Need more info. CV joints when they go bad make a noise when turning. Sound like a crunching sound. Easy way to check is to simple part the car, turn the wheel all the way to one side and look at the boots. If they have a tear or show signs of leaking, you could have a bad one.

SOURCE: CV joint replacement

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

SOURCE: cv joints

Definitely not easy.You need a way to jack the front end and support it safely.Have to use a pretty powerful 1/2" drive air gun as a couple hundred foot pounds is required to remove the axle nuts,as well as a large socket to fit the axle nut.You also have to break the ball joints loose,and have a large pry bar to remove the axles from the trans while being careful of the axle seals.

SOURCE: Clicking noise while turning

Hi Kigabth,
It could be the suspension springs...try looking at the rubber custions which they rest on....You'll need spring compressors if you want to do the job yourself....If you just want to pin point the problem, use a piece of rubber pipe and get someone to turn the wheels while you listen....You can then tell your repair shop what you want done.

All the best

SOURCE: changing the cv joints in 89 honda crx

No you do not need to remove the motor. You will need to remove the driveshaft from the gearbox (driver side) so you may need to drain the gearbox oil. Passenger side has an intermediate shaft and the drive shaft can be split without removing from the gearbox.

One the shaft is off remove the outer boot and nock the old CV joint off with a hammer and somthing to take the impact without damaging the joint (incase its re-useable). I used the rubber end of a screwdriver on the joint and hit the metal end of the driver with a hammer.

If the CV joint boot you have recieved is not the strechy type you will need to slide it onto the shaft prior to installing the new joint.


To install the new joint can be a chew. There is a circlip seated in a groove on the outer splines of the driveshaft. This clip is slightly larger than the groove it sits in must be "negotiated" into the groove while you slide the new cv joint over (Use a flathead screwdriver to prize the circlip in as you push the new CV joint onto the shaft.) Once you get this right the CV joint will slide down and the circlip will make an audiable click and pop out of the groove on the inside of the joint holding the join in place.

Pack the joint with the grease provided. Slide the boot over and fasten the boot in place with the metal straps and put your car back together.

Beware of new Circlips - my old one was mishapen so I used the new one provided and it was massive in comparison. It took me and a friend a good hour and a half just to get the new CV joint over the circlip - patience is a virtue :D

Incase you can get the shafts out....

Best way is to split the bottom ball joint and suspension wishbone. I'm not a massive fan of this as bottom ball joints have caused me too many issues. I split the tom ball joint and the tracking rod end to give enough movement to get the driveshafts out.

Also never pull on the driveshaft its self as this can pull apart the inner joint inside its boot which is a real faff on to get back together (trust me). Use a screwdriver or small crow bar to prize the shaft out at the gearbox end.

When I turn into a parking space or onto a street it sounds like something clicking or vibrating even when i push my clutch in


Most clicking/popping noises when turning indicate a bad ball joint in the front axle. The CV joint has a boot over it that will eventually rip, causing the grease inside to be slung out. Dirt and moisture will get in there and cause the smooth joint to pop when under stress, like turning.

Bad sway bar


Could be CV Shaft or Hub Bearing as well. Jack up the front of the car, support with Jack Stands and check for play in wheels/hubs/bearings/linkage by grabbing wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions for tie rod ends and steering linkage, then 12 and 6 o'clock positions for bearings. You should barely be able to feel play. If you think it is more than acceptable climb under the car while someone else performs the tasks above. Turn wheels for excessive brake noise or out of tolerance discs. Out of tolerance discs will cause premature brake wear and cause pads to move around in the caliper sometimes before starting to grind. Finally, and what I think you're hearing/feeling is the CV Shaft. Grab shaft, move around feeling for excessive play in joint or splines on each end. Turn steering all the way lock to lock and turn wheels at each lock, forward and backward, feel/listen for clicking/popping. Most of the time you can quickly easily diagnose bad CV Joints in a parking lot by slowly, safely driving in a circle forwards and backwards making the joint noise more pronounced. If it is a CV Joint, my advice would be to spend the extra few bucks and replace the whole shaft while you're there. Its quicker and easier requiring less specialty tools to complete the job.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers


popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

I just asked this question a minute ago but I want to clarify a little more. Got a buddy of mine who is having a car issue and was hoping you guys could help out. We are wondering if bad CV joints can lead...


Much of the symptoms you describe sound like a CV joint. I would take it to the dealer and insist that it be fixed... What is bothering me though is under normal operating conditions, CV joints and boots are engineered to last upwards of 150,000 miles. Some go the distance, but a lot reach the end of the road far short of their design life. According to one major aftermarket supplier of replacement axle shafts, CV joint shafts are typically being replaced at anywhere from 70,000 miles to 130,000 miles.

Read this and see if you agree...
SYMPTOMS OF CV JOINT FAILURE
Bad boots are not the only thing you need to look for. You also need to listen for noise or complaints that might indicate a CV joint problem. These include:

  • Popping or clicking noises when turning. This almost always indicates a worn or damaged outer CV joint. To verify this condition, place the vehicle in reverse, crank the steering wheel to one side and drive the vehicle backwards in a circle (check the rearview mirror first!). If the noise gets louder, it confirms the diagnosis and the need for a new CV joint or replacement shaft assembly.
  • A "clunk" when accelerating, decelerating or when putting the transaxle into drive. The noise comes from excessive play in the inner joint on FWD applications, either inner or outer joints in a RWD independent suspension, or from the driveshaft CV joints or U-joint in a RWD or AWD powertrain. The same kind of noise can also be produced by excessive backlash in differential gears. To verify the condition, back the vehicle up, alternately accelerating and decelerating while in reverse. If the clunk or shudder is more pronounced, it confirms a bad inner joint.
  • A humming or growling noise. Sometimes due to inadequate lubrication in either the inner or outer CV joint, this symptom is more often due to worn or damaged wheel bearings, a bad intermediate shaft bearing on equal length halfshaft transaxles, or due to worn shaft bearings within the transaxle.
  • A shudder or vibration when accelerating. May be caused by play in the inboard or outboard joints, but the most likely cause is a worn inboard plunge joint. Similar vibrations can also be caused by a bad intermediate shaft bearing on transaxles with equal length halfshafts, or by bad motor mounts on FWD vehicles with transverse-mounted engines.
  • A vibration that increases with speed. This symptom is rarely caused by a failing CV joint. An out-of-balance tire or wheel, an out-of-round tire or wheel, or a bent rim are the more likely causes.

Will the caster and camber adjustment bolts cause a popping noise while turning. My ball joints are fine, no play in the box hardly, new pitman and idler arm, what else would pop. I have been told the...


Popping noise when turning is usually CV joints. Is this a 4wd? One more thing to check, is your sway bar bolts, as they can break off, or wear grooves on them, and pop as they have pressure put on them. If the popping noise is something that happens once, and not a continuous thing when you're turning, most of the time it's ball joints though. Did you replace them? How did you check them? Easy way to tell, is to jack the wheel up, and if it slides out slightly when it gets ready to clear the pavement, then you're almost certain it is ball joints.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.

1991 prelude drivetrain problem


Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0

2002 volkswagen jetta, I have a roaring sound when I accelerate


If you hear the noise while the car is moving and usually accelerating and there is no noise when it is not moving then it could be a problem with the transmission, CV Joints or wheel bearings. From the way you describe it sounds like the CV Joints. These are the ones that transfer power from the transmission to the wheel while they allow the suspension to move up and down. If they wear out or get dirty they will start making a grinding / buzzing sound. You will find them ( 2 on each side ) connecting the center of the wheel to the transmission. There are 2 rubber boots protecting them, one close to the transmission, one close to the wheel. The joints have to be kept lubricated and clean, if any of these rubber boots is broken there is a good possibility that the CV Joint is failing and making the noise. If this is the case it will need replacement.
