That definitely sounds like a cv joint issue...the turning part was a dead giveaway. Though it only happens occasionally when turning, you'll see (or in this case hear) it more frequently as they get worse. Best case scenario could be that they need to be greased instead of replaced...best of luck!
Hi there, this sounds like a cv-joint noise what if you drive in a straight line and swerve from left to right gently of course and on a quiet road, if makes a noise then more than likely cv-joint is the noise a clicking sound? your local mechanic should be able to diagnose it for you maybe they might go for a test drive with and listen so you could explain the noise and they could here it..
One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.
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.
is the clicking nosie happening when turning? if thats the case u need a cv axle because the outer joint is bad if ur going straight ahead the inner joint may be bad also check for rocks in the tread of ur tire people some times mistake the sound for that
It is a front-wheel-drive car, right? It sounds like the CV joints are starting to go bad. CV joints connect the driveshafts of the engine to the front axles: they are basically very fancy versions of traditional 'U-joints' found on rear-drive cars. They are protected by a big rubber boot, which eventually gets ripped or whatever, then dirt gets in, which starts to grind away at the joint. It's probably $500 to replace the CV joints, maybe more on a Volvo. The good thing is, the sound will get much, MUCH worse before it actually falls apart and leaves you stranded. So you have some time before you HAVE to get it repaired.
