Clicking sound when turning

Hi guys,

Lately while turning at low speed I've noticed some clicking sound like " click....click....click" I've looked around and some people say it might be the tie rod or the CV Joints, any idea?

Thanks

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Almost 100% positive it is one or both of your axles, when they go bad they start clicking when you turn. If your axle boots are ripped open that is deff what it is.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Axels? =S I heard that's pretty expensive to get fixed uh? So it has nothing to do with the tie rod or ball joint?

PS: Should I get this fixed as soon as possible or it could go really bad?

Re: Clicking sound when turning

My brother had this problem in his Dodge Stratus. Thought it was a axle shaft or something, turned out just to be an o-ring in the Rack and Pinion. Cost him like 3 bucks since the labor was under warranty.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

get the car on a lift or some stands and see if anything is loose. your axles shouldnt move too much. if they move around a lot they need to be replaced. its not to hard to do yourself, maybe a couple hours of work.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Couple of hours? o.o that's for an average person or? I'm trying to avoid the garage as much as I can but any idea how much that would cost to repair it? Else, I'll try to ask a friend to help me.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Trying to move the tires is for checking bearings. Which is in and out. Up and down is for ball joints, but some you check loaded (weight of car on them) and some you check unloaded (weight off car off the wheels.)

Mostly depends on whether they're upper or lower ball joints. Tie rods I'm pretty sure you grab and try to pull them back and forth. Not 100% sure about the tie rod ends, suspension and steering was my first auto class so I was still adjusting to shiz.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Check the axles and check to see if you CV Boot has a rip in it.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

tHE cLICK OF DEATH.. DEFF A CV AXLE OR ball joint.. i had the same prob on my older 91 civic and i had it fixed and it was the cv axle, and than i gave it to my brother..lol and built my prelude..:-> ,, get it fixed when you can you don't want it going out while driveing, it will only make things worse, and or leave you on the side of the road..... also set the car so the wheels hang off gorund and look at the area where the axle meets the frame and pull back the rubber boot and slowly role the tire forward and back, the axle should move with the wheel as you role the tire if it drags or had play in it when you role the tire it needs replaced.. Not what causes the sound but you should check since you'll be under their anyways..

If you were any kind of a real mechanic, you'd know that:

1. ASE means not a dam thing. It means you're good at taking tests, and has no real bearing on what mechanics do.

2. You can't be sure it's any one thing without examining the car first hand. If I ask my mechanic a question, he'll say what it might be, then say he still can't say for sure without looking at it, because without looking at it, it just as well may be anything.

Sorry to make waves here, but felt you shouldn't go peddling advice and throwing out the "I'm ASE certified so it means I know" line. Because people who are not mechanics think that means something, which was why the ASE was created.

That and because someone who knew nothing about cars wanted to make alot of money by making mechanics pay to get a piece of paper.



Anyway the point is, you may be right, but don't throw down the ASE card.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

And I might as well throw in a few stories in a (prolly vain) effort not to get flamed for my previous post.

1. The instructors at my school tell us we must get ASE certified, and that its very important and a big deal. They also say being ASE certified doesn't mean jack. Reason being, is that customers think you're a competant mechanic if you're ASE certified. Mechanics think it means next to nothing.

2. One of my instructors was telling us about this mechanic he knows...this mechanic is the best automatic transmissions guy he has ever known, a genius with them, and automatic transmissions are not the simplest pieces of machinery. Absolute. Fuking. Genius. And he's not ASE certified. At all. Actually he failed his ASE tests several times, because he knows too much. He gets confused by the questions because his train of thought is... "well it might be that but I've seen ones that were like this..."

3. My buddy is a mechanic that works at a local garage. He can do alignments, engine swaps, trans swaps, you name it. He's failed ASE tests before, and is not ASE certified.

4. There was this story floating around in school, I have yet to verify it. Basically the story goes that there is a lady who is really good at taking tests. Like really good. She can ace tests in subjects she knows nothing about just because shes very, very good at taking tests. Guess where this is going? Yup. She's ASE certified. Annndd prolly can't even change her oil.

And like I said before, my brother had the same issue and it was just a tiny o-ring on the R&P. And you said it's "definitly" a CV axle or ball joint. Which one? Cuz they're not the same thing...

"Oh sh|t, they caught me! Zounds! Backpedal!"

Didn't really seem like a joke, and it just because 2-3 or even 7 people you know had this problem and it was the same thing all the time, it still could be something else, like the example on my brothers car I cited, or you could be thinking about something else than what he's talking about.

As an interesting note...my brother's car again made these same sounds, just it got louder and quieter as he turned one way or the other, and it had more of a grind sound, but still a kinda clicking. Wheel bearing.

To op:
A good test, is to turn the wheel all the way one way and hammer on the throttle, as in with the car moving. Don't do a burn out, but go slow in first then crank the steering wheel to the left and mash on the throttle. Then the same for the right side. If it gets really loud going left or going right, then it's a bad axle on the side you were turning towards. Or the opposite side.... I'll have to check on that for ya.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

If the clicking persists through the entire turn, it's more than likely a CV joint. It's very common with older ludes. I've had to replace both axles on my past 2 ludes. Check the CV boot to see if it has a tear in it.. If it is and its spewing out oil, get it changed ASAP.

Anyway the point is, you may be right, but don't throw down the ASE card.
I agree 100% I am ASE certified and a certified technician from the University of Toyota, and your right, that doesn't mean ****! Ive been wrenching on cars for a living for the past 13 years. And from my experience, when a car starts clicking when turning it is usually most likely the axle meaning the CV joint binding up. The dealer gets 1.5 hr labor per side. I can usually get aftermarket axles for most make and models for about $89.00 each.(oem toyota 08 Camry repacement axle from toyota= $575.00 each/aftermarket=$93.00 each its crazy) Your right it could be about 75 other things that could be wrong too, and can't be for sure without actually looking at the car. But this site is all about people trying to help other people without actually looking at there cars, so this is why I originally posted saying it is most likely the axles and to check to see if the CV boots were ripped. But your right I didn't look at the car or hear the noise so it can be something totally different too. But your right to throw the ASE out there to say you know what it is- that's bull. The things you need to know to pass the ASE tests and the things you need to know to be a good tech working in a shop everyday are TOTALLY different!! You become a good tech by experience and hands on learning, not by studying a book!

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Well thank you for helping to prove my point.

Anyway I do agree that it is most likely the axles/cv joint. Just making a point, prolly not necessary but I am one to split hairs.


Anyway once he checks his cv boots we'll get a better idea of what it could be.

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Fast update guys, I went for a check up this morning and it seem my outer tie rod is due to a change. My wheel was shaking pretty much. So would that fix the issue of the clicking noise, after?

Re: Clicking sound when turning

Possibly. I forget what tie rods can do when broken or worn, but it's a possibility thats your noise. Did you ever check your CV boots?


And I didn't heat up the thread, I was just making a point. That didn't get heated at all ha. I used to start shiz on forums just to create flame wars that got really nasty and went on page after page. Nothing I've started on this forum has even come close lol. Just sayin.
