I have a clicking noise in the left rear whenever I pull off

Customer Question

I have a clicking noise in the left rear whenever I pull off and can't tell what the noise is. Sound like a dry bearing but I don't hear it while routine driving
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: Sound like it around my left rear wheel area and it has been going on for a while
JA: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?
Customer: 2003 CTS
JA: Are you fixing your CTS yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Looked for grease fitting but found none so I grease through the booth on the wheel with not success. Grease came out.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at this time

Hello I will help,

How sure are you that it is at the left side? These had a recall for the pinion coupling?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Fairly sure because that is where I hear it and especially if I get on it pretty hard
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
well I apologize but I can't call now because it is night here and I'm taking a prep for a colonoscopy tomorrow.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
also the noise is now loud enough that it will be heard over the phone unless I can take the back seat out and put my cell phone back there
