The clicking from the front can be two things. 1.Is the cv joint as you are saying if it is front wheel drive witch it is not. 2. The most likely thing that you are hearing is a front wheel bearing. I would have the front wheel bearings checked and replaced if needed.

Is it safe to say that my CV axel is bad?


No, sounds like the transfer case is shot. Your is an all time all wheel drive. It has a clutch pack in the T case. They go bad. They will cause the tire to skip and jump, not the CV axle. Pricey fix and no fun to remove. You can remove the front drive shaft to get rid of the skipping until you can replace it.

What are the symptoms of a bad CV joint on an all wheel drive Volvo


if your cv joint is going bad check the rubber boot located on your front axel if there is a tear in the boot once dirt gets inside the boot depending on how long youve had the noise the cv joint will have to be replaced sometimes the first signs are a clicking noise when turning coming from the cv joint if you catch it early you may get away with just replacing the boot there are two ways of doing this depending on the vehical one is to buy split boot it wraps around the axel and is held together with tiny bolts and nuts the axel doesant have to be removed useing this type you still have to remove the damaged boot and clean the cv joint thoroughly i suggest useing brake parts cleaner be carefull not to get it on any rubber parts or lines then before installing the new boot pack the joint with grease and the boot the other way the old joint must be removed you will have to remove the complete axel assemble the new joint and axel will come as one unit depending on the vehical your balljoint or joints may have to be removed also this method to me is the prefferd way this will assure all is new its more involved but better in the long run

The clicking noise is like a marble hitting each other only on right turn i was told it is the front axle I get both change ,then they say it the drive shaft c/v joint I change that too but the noise is...


I am confused by your question. Please clarify. Did you have all the CV joints changed on all the axles? Because what you describe sounds like the right outer CV joint is bad.
The drive shaft joint only makes noise when shifting-backing and it is more of a clunk-ringing sound.

You really ought to find another mechanic for a 2nd opinion. J

Engine vibration coming down to first gear


Sounds like outer carrier axel bearing problem. Safety hazard exist. It could lockdown and damage your brake components. Investigate soon. Change both CV axels when you replace the bearings. You will be money and time ahead.

Steering wheel violently shakes.


that is usually caused by bad engine mount this condition usually changes the distance of the cv joint and the differential which cause the cv joint to shake. also check your ball joints.

Need to replace front left cv axel


Best approach is to acquire a repair manual for that vehicle. Pep Boys or similar will likely have one..

Knocking sound


my solution to you is ask some one to check out your cvc joints cause once cvc joints go bad it starts to sound like your engines knocking but its the joints that are right next to the tire on the axel get under your car and look right behind the tire if there is a rubber here's a image of what the rubber on the axel should look like if its ripped or torn or even shredded thats your problem
