sounds like your cv joint needs replacing on that single side if you are hearing a grinding# How are your anti roll bar bushes and drop links? It may be a combination of things rather than just the one. Clunking and grinding do not necessarily go together but might be a symptom of a single issue.
Maybe Fixya should set up a sound file facility so that we can listen to such sounds too!!
Hi . It sounds like either ign switch playing up or starter motor bad earth or cable connection or solinoid faulty.
Give the starter motor a tap with a iron bar or a big spanner if it try,s to turn over then take it out and get a change over.
There is a small "circlip"holding the axle in place. Place a pry bar between the cv joint and the transmission and pry the axle out with a sharp snapping movement. This should pop the axle loose from the "circlip". The steering wheel can be turned to gain more working room. Tell those guys to lay off the heat. Hopefully no damage was done and they will be able to get the new axles in without too much trouble. Merry Christmas.
Sounds like a hub bearing. Jack up the front end and place a hand at the top and bottom of each front tire. Try to make the top or bottom of the wheel move inward and outward. This shouldn't move very much at all. The tolerance is measured in .000 of an inch. So if there is any significant movement, the hub bearing has failed. Another good part to check are your ball joints. If the hub isn't your problem, drop me a line and I'll tell you the procedure for checking the ball joints.
1) Try in Neutral and Park. Make sure the transmission cutoff switch is not the problem.
2) Turn on the lights and try the starter. Do the lights dims ? If not no current is going to the starter. Turn off lights.
3) Do you hear a clicking sound from the starter ?' If yes give the starter solenoid several sharp hit with a hammer. The solenoid may be sticking. The starter will have to be replaced in a few days. This will only work for a few times. 4) If you do not hear a clicking sound from the starter then look for the starter relay. I think it's located under the dash. Make sure the wires are connected and the relay works. I believe it clicks also.
If that ok then
5) Look at the fusible link. This is usually under the hood in a box. Sometimes they melt or the contacts get corroded.
