My car makes a clicking noise when I am turning the wheel. Is this my axel? And if so does that cost a lot to fix or can my neighborhood repair man be able to help?

It is your cv axle on your front end. And yes. He should be able to fix it. If not, then he needs a new job. haha. But, it should not cost you anymore than about 60 dollars for the part, and about 60-100 for his work, OR whatevr his rate is. But, i wouldnt pay no more than a 100 for the work. Hope this helps, James Booth :) PLEASE RATE THIS!!!

This type of noise is cause by the front axles (right or left or both) outer CV joint either having a torn grease boot and running without lubrication or being worn out or both. If this has gone on for more than a few weeks the CV joint is ruined.

2004 ford freestar - when i back up and the wheels are turned (but not cranked) i hear a clicking noise. no noise when i'm turning in drive - only reverse

check the brakes and the cv axles. My thinking is cv axles if the vehicle has around
100 thousand miles on it. Hope this is helpful.

Transfer case still sending power to front wheels on 2000 excursion. HELP! I hear the "clunk" when its put into four high and low and when its disengaged, hubs will not turn at all, I try to turn...

It sounds like a problem with the drive shaft knuckle its a sealer unit and not serviceable See if when you turn the axle back and forth you hear or feel clunking noise or feel movement in the sealed joint Iwould check the conduition of wheel bearings this kind of a problem tends to create a lot of heat so a over hall of bolth front wheels mabey brakes and bearings is likely along with any axle problems you find It sounds like you waited to long to address this things like don't braek over night they give waring signs make noises viberate you need to look and listen. repairs tend to be much cheaper and easyer if you do. It still sounds like you can save it but you need to do everything that it needs good luck and sorry its not easy fix but it needs work

When I turn corners in my 03 aviator it makes a loud clicking noise rather I turn left or right. What can it be?

axle CV joints. Check 4 boots for tears. Also grab shafts and tug--check for play in joints. Replace axles that have play in CV joints. Let us know if you need instructions.

Making clicking noice when i make turns

Clicking noise is likely a c/v joint, to repair you replace the axel shaft. To Isolate the concern see if it happens more when turning right or left, the dominate noise is the failed side

The front driver side tire area makes loud clinking and clunking noises when turning sharply and backing up

Sounds like the CV joint is bad. Take a look under the wheel and see if the rubber boot is torn and grease is coming out. Need to take to a repair shop.
