I have a 1994 Honda Prelude, when i move the steering wheel a sort of wrenching noise comes from the wheels, somewhere beneath the car. I suspect the cv joints, and if so i would i go about fixing it myself?

Hi,
The Constant Velocity (CV) joint would be the more likely cause of the symptoms you are describing.
The CV boots are replaceable seperatly, but if the joints are making noise then they are shot and need to be replaced. At this point it may be more cost effective to replace the old axle with a rebuilt axle. That will come with two new cv joints and boots. These axles are readily available at any auto parts store.

If you want to fix it click the following link this will help you.

What can be possible problem be? at 10-15 mph very slight vibration in steering wheel and dosn't seem to roll right


Blister or broken steel braid in tire. Lug nut torqued properly? If you suspect tire, move it to the back and see if the noise/vibration migrates with it. The only other guess would be your wheel bearing is failing.

1997 Honda accord difficult to turn the wheel


if the noise happens when the car is moving then you're hitting theh wheel stop that prevent the wheel from rotating around. typically the wheel stop looks like the back of a cupped hand and its located on the lower control arm that comes off the strut. smear some grease on it and that will probably eliminate the noise.

on some cars the noise is from the strut bearing on top. the strut bearing is located on the top of the strut tower. You can hear that noise if you stand on the side of the car with the hood open and then have someone turn the wheel until the noise comes in. the car doesn't need to be moving to hear a bad strut bearing.

lastly, check the belt tension for the power steering belt as the belt may be slipping under the load of a full turn

Squeak from front left wheel...


It could probabely be the brake pads ,some cars have worning light come on and others have this little projection of steel piece working as warning tht the pads needs replacement.
Remove the front wheel andyou will be able to see the brake calipers and the pads.
Good luck.

Wheel bearing?


If it is a howling noise it is most likely your bearing (kinda sounds like an airplane)

You should also check the tires for broken belts and bulges. As well as that they are properly balanced.

1991 prelude drivetrain problem


Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0
