I concur with cwradio73 the first answer, if you are not handy with tools then pay someone, you will do more damage than good.

The CV joints have worn out on car. They can be replaced I would do both left an right if you do, one is not far behind the other. Common complaint you have. If you do it yourself make sure you have all the tools. Really should have a mechanic do the job. Sometimes on older cars things get stuck an difficult to remove. Some special tools are needed at times. But its a common on front wheel drive cars

This is a damaged torque converter and you may have a blown shift solenoid as well. check the fluid level. i suspect major torque converter damage.

SOURCE: Clicking while turning

Have you been the one doing the work if not fire your mechanic. It sounds to me like a wheel bearing.
to check jack up the front wheels , leave the tires on, then grab teh tire move the wheel up/down then left/right then in/out if it moves in any of these directions you got a problem in and out is the bearing, left to right a steering componant, up down ball joint general slop is either a CV joint or the wheel bearing again.
If that is all good on both sides then is may be teh trransmission has an issue get it to a shop for a look. hope this helps

Clicking noise from transmission when taking right turn or sitting with driver side down hill


could be the steering box or gear... check there for the noise. You really can't tell where noise comes from from inside a car. They can be very transient

check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

Noises from axles can be really deceiving. The sound is transfered throuh the transaxle and can resonate through the entire vehicle. The turning to the left thing makes it sound like a problem in the right wheel/axle area. Wheel bearings and axles tend to make worse noise when they are on the OUTSIDE of the turn. More of the vehicle weight is shifted to the outside due to centrifugal force. Thus, if the noise is louder when turning left, this puts the right axle to the outside of the turn and the most likely to be the source of the noise. (and vise-versa) The fact that the noise calms down while cruising makes me believe that it is not a wheel bearing. Wheel bearings can make more noise in turns, however, they usually make a "roaring" or loud "humming" noise that gets louder with speed. An axle is more likely to change or get louder according to engine load more than rotational speed. (Way worse while accelerating or climbing a hill) I would be taking a hard look at the right axle.

will try to assist you. did you have your clutch replaced professionally? if it's a popping or cracking sound when accelerating or turning, it's most likely a c.v. axle going bad. either on driver or passenger side in the front of the car right?if it is a bad c.v. axle it will pop and crack when you turn wheel from left to right at low r.p.m. if not this,you may have brake issues. either it's a grinding sound while accelerating or decellerating,as long as cars in motion the noise will persist.try tapping your brakes while in a parking lot in slow gear,hear something from driver front,have a passenger with the widow down on passenger side, hear it from front passenger side? the thing i go by is what i hear when i test drive to diagnose an issue with a vehicle is,axles?popping and cracking when turning the steering wheel from left to right at low speed. [axle problem] grinding,scraping sound? brake issues! hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com and we are here for you 24/7 7days per week thank you!!!!

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.
