I recently posted something and i think i didnt explain good enuff. when i left the clutch out on my corolla in first and reverse and just start moving the click occurs. it sometimes doesnt do it if i have the wheels turned a certain way. i hear no throwoutbearing noise. the driver side half shaft was just replaced and i think all the mounts are in good condition. it could be a bearing but i dont hear the normal growl going down the road.

Re: front end click on 5 speed corolla
Take a look at the ball-joint boots. Look for grease any where, under around the engine towards the back. My Subaru Legacy Outback does the same thing. I've changed both the front axles and ball-joints. Inspected other components, found nothing. Its coming from the differential, I just ignore it there isn't much I can do in my case. In your case it could be the ball joints or tie-rods, inspect those.

Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.
The only thing I can suggest is cleaning the terminals on your battery and cables make sure the battery is charged turn on your key and see if you have lights in the dome and headlights if you do it's a starting issue
this doe's sound like a c v joint problem, normally, they will make a popping, or clicking sound, but you do need to get this checked out before something serious happens . meaning the possibilty of losing a c v axle, or damage to the transaxle.
Remove transmission and check the clutch slave cylinder for leakage. Check fluid level and bleed if necessary. Remove clutch, pocket bearing, throwout bearing and pressure plate. Check for leakage from rear engine seal and front transmission seal. Remove and replace seal(s) if traces of oil are present. Check clutch for oil film and excessive wear, damaged or worn pressure plate (if close to tollerence, replace for convenience). Replace clutch components as necessary and reassemble using your manual for guidance. This should take care of the problem. I see you have changed your fuel filter and given a basic tune up so you should be good to go at that point (check compression and distributor timing) If timing belt has not been replaced around 60,000 then replace or you may end up on the side of the road. if any further questions let me know.
If there is only one click when you go into first or reverse. Then look at the linkage on the clutch pedal. If you push the clutch pedal down and up (without putting it into gear) does it still make the click sound? Is the transmission going into gear normal? Is the throw-out bearing making any noise? A throw-out bearing can make a loud click noise.
The 1st thing that comes to mind is: have u let anyone drive the car recently? I'm wondering if someone hit a curb, pot hole, etc and didn't want u to know about it. Yes, it's a rather 'out there' theory, but it would explain the apparent overnight development of front end problems. You need to have the front suspension components checked (tie rods, control arms, alignment, etc) because something happened as suggested above, or something is very worn and not too safe to drive.
Check it out asap, as this sounds unsafe to drive, please let me know what u find, good luck.
