Replace your front end drive links do both sides chances are the other side will start it sooner or later, best to do this before you lose a wheel while drivine it

You should get your cv (constant velosity) joint checked. The cv joint is encapsulated in the cv boot. If the cv boot has small crack the grease inside the cv boot will come out. If the vehicle is constantly driven in that condition the cv joint will start to make a little noise, but after a while it starts to get louder. It's cheaper to replace the cv boot than to replace the entire cv joint. So get it checked out ASAP! I've had that problem on all my subarus. I had a 1990, 1993, and now a 1998 Subaru Legacy. It is a normal wear and tear on the car. So don't get discouraged. Subarus are great cars.

Is it clicking and popping? I would suspect a CV joint.

I have just replaced my cv joints in the front , and now there is a grinding sound when I am turning a corner?


Did you completely remove the shafts to repair/replace the cv joints. If so then one shaft may be longer than the other and binding up on cornering. Check that the wheel bearings have been properly adjusted . IF you replaced the 1/2 joint on the shaft still in the transmission the it may not have been assembled properly (cage in wrong) and this is causing a problem. Either way I suggest that you seek an accredited service shop to check out the noise before any damage is done.

1997 subaru legacy with awd transmission - driveshaft has been removed due to bad u-joints and trans. locked up the front wheels. What do we need to unlock them?


I have a 93 legacy. Subaru's always run in front wheel drive until a sensor tells the computer the front wheels are not turning the same speed as the rear wheels( spining on ice or sand etc.). At that point all wheels will be driven though a clutch to the rear wheels. This is not good if the car needs to be towed with the front wheels in the air! This "all wheel drive" can be shut down for towing. Under the hood on my 93, there is an in line fuse holder on the pass. side of car behind the front strut mount. Open the top of the holder and it will be empty, put in a fuse (10 or 20 amp or close) , this completes a circuit and shuts down the rear wheels. I don't know if the your 97 has this in the same place, but it must have one some place. hope this can help you.

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while

Cause of noise in front differential of 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback.


there is a plug on the shaft-side of the differential. Using a ratchet remove the plug and with the engine OFF, stick your finger inside the hole and you should get fluid just below the threads of where the plug goes in.

Driveshaft is making noises


i presume that is a front wheel drive vehicle. you likely have a cv joint that is failing (constant velocitiy joint is the full name). if you raise the vehicle and turn the tire back and forth you should be able to tell which one is failing. rear wheel drives would likely need a universal joint replaced. replace both at the same time tho.

AWD not working


Did you know that there is a fuse under hood on Passenger side that I have seen people put the fuse in the missing spot. Problem is it is only for towing the car. Remove if fuse is present and see if it fixes your problem.
