The boot just keeps gunk out, if you are not an off-roader then this may still last for years. however bear in mind that at autozone or advance they sell two sizes of new CV joint boot kits which can be put on without removing the shaft from the car. They wrap around and seal with a smelly glue and then you put zipstrips on each end. This requires easy access which you may well have with that type of vehicle.

2005 dodge ram 1500 4x4.There is a grinding noise only in 4 wheel drive only when turning.Rear differencial fluid was just replaced.


This sounds like a bad CV shaft. Check the boots for grease on the outside of them or torn boots the grease may have already washed out and wiped out the joints.

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.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers


popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

Clicking noise when turning right


check your cv axles in the front end. they are basically your drive axles. the popping while turning is usually the outer boots on the axle shafts have torn and the grease inside the boots has ran out causing the shaft to be dry and click or pop when steering. usually you can replace the boot thats torn but it must be done within a few days of it tearing otherwise you will need to replace the axle shafts.

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.

94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?


on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).
