Customer Question

The issue I'm having is whenever I'm making a turn I hear a loud noise like a pop crack type. When I drive straight no noise when I turn I hear the noise. I go over bumps and potholes cross the railroad tracks with no issues no noise. It only really happens when I make turns and mainly from the drivers side but every now and then it'll happen on the passenger side too.

Do you hear this noise in when you are turning both directions or just to the right?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Mostly when I turn left but it does sometimes happen when I turn right.

How old is the passenger side cv axle?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

More than 5 years old

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

With the clicking showing up when you are turning left, the right side outer cv joint is the most likely place for the noise to be coming from. I am sure you are getting tired of replacing parts and not correcting this problem. Can you pull the axle out yourself so we can check it?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

I can but it wouldn't be until Sunday cause I work the whole week.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 3 months ago.

Just let me know when you can get to it and we can work from here. Have a good week and chat with you this weekend.
