Q: Clacking when turning.

asked by on

Clacking noise when turning left and right.

My car has 115000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is a noise typical for a vehicle with worn cv axle joints. When the wheel is turned, the joint on the cv axle flexes and if the joint is worn or dry from a torn grease boot, you will hear the noise of the joint rotating and the metal on metal contact inside. Worn wheel bearings may also cause this type of noise in some cases. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out for a closer look at the vehicle to offer a more personal diagnosis of your driveline noise.
