Question about 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Sedan 2.5L 4-cyl. AWD 6-speed Manual
I have just replaceed my two front cv joints, and now there a grinding noise everytime I turn a corner?
Did you completely remove the shafts to repair/replace the cv joints. If so then one shaft may be longer than the other and binding up on cornering. Check that the wheel bearings have been properly adjusted . IF you replaced the 1/2 joint on the shaft still in the transmission the it may not have been assembled properly (cage in wrong) and this is causing a problem. Either way I suggest that you seek an accredited service shop to check out the noise before any damage is done.

SOURCE: drive axle and cv joint
the shaft and the ball cage are already off. the inner piece that goes into the gearbox is not coming out. the boot was changed and I now need to reassemble the parts.

the air bag is not ok, this is exactly what they do when they have a leak, these air bags are shot at about 100,000 miles, they start to leak at the creases, u will see cracks there.

It's possible its the CV, but check your tire pressure, and you may want to jack up that corner of the car and give the tire a spin by hand...not only spin it, but pull the top in and out and look for excessive play. Also look for wear marks on the inside and outside of the tire...

Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.
