It could be a cv joint. If it gets louder when you turn, it would be the one on the side that makes the most noise. I would go ahead and repair both sides at the same time. It won't be long before the other one would need repair anyway.

Clicking noise when car is in motion


Does sound like your CV joint. When you turn and you hear clicking noises coming from the front end your CV joint will need replacing.

That usually is a worn CV joint. Go to a smooth surface like a parking lot, wind the windows down, and turn slow circles on full lock. If you hear that noise, it is probably the CV joints and not ball joint noise, since you are not going over bumps.
Also look at the CV rubber boots (2 each side) to find any splits in them. Those let grease out and dirt in, and rapidly end the life of a CV joint.

The individual joints can be replaced, but it isn't worth it. If worn out, get a complete re-manufactured front axle each side.

Making a clickin nosie


The clicking you hear is likely caused by the front drive axles having a worn out CV (constant velocity) joint or it has lost its grease due to a torn rubber dust seal boot, this will be the outside CV joint, there are 4 CV axle joints total, 2 on each side. Any front end or tire shop will look at this for free in most cases.

Does the 1988 Nissan Stanza have U-joints? The reason I ask is because when the car shifts it jolts. And when you put it in gear it jolts and vibrates. I looked under the car and I dont see a driveline. Is...


Hi, yes you have front wheel drive. The drive shafts are on each side going from the transaxle to the wheels. each axle has 2 constant velocity (CV) joints. This is a bit different than a U-joint but serves the same purpose. There are 2 indications of a worn out CV joint. Id the boot is torn, the CV will wear out due to dirt getting in. If you hear a popping noise when making a sharp turn, that is a worn our CV joint. If your boots are intact and there is no popping on turns, the odds are the problem is not with the joints but somewhere else in the drive train. Raise the car and turn the wheels by hand to see where the play is coming from. let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Clicking noise under the Toyota 1998 Rav4

Left turns sometimes makes knockin noise seems left front, i see that the outside of that tire is worn too. I had front brakes/rotors replaced and seems since then it was happenin but not always


Could also be the upper ball joint, put a jack under the lower control arm and jack the left wheel off the ground, the trick is to try to get it at normal ride hight, grab the tire at the top and bottom and try to push and pull the top in and out inline with the ball joint. have a helper eye the ball joint and see if there is any motion(play) at the joint. If not, check the bottom the same way. if they are both good, try it side to side to check the tie rods for play, make sure the steering wheel is locked. if all checks good than it is probably the cv joint if the truck is four wheel drive, if it is not four wheel drive it's definately is not a cv joint because you don't have them. For the four wheel drive model, go to a large parking lot, put the truck in a tight left turn, this will stress the cv joint, making it click, you will hear the noise from the side with the bad joint. Then tru a hard right turn, then do the same things again, this time driving in reverse. That should allow you to isolate the noise, Please rate this four thumbs up if it helped, i appreciate your feedback. Thanks, Bob
