What else could make a knocking noise only in reverse?

I replaced my front passenger side cv axel. But it is still making a knocking sound when I turn right in reverse.

    I replaced the passenger side cx axel because the boot was torn in half.

Depends on where it's coming from. It could be your tranny. It could also be loose in you ball joint or a arm bushings. This happened in my 81 audi. Everything was so loose that it made the cv click. Did you check other cv axle?

It could be the wheel bearing on the left side is going bad. When you turn right the weight shifts to the left driver's side it is then when you might be able to hear it. The faster you turn the more load on the bearing.

SOURCE: driver's side wheel knocking during a slow sharp turn

I had a simular problem, it turned out to be a CV axle. Check all the inner and outer boots for breakage. It also may be the front differential. Most subaru owners or garages (except a dealer) don't know about the dipstick to check the gear oil in the front differential of an automatic and they end up going dry(diff on a manuel tranie is lubed with the same gear oil as the tranie and usualy dont have this problem). The automatic transmission fluid dipstick is on the driverside near the break cylinder and the gear oil dipstick is on the passenger side of the tranie just above where the CV axle attaches to the tranie(its the same yellow as the oil cap and has a finger loop. If the fluid has not been checked in a long time the stick may be stuck in the tube. If the stick is not reading when you pull it out you will want to drain the old diff fluid to remove any metal shavings produced from running the diff dry and refill with 80w90 gear oil. Good luck, hope it helps.

SOURCE: subaru cv axle noise?

Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.

If I understand you correctly, you feel a vibration it the brake pedal when you apply the brakes. Is that correct?
Have your brake rotors re surfaced; they are warped.

"engine makes cavitating noise" ....what does this mean?

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.

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:).

There is a popping sound coming from the front end of my car when I accelerate but only when my car is moving, not when it is parked. Any ideas?


Sounds like your half shafts are going bad. Does it make this noise when turning left or right? If it does your half shafts have gone bad.

Knocking sounds coming from the left front wheel.


You can check your front hubs(bearings) and the CV joints. If they check out then you may have a trani issue.

it sounds as if your CV joint may be going bad, unfortunatly i can't tell you how to check it yourself.

Knocking sound


maybe cv joints. check cv boots to see if torn or look out for grease marks in the area behind front wheel. This would be more clicking noise though and not banging.
