Your description is indicative of a worn right constant velocity (CV) joint. This problem is usually accompanied by a torn CV joint boot. Your only option is to replace the axle shaft (also called a half shaft). It is recommended that axle shaft seal be replaced at the same time you replace the axle shaft.

99.9% sure its your C-V joints which are constant velocity joints on the drive wheels that allow movement similar to a u-joint, 1 at the hub/wheel and 1 at the transmission/differential side. this gives you a total of 4. It is much easier and cheaper to replace the "half shaft" as a unit which includes 2 new CV joints and boots. Determine which side of the vehicle is making the noise. Realize that the other side may not be far behind in requiring replacement.

Why does my car make a clicking noise when turning right?


Clicking noises when turning the steering wheel inside the car is usually due a couple of things, The automatic return of the signal actuator is done by a little cam on the steering wheel and stalk flips back and the clicking should stop. The other major reason is the plastic parts that surrounds the wheel fittings like the signal stalk. They are not serious. If you are hearing clicks from the engine compartment then you should have your steering mechanisms checked, could be serious.

My vehicle makes noises when i accelerate


98% sure you have an axle problem. Might be wheel bearings depending on the sound. Bad axles will make a loud clicking noise, (click click click in rapid succession, espically while turning or under accleration) while wheel bearings will make a growling sounds.

Clicking noise when turning right on a nissan note


I would check the wheel bearings on the left side first. Just for a dummy check make sure that the cowlings to the wheel wells have not fallen down and rubbing on something. They have plastic tabs that sometimes break and leave something hanging.

possibly both front outer CV joints need replacing on drive shafts
usually clicking when turning right, mainly on take off means right CV outer end of drive shaft is shot.
have wheel bearings been inspected for wear?
jack up wheel
grab top and bottom of wheel and flex(shimmy) back and forth to feel if loose.

Steering wheel jumps along with clanking noise when wheel is turned hard.


jack up the front wheels one at a time, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right or left and turn the wheel by hand. i think you have a bad u-joint behind the front wheel(s). if you have a bad u-joint then the wheels won't turn smoothly.

good luck
