Is the knocking only on turns from the front and it is a fast continual knocking?
If the installation was correct.......sounds like the CV joints are possibly defective.
When changing CV joints.......always put in complete shaft assemblies that use NEW joints....not rebuilt joints.The price is almost the same.

There is a noise from the front end of my 2001 odyssey which became noticeable about 400 km ago. It started out as a clicking/knocking sound and is cyclical with wheel/driveline rotation/speed and would be...


it sure sounds like wheel bearings, however, the clicking/knocking sound is more related to the cv joints.
If the spindle nut was loose, it would account for a knocking sound/feel as well. Have the bearings checked before you spend crazy amounts on cv joints.

WHEN TURING KNOCKING SOUND COMMING FROM FRONT LEFT, CAN FEEL IT THROUGH THE STEERING WHEEL, HELP, THANK YOU , I HAVE A 2001 CHEVY TAHOE


That is caused by a worn CV joint (constant velocity joint), the universal flexible joint on the end of the front drive shaft. You should get this checked/repaired as soon as possible, if it fails it can cause other damage and leave you stranded
The noise is probably worse when you turn the wheel from full lock to full lock in either direction.

Steering wheel violently shakes.


that is usually caused by bad engine mount this condition usually changes the distance of the cv joint and the differential which cause the cv joint to shake. also check your ball joints.

Mechanical knocking or clicking noise during lowspeed turns 1996 840 wagon


It is a front-wheel-drive car, right? It sounds like the CV joints are starting to go bad. CV joints connect the driveshafts of the engine to the front axles: they are basically very fancy versions of traditional 'U-joints' found on rear-drive cars. They are protected by a big rubber boot, which eventually gets ripped or whatever, then dirt gets in, which starts to grind away at the joint. It's probably $500 to replace the CV joints, maybe more on a Volvo. The good thing is, the sound will get much, MUCH worse before it actually falls apart and leaves you stranded. So you have some time before you HAVE to get it repaired.

Good Luck!

Accelerated clicking/knocking noise when i start driving


sounds like your CV joints are worn out. If the clicking noise gets worse when turning then its a definite possibility. Also check the CV joint boots for splits as this can quickly wear them out. The dust mixes with the grease to form a grinding paste.

Turning left makes a knocking noise


HI. The first thing i recommend is to check the power steering fluid. If its at a proper level, this may be a more serious issue with the steering rack(assembly). A common issue that will cause the knocking during the turn sequence can be the CV boot and joint assembly. the CV boot merely holds the grease around the CV joint itself. The knocking sound is probably from the CV joint. If the boot fails, the joint runs dry and shortly after that, the joint fails. Preventive maintenance would be to inspect the boots and replace if damaged before the joints are damaged.

Please rate and god bless.

2002 Mazda Protege 5: I am having a knocking sound coming from my front right of the car.The noise is most noticable when turn right with speed. The noise is also there when driving straight but not all...


I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.
