Question about 1992 Honda Accord
I have a 1992 Honda Accord EX-R and I find that when I turn right and left at a lower speed that there is a clunking/rattling sound coming from the front end. What could this be? Is my tire gonna fall off? What can I do to troubleshoot this myself prior to taking it to a garage? Thanks for any input on this.
It's probably your cv (constant velocity) joint. Jack up the honda and put it on safety stands, look at the area behind the center of both front wheels, there is a rubber boot. This boot protects the cv joint from dirt, road grime, water, salt, etc. If you see splits in it or grease on the boot, it has deteriorated, and is letting contaniments in. The damage has already been done if it makes a rattling noise going around corners at slow speed. I changed both cv joints (purchased rebuilt axles for $49 each) in my 92, but it is a big job labor wise. There's a lot to take apart to remove the axles.

Why would there be a cv joint in the rear on a front wheel drive car
