This may be a CV constant velocity joint failing, especially if it is worst when turning.
this is the main shaft turning the wheel, with a joint to allow the steering to turn.

Clicking noise goes away when braking


Look at the constant velocity joints on that side. When the rubber boot tears it lets road dirt in which fouls the grease and allows premature wear on the cv joint components.

1998 Contour, clicking noise coming from front wheel on drivers side as I'm driving(it's a consistent click)


With out hearing the noise it is hard to say but it could be a wheel bearing but most of the time a bearing will hum, this could be a bad cv axle or a brake brake hitting the bracket, try to drive the car and hit the brake a little and see if the clicking goes away, if it does then i would say it is in the brakes. if it does not then have the cv axle checked.

I have a problem with the transfer case. What will happen if I do not get this fixed right away ? Also I hear a clucking noise on the rear passenger side , what could this be? ?


this could be a number of things with the clucking noise coming the rear passengers side. could be axle seal has blown, something stuck in the breaks, blown axle. dif on its way out, loose drive shaft. with the transfer case all it does is when engaged puts drive into the front dif, as the rear is already in drive so if your transfer case goes you wont have 4wheel drive it will only be the rear wheels, although in saying that, if your transfer case decides to lock up then you could be in some serious trouble. so i recommend you do get it fixed right away.

2002 2500 silverado - 4-wheel drive makes clicking noise some times, mainly when cornering. Now the nose went away, and no 4 wheel drive anymore. 4-wheel drive light is on, but no 4 wheel drive. Vehicle...


well typically is there is a noise when making a turn its caused by a bad cv-joint but if your having problems with the 4 wheel drive i would look at the linkage to the transfer case and make sure there is not to much play or bent or broke rods and stuff.

I hear a growling noise whenever i get over a certain speed, and when speeding up. It's coming from th right front and i thought maybe the wheel bearing? The noise goes away when turning to the right.??


good chance it is . Grab top of wheels and rock it side to side . If you feel it clicking pretty good you probably need bearings . I would try this on all the wheels . Hope it is a rear bearing if it is front wheel drive

Clicking noise when I turn right on 4 wheel drive. now if I put the truck on 2 wheel drive its automatically goes to 4 wheel drive.


Have your right front Constant Velocity (c.v ) Driveshaft check out. Noise goes away on 2 wheel drive is there is no torq on the shaft like there is on 4 wheel drive. Bad c.v.shaft. Hope this was very helpful.
