    How quickly should that be repaired once the clicking noise is heard? is it something that is okay to drive with for another week or so?

Check the boots at the ends of the front axles...If one is torn the joint has likely failed and needs to be replaced.

    Naturally, you should take care of it as soon as possible. If the noise just started, likely you could drive it for a week without damaging anything, but I would not recommend any expressway driving...just local short trips. I have seen joints last for months after they become noisy but ignoring that can eventually cause a problem. If it were mine, I'd change it right away.

What kind of noise will you hear with bad right wheel bearing? It sounds like a whirl behind radio and gets louder with increased speed over 35mph.


the noise should change or go away when you turn the wheel to the right or left. if it does it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Typically if you turn to the left and it gets louder its the right side if you turn to the right and it gets louder its the left side. Or if you turn to the right and it goes away its the right side and if it goes away when turning to the left it is the left side.

Another thing you can do is safely jack up the front of the vehicle. With the transmission in neutral rotate each wheel by hand while holding onto the strut spring with your other hand. You should be able to feel the noise you hear in the strut spring if it is the bearing.

Why is there a knocking sound when turning?


to test make your turn nice and slow with no throttle, then make the same turn accelerating slightly, if you hear the knocking/popping noise louder when accelerating, then it is probably the CV axels. get a free inspection at mieneke:).

Knocking when i turn right, was told it was cv joint, so changed right handside as thats the side all the noise comes from, but still not stopped knocking. have i changed the wrong side, or is it something...


yes you changed the wrong side if it knocks when you turn right its the left side because turning right shifts all the wait on the left side and puts a load on the joint causing it to knock
