Yup. Easy to change for new axles or you can take the hard/cheap way out and just replace the joints but I don't advise that unless you have a 20 ton press and anger management classes.

I have a growling sound coming out of the driver's front tire. The sound frequency increases as the tire speed increases, but changes tone when the tire is turned slightly, and disappears altogether when...


I would put money on a bad wheel bearing, but could not rule out the CV joint on the half shaft. With weight off the tire, generally a loose wheel bearing reveals by rocking the tire. Take it to a shop.

Hear and feel a clunking noise when the car is turned right at very low speeds or just starting out.


Make sure your tire pressure on the front tires is equal, the same. If they are not, you will get this clunking sound because one tire, that is proper pressure, is going further than the one that isn't. This will cause excessive wear on the CV joints & wheel bearings if it is going on for a long time. If you still have the problem after setting the tire pressures properly, you may have a wheel bearing or CVjoint problem. Hope this info helps! Good luck!

Grinding noise changes with speed stops when turned right. replaced left front wheel bearing. noise is still there. whats wrong ?


Does sound stop when you turn LEFT?

Turning RIGHT puts the heavy load on the LEFT front wheel.
That initially STOPPED the noise, correct? So why did you change L?

Turning LEFT puts the load on the RIGHT. Did you change the RIGHT?

Let's say this:
If turning RIGHT stops the noise, it's the RIGHT one that's likely bad.
If turning LEFT stops the noise, it's the LEFT one that's more likely bad.

Make sense? Turning RIGHT loads the LEFT wheel; and vice-versa as the WEIGHT SHIFTS AWAY FROM THE TURN.

More than likely it is what some folks call a CV joint problem, not wheel bearings. Try backing up and then going forward to see if "clunking sound" or a sharp "bang" is heard. Wheel bearings and CV joints only work if smooth. Sometimes a BEARING RACE is bad. Also, a bad spindle / part of the CV joint / transaxle assembly worn or badly machined. If in a WET ENVIRONMENT especially, u may want to try marine grade grease or teflon-added grease.

When I turn there is a grating sound, both left and right turns--doesn't happen at low low speeds or on very easy turns. 2003 honda civic


It sounds like the CV joints need some attention. These are covered with rubber boots and if the boots crack they let in water and/or dirt which cause the joints to make a popping or grinding sound. Turn the wheels left or right and look under the car towards the inside of the wheels. The boots are right next to the back of the wheels. Look for cracks in the rubber. If you can, push on the boots and check for small cracks. If they are cracked, have them looked at immediately. The longer they go like that the more damage will be caused. Thanks for using fixya.

ck the CV boot. if its broken you need a new cv axle, if its ok, jack up the car so both wheels are off the ground. either put the car in drive or just manually spin each front wheel while gripping the coil spring for the front strut. if you feel any (roughness) at all, that wheel bearing is bad. it should be smooth. if you have a bad one you will know it by this method. Even good mechanics sometimes replace the wrong bearing, but this 100% works every time.

The front right tire clicks when driving. the speed of the clicking increases as speed of the car increases. what is causing the clicking sound?


possibly a cv joint is going or perhaps a wheel bearing. any other symptoms ? in a parking lot turn the wheel all the way to the right and drive slowly in a circle and listen for a clicking sound... then turn it to the left and repeat. make sure it's an empty parking lot and you don't hit anything.
