Jack up the side that had the CV changed just clear of the ground, try rotating it by hand with the wheel on to see if you can pinpoint the noise. My guess is something has been put back on wrongly or there is a spacer missing, or, its the wrong shaft. If that doesn't do it, take the wheel of and drive it on tickover to rotate that hub. Don't get underneath without jack stands. Don't drive it anywhere until its fixed.

SOURCE: cv axle

Probably the wheel bering. If your going down the road and turn to the passenger side and it gets worse, its the drivers side bering and visa versa.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

SOURCE: whining/grinding noise at deceleration

We have the same problem at our shop. We haven't rebuilt the front differential yet. We tried 3 different shafts on 2 different Jeeps and the noise is on both just the same. By greasing the front driveshaft cv joint, we got he noise to quiet some, but it is still way to loud. With the driveshaft out, the noise is gone. We are about to buy a new shaft from the dealer for $600. There are some service bulletins about some noisy driveshafts.

Sounds like bearings to me. Jack car up and check for play. may be hard to detect. May only be on one side. car is kind of new to have bearings going out. That it is quiet on turns is usually a dead giveaway, but usually only gets quiet when turning a certain direction and not the other.

Testimonial: "great job, ended up replacing both wheel bearings in the front, and that took care of problem. thank you..."

SOURCE: Grinding noise when braking, very loud what do I need to do

I would pull all the wheels and inspect the brakes. If the brakes are grinding it should be pretty easy to spot.

Typically C/V joints will start to click when the get really bad. Especially when talking tight turns at slower speeds and accelerating.

I have a 2008 Saturn Astra Xr its making a grinding noise what could it be if it's not the brakes or rotors.


It could be worn out constant velocity joints, if it is noisy only at slow speeds, and turning makes it happen too, get them checked asap.

Front end rotation noise


It should have been thoroughly checked. Noises like these on four wheel drives could several different things. A bearing, CV axle, or the differential, or bearings in the differential. A wheel bearing will make different sounds when making a turn. A CV axle is a constant sound. Differential bearings can come and go, depending on if it is a bearing for the axle or a pinion bearing. Axle side bearings usually make a constant noise. The differential can also come and go. Depends on acceleration or slowing down. All these sounds are also with a vibration. Slight to harsh.

Grinding on the axle


A clicking noise when making sharp turns, such as when backing up or turning through an intersection? CV joint. Look at the axle on the noisy side and there'll be a couple boots. One may be torn. Dirt and water get in there and wash out the grease and wreck the joint. Best place to start.

My 2003 chevy malibu makes a clicking noise when i turn right or left. What could that be?


A clicking noise heard especially while making a turn is most likely a CV (constant Velocity) drive axle(s) that is worn out, and if the CV boots are torn and dirt has been getting into the drive axle CV joint, then replace the CV drive axle assembly and do not have the drive axle re-built or re-booted, especially when you can purchase a complete new CV axle assembly for under $60.00 and here is a link to check one out.

Grinding sound upon hard acceleration after new cv axle installat


Sounds like it should still be at that shop, something is not installed correctly, the cv shafts are splined on each end and must be fully indexed into the transmission (axle). Also they have to be indexed into the wheel bearing housing. Usually the parts will not go back together if they are not indexed correctly, so I would look into the tranaxle for broken pieces, low fluid, etc. Hope this helps.
