    Sounds like the constant velocity joint is bad on one side. AKA CV axle.

That is the driveaxle CV joint. can be a bit if a pain to get the axle out of the transmission and also hard to get out of the hub if its rusted up. Its not the hardest fix in the world though.

My 2005 chevy equinox makes a clunking noise when I turn the steering wheel I don't know what that means.


If it only clunks on a left or right turn. Then check the upper strut mount, these are known to make noise. Or it may need an upper strut plate. God-Bless!

Clunk noise when turning right


Could be the drive axle, but may also be a shifting lower control arm or strut. Usually a faulty drive axle clunks every time the axle turns.

When turning it makes loud noises and is harder to turn, but there seems to be enough fluid in container.


Does it make a clunking noise when turning? How about a continuous clicking noise when turning? That would be tie rod end if clunking, or cv shaft (ball bearings) if continual clicking when turning. Sometimes turning very sharply can put to much pressure on the power steering pump and strain on the belt when turning. Do check your steering linkage and make sure nothing is rubbing against the tire when turning.

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.
