Sounds like the CV joint boot got damaged and let contaminates in. The clicking indicates the part has malfunctioned and must be replaced. Clicking causes friction and friction causes heat. I would advise against driving the van until the repair is made to keep the transmission from failing. AWD transmissions must have all axles in place and working to avoid damage.

I have a 2000 Chevy astro awd. I put a cv axle on the driver side it broke so i replaced it and its clunk clunk why

Hi Brandon:
It may be that it is a bearing, ball joint, or suspension linkage component.
I'd Put ot on jack stands, remove the wheels, and go over the entire system in detail. Odds are that you will find the problem component.
Using Google to access youtube instructions for replacing components can be really helpful.

Can you remove the driver side cv axle from a 2005 Chevy asteo van AWD permenanlry

The CV axle stub (end with the axle nut on it) supports the wheel bearing, removing the axle then driving on it would cause the bearing to wear prematurely. I would not recommend this. The front differential is also sealed by the cv assembly, removing it would cause the diff fluid to leak out . CV shafts for this van run $50-80. I would replace if it is bad, instead.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD clunking noise when starting out in drive . Vibrtaion felt in the break peddle.

Take the vehicle to a tire shop that does front end work and have them checked your CV joints on the front drive axles, one may be worn out.

When turning right or left I hear a loud clunk, which I can feel, as tho the car is overcoming some tension and then releasing. I just replaced both front axles and the clunk remains. Lots of ps fluid...

either the top bearings on the struts or the lower track control arms ,remember that when the front struts are changed the original beariings are put back on

Is it possible to adjust the front wheel

There is no adjustment, The hub assembly is a bolt in assembly with presealed permanent bearings. I looked up the part to verify & it appears it even comes with the sensor when replaced as an assembly.

I recently replaced similar ones on a FWD SUV & didn't even remove the Ball Joint or the Tie rod ends, or the Axle. I removed the axle nut, pressed in the axle enough to make sure it wasn't stuck,(silicone lubricant) removed the brakes & caliper & rotor then removed the bolts holding on the hub assembly & using a slide axle puller, gently & gradually tapped this out. then just reassemble. I spent no more than 2 1/2 hours replacing both front hubs & I'm not that young anymore. No excessive pressure to harm the ball joint, just tapping. I did have to remove the speed sensor from the back side.

good luck
