Q: I think I have a problem with the CVJ axle.

asked by on

I think my CVJ axle is making noise, but I am not sure.

A bad or failing CV joint will oftentimes make a clicking, popping or grinding noise, especially when turning. At low speed, a bad CV joint may make a steady knocking sound every couple of seconds or so. A bad CV joint can also cause a vibration that is felt in the steering wheel and floorboard of the vehicle - this may happen only at certain speeds. I would suggest that you have a technician come out such as one from YourMechanic and inspect the noise and the cv boots to see if they are damages.
