That definitely sounds like a cv joint issue...the turning part was a dead giveaway. Though it only happens occasionally when turning, you'll see (or in this case hear) it more frequently as they get worse. Best case scenario could be that they need to be greased instead of replaced...best of luck!

It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

What about the strut mounts. Have the ball joints be checked. If u gas the car does it pop? Or maybe a wheel bering if its really loose.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am loud popping noise from front end drivers?


Hey there Chris.

Without actually being there to hear it for myself, I'm going to 'spitball guess' and say it's a good possibility a CV joint is, or has gone bad.

The drive, or CV axles have rubber accordion looking boots on each end of the shaft. One out by the wheel (likely suspect) and one by the the transmission (transaxle).

If the boot gets ripped or damaged it will allow the grease from inside to escape and dirt and water to get inside. Thus ruining the CV joint.

I'm NOT saying for sure this is the problem.

You can check if the boots are damaged or if it looks like grease it splattered from the boot. If it is, at the very least the boot and joint will need replaced.

Actually it's probably going to be less expensive and easier to replace the entire CV shaft rather than installing a single joint and boot.

The 'popping' sound from a CV joint USUALLY shows up when accelerating while the front wheels are turned. That's not always the case, but is pretty common.

The other possibility is the 'popping' is a lower ball joint or a bad upper strut mount.

If the 'pop' happens when hitting a bump then those would be more suspect than the CV joint.

IF that's the case then you may be able to simply bounce that corner of the car to try to make the 'pop' happen while sitting still.

If you can do that then you should be able to detect where the sound is coming from.

Hopes this helps.

I have a 1997 Ford explorer. There is a funny clicking noise coming from the driver side front. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like a kid riding his bike with a playing card on the tire


If you have front wheel drive the clicking when car is in motion only could be a cv joint on its way out. They never leave this world quietly, and when they finally go, you stop going!

Check the front drive shaft u-joint, and front cv shafts on the front axle, may be worn and need to be replaced. These parts will make a clicking or popping noise may sound like a thud sound.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Clicking, sticking sound from front end, drivers side


It is your cv joint that is bad. If you jack the van up on that side, check to see if the boot is ripped...and more than likely your cv joint is about shot...even if the boot is intact.

The cv joint is bad....
