Most likely the cv axle or both,they do this when they are worn.

My ram 1500 makes loud clacking noises and it gets worse when the t-case is locked in four wheel drive hoping it's the tcase and not the front end but not sure how can I tell


I suspect that it is "U" joints or cv joints that is the problem
remove drive shafts and lock the t case in 4x4 and see it it makes the noise
refit the rear drive shaft after checking joints and if still no noise connect the front shaft. if the "U" joints checked out then it could be the joints in the drive axles at the pivot point ball
remove a hub drive plates and see if the noise is there
if it isn't then I would consider the joints in the axle shafts to be candidates for repair /replacement
it all has to do with the torque wind up when in 4x4 and any worn or failing joint will clack as it tries to work

There is a clacking sound from the left tyre while moving on a rough surface and on low speeds


OK so it's your CV axle most likely during slow revolutions it clacks and makes noises so replace both sides to ensure transmission/engine performance stays optimal to power applied to the road. The other cause of noises in that area are due to the wheel bearings needing replaced usually and sometimes repacking the bearings instead. On your car if the axle passes through the wheel it has to ride on something to control balance and torque across the drive shaft. I would replace both front driver and passenger side wheel bearings and the CV axles on both sides please be smart people and replace parts like these in pairs/ together the reason being after you replace one side you drive a few months or less and the other side goes out almost always soon after the other I would say over 75% of the time let it be bearings/u-joints/CV axles or other crucial parts. Hope this helps please take my word and fix it right the first time and please buy the better parts not the cheapest parts out there if you want quality/ safety than buy the better or best parts never just the good or OK parts

Hello! I bought a 2002 Audi A6 quattro and recently when i was driving it i heard what seemed like a train/rough/grinding noise coming from the front end. Mostly from the drivers side. Im not sure what the...


Jack up the wheel and see if there is any side ways movement top and bottom. If so it will be wheel bearings. If not turn the wheel and feel for any roughness in the wheel turning. Turn the wheel in and out while spinning the wheel and see if there is anything wrong in noise and feel. If so it most probably be the cv joint. Drive slowly on full lock and listen for a clicking noise as this indicates a failing cv joint as well. You can get aftermarket wheel bearings as the bearing shop will probably have a listing for the bearings in the wheels and they will most likely be about 1/2 ice to genuine items even though they are the same bearing with out the audi name on the box.;

My 1991 cavalier is a 2.2ltr 4 cyl. 3spd auto, front wheel drive. when I drive it I hear from the right (passenger side) front tire a deep loping whirring sound....I am leaning towards the bearing or...


Deep growling sound could well be a bad wheel bearing. A bad cv joint will generally make a click or clacking sound, usually while only turning. While driving, you can often change the pitch of a bad wheel bearing with a slight turn of the steering wheel (note - slightly, no crazy zig-zag). What you're doing is shifting the weight on/off of this bearing and the pitch will change if it's bad. Only way to verify is to remove it and feel it in hand. It's a sealed hub/bearing assembly and only replaceable, not serviceable.

Alot of road noise from front of car, suspect cv or drive train issue , As speed increases noise gets louder. Engine runs smooth, new tires 6mos. ago, alignment good.


MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THIS IS THE WHEEL BEARING, DEFECTIVE CV JOINTS ONLY MAKE NOISE IN TURNS AND THAT IS A CLICKING NOISE,.

Shop can't do an alignment because the driver side wheel moves. Also, now there is a clacking noise when turning the wheel all the way. Guy states it's only the bearing. I think its the CV joint, Can't...


Could be one or the other....if you knkow you hit a bad pothole or something...

One way to check to see which one is bad is by jacking the car, and spin the wheel. If it sounds grinding-like...bad bearings....

Same side jacked, grab the tire and kind of twist side to side...there should be almost no play in it. If so...bad CV joint...if not...bearings are toast.

Grinding noises when 4x4 is engaged


Most likely wheel bearing or cv joint issue. look for a ripped open cv boot. I believe that year used cv joints instead of regular u-joints. Hope I helped. Thanks

A clacking or popping noise on turns means one of the CV joints is bad. A scraping sound means you need to oil the steering wheel support bearing, or maybe something like loose change fell between the steering shaft and collum.
