Have an alignment shop look over you car and give you an estimate for repairs. Sounds like you are correct about the bad CV joint and it could fail causing an accident. Be safe!

Noise when turning left


well it could be the brake pads rattling when turning have the brakes checked. it could also be a bad cv joint gone bad causing the noise only on a turn. if its when turning left then the left cv joint has gone bad. replace the left half shaft. some people say a rattle noise when its a clicking noise.

When you turn to the right there is a noise coming from the left front wheel


Have the CV joints replaced by your vehicle maintenance center. With CV joints the noise nearly allways comes from the opposite side that the one that you are turning to. Turn right, noise, Left side CV joint to be replaced.
Don't replace only the one side but have both replaced

When turning left or right, there is a "popping"


Check the CV joints on that side. Check to see if you have any leaks at the CVboot. Sounds like you have a bad CV joint.

Makes noise when i turn left and right


depending on what type of noise, wors't case it could be bad cv joints. Try turning the wheel all the way left and step on the gas to see if the noise is there, then try right turn.

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.




Does sound come from POWER STEERING PUMP area?

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.
