I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada and when I drive there is a clicking sound coming from the front driver side Tire. The noise does not continue when I turn


Cv axle has a worn spot in it. Bearings can do this also. But the click will go away turning one way, and get louder turning the other way. To check the CV axle is has to come out. Grab the center shaft and twist and rotate the outer ends. If they are not smooth when doing this(feel a bump). It is 100% the axle.

My front axle is rubbing and tearing my boot why


Do you mean the tie rod end? Did you recently change your tires and/or wheels? Wheels can have different offsets, so choose carefully if you change them. I had problems with my track bar on mine. It was wrecked before though. Has yours suffered front end damage that you know of? Have someone watch underneath while to turn your wheels back and forth slowly. They should look for anything shifting or separating.

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.

On left turns there's a clicking or rubbing sound coming from left front wheel?


Without seeing and hearing the noise in person I can only speculate as to the actual cause of the problem. The issue is more than likely caused by one of the two following failures: 1. A failed CV axle boot on the drivers side nearest the wheel. 2. (less likely) A failing drivers side hub bearing. To me, however, your complaint describes to a "T" a bad CV axle. CV stands for constant velocity. This type of drive axle was designed for front wheel drive applications in order to allow the axles driving the front wheels to not only adapt to uneven road surfaces but also pivot with the steering knuckles to steer the vehicle while maintaining rotational speed. To achieve this CV axles use special joints at either end called trunions. These joints are lubricated with a thick grease which is contained by rubber boots. In your case the boot closest to the driver's front wheel has torn open allowing the grease to be thrown from the joint during driving. This joint, now unlubricated, has dried out and collected debris from the road. Making otherwise silent operation a disturbing load affair, especially when it is put under maximum stress ie a left hand turn.

Loud knocking sound from front drive axle side


I really doubt that its the spider gears that are bad. Most likely that its the axle shaft- not as bad as it sounds- I sell lots of them.

Front drivers side axle removal


There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil

1991 Oldsmobile 88 Royale loud clunk when turning??


Ball joint, tie rod end or upper strut bearing. CV joints? Pulling to the left may be an alignment problem with front or rear tires. Get a four wheel alignment.
