Question about 1999 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

Clunking noise when turning right

I have a very similiar issue with my 2000 Suburu Outback and I was just told by the dealer that the noise is coming not from my axle but the center differential. My car is too old and has too many miles to fix the problem, they quoted $2800 parts, plus $1200 labor. I have replaced my axle as well and that did not solve the problem so I do believe it's the center differential. Looks like Subaru should look into this if it's not just one or two cars with this issue

if its all wheel drive, you will have CV joints in the front. if the boots on the cv joints are damaged, torn ripped etc, then dust and debris will have entered into the cv joint and wreak all types of havoc on the bearing. To test, go into a parking lot and at slow speed....20km, 10 mi/hr turn sharp to one direction and listen to see if the noise becomes apparent = will be grinding or clunking. this is the result of the bearing wearing a groove in the cv bearing housing and when you turn sharply, the bearings do in and out of this groove, causing you to here a clunking sound. also, it should do this wether it is hot or cold = not temperature dependant

2000 subaru outback/ clunk when i put it in reverse


Turn off engine . get the vehicle on level ground. try to move driveshaft back an forth or,by rocking in twist motion,,, try to hear a knock,,,this would indicate a worn universal joint.either front or back, if you are good enough to discern which one is making the klunk, change both to be on the safe side. think they may be about 20 dol apiece.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
