Question Weird drive train noise, HELP!!!!!!!

I have a MY00 with about 3000 miles on it. I have a problem, when i make left turns at low speeds, i get a clicking sound out of the right front of the car. It sounds like when you have a rock stuck in the tire. But the car feels fine, i have had no problems with it other than this.
Please help

Quite possibly a wheel bearing. Apparently this is an ongoing problem.

Sounds more like a CV joint. Do you only hear the sound when turning a corner? And alot more turning one direction over the other? If it was a bearing, you'd likely hear it all the time.

Thanks for the help, I guess the next step is to call the sevice department and get it checked out.
One more thing, I have a jc sports intake on the car, is the dealer ship going to give me a hard time because of this. Thanks

I agree that it is a CV joint. You could look at the boot and see if it's still intact. Even if the boot is OK, the CV joint could be bad, but they usually fail when the boot wears out and splits and then the needle bearings get dry and dirty.

As far as your intake, the dealer should leave you alone. Unless a warranty problem can be directly attributed to the mod they are not allowed to deny warranty work.
