Have the cv boot replaced or replace it yourself. This will save you from having the replace the entire axle in the near future.

My volvo s60 03 isnt making any noise when I turn right or left, and there is no visible problem other than the boot being torn and grease being all over the place. Is it possible my boot is just torn and...


Yes, that's possible, especially if the joint hasn't had enough time for dirt to get inside the joint. If you remove the half shaft, you can put a new boot and clamps on it, with new grease supplied with the boot. Only thing is, the joint has to be partially disassembled, it is very messy, and takes a couple of hours. An alternative is to buy a remanufactured half shaft with both joints (inner and outer CV joints) checked for wear and new boots installed. This half shaft is ready to install-the cost of these remanned shafts is actually less than the price of one new CV joint- about $70 for a chevy half shaft as an idea of prices.

Diagram cv inner outer mazda sting


Inner cv's hardly ever pack up it is the outer ones as it works harder in turns. it will be a clukking noise and some grinding. Make sure they are well greased and the rubber boots are not torn. if it has wear replace it as it can be costly when it fails.

A "CLICKING" NOISE WHEN TURNING USUALLY INDICATES A BAD CV JOINT. LOOK AT SIDE MAKING NOISE AT INNER AND OUTER CV RUBBER BOOTS...IF CRACKED OR TORN....PROBABLY NEED NEW CV JOINT

When makeing a left turn clicking.


this is the sign of a failing outer CV joint in the drive shaft. look under car at driveshaft. the rubber boot around CV joint is probably torn. This allows lube to fling out and water to come in, contaminating the CV joint. Replace the entire drive shaft instead of replacing only the outer CV joint.

Cv joint but the plastic thang that go around it


One would have to remove the half shaft to service the cv joint properly.

My 2003 chevy malibu makes a clicking noise when i turn right or left. What could that be?


A clicking noise heard especially while making a turn is most likely a CV (constant Velocity) drive axle(s) that is worn out, and if the CV boots are torn and dirt has been getting into the drive axle CV joint, then replace the CV drive axle assembly and do not have the drive axle re-built or re-booted, especially when you can purchase a complete new CV axle assembly for under $60.00 and here is a link to check one out.

Growling noise from front of my taurus while driving, it also makes a whining noise when i steer hard left. i had the right front wheel bearing changed but the noise's are still there. also the inner cv...


It sounds like the CV joint, no they are not supposed to be loose, free to move but not loose like you describe, sort the CV then look at the wheel bearing as I imagine all the noises will disguise others

Mercury Sable makes noise when turning left and backing in? It sounds like a grinding noise.


Sounds like a CV (Constant Velocity) joint. I can't completely solve this for you, but you can re-post with the CV problem. The sound - grinding and or popping - should be coming from only one side of the car - but it could be the inner or outer CV joint on that side. Check the rubber boots around the joints - they are located on each end of the drive shaft on the transaxle. If you have a torn boot, that will probably indicate which joint is bad.

CV joints clicking, how long to total failure and any additional damage?


Since the CV -joints are now clicking and clunking it has to be replaced, by just replacing the boots only won't stop it from clicking and clunking.
For front wheel drive vehicles its always better to inspect the CV joint boots more often and as soon as you find it torn thn before the joint is damaged by foreign particals entering it you should change them.

92 Accord front left wheel clicking loud at 50 mph plus


Maybe a CV shaft, look for torn boots on the outer joints. The one with the torn boots is more likely the bad joint.
