SOURCE: knocking noise

Check your tie rods and the drag link bar which controls the steering. Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while you are underneath and you should be able to pinpoint the noise location.   I had the same problem on my 2001.  Replaced the lower tie-rod ends and also the ones on both sides of the drag link. This solved the problem.  Whether you do this job yourself or not, you will definately also need an alignment upon completion.

SOURCE: CV joint replacement

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.

SOURCE: cv joint replacement

Regardless of if it is a driveshaft or axle joint, the difficulty lies in your skill level. Personally, I know it would take me at least an hour, but I have the tools and knowledge to do this.
I can't give you a step by step, but even an inexpensive manual like Haynes has this stuff in it. If you have a problem understanding their instructions, I will be happy to answer specific questions you may have.

Does changing only one cv joint on an 2000 mpv cause a problem?


You can change one, it would have nothing to do with ride height

Cv joint and boots


Hi Wendy Ann,
Hard to give an exact diagnosis when I can not hear the noise myself. Generally, a bad CV joint will make a clicking sound when you turn a corner. From what you describe, it sounds like you've been ignoring the problem for some time. Due to the mileage on your car, I would recommend that you change both front half axle assemblies. [There are two CV joints/boots on each half axle] This is a common problem on front wheel drive cars.

My 2000 XLT Explorer makes a 'knocking' noise somewhere in the front end which speeds up as I accelerate. It is loudest at about 50-60km/h and gets quieter from there up... I changed both wheel...


Hello, This could easily be the CV joints. You were in the vacinity of your problem when you changed the hubs. Although the front differential should be checked for gearlube level, the trans fluid is not going into your differential.

You can siphon out the excess trans fluid. The differential is in a floating mode without being engaged, but the CV joints can easily make noise while not being engaged.

I have had a number of clients with 4x4's swear they had problems with the front end. But many have written back to me and let me know thier problem was the front driveshaft U-joint. This is especially true for noises seeming to come from the passengers front side. As the front U-joint is dead center on the vehicle, it is to the right of the Driver so the driver thinks the noise is coming from the far right side.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Grinding sound when turning


if its a grinding/knocking type sound then it could be the cv joint gone bad.the side that makes the noise when you are loading during turning(turning left you are loading the right cv joint and vise versa)that is the side the bad joint is on.it will happen whether or not your foot is on the brake.if the noise happens as strickly a grinding noise like when brakes are metal to metal when applying the brakes then it could be brakes need replacing.also have seen were if the inner fender is loose or oversize tire is on it can rub sounding like grinding.

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.

I had my cv joints changed out and now my knocking sound is worse


Is the knocking only on turns from the front and it is a fast continual knocking?
If the installation was correct.......sounds like the CV joints are possibly defective.
When changing CV joints.......always put in complete shaft assemblies that use NEW joints....not rebuilt joints.The price is almost the same.

When the van is driven my front end is making a knocking noise my front driver side wheel shakes and the steering wheel shakes


Front wheel drive cars have CV joints in the axles to permit the wheel to turn for steering. The CV joint is basically a universal joint on steroids. When they ware out it can cause this type of condition.
