pack them well with the grease as sometimes if the grease is not well packed you can get a dry spot and this will heat up and become damaged.
