Default Clicking sound when I turn right

Anyone know what is the potential problem with this? Whenever I turn a hard right with my car at any speed (not quite full lock starts at maybe even half) somewhere around the front passenger wheel side of the car it starts making a loud CLICK CLICK CLICK sound until I turn the wheels straight again. Same thing happens to a degree when I turn left as well but it's not nearly as loud or last as long.

TIA!

c.v. joints going bad? might check your boots and see if they're torn. if so, dirt, germs, and nasties have gotten in there and are killing the joint.

What is involved in fixing the CV joint? Parts needed? More important how much am I looking at spending lol.

Bad if I don't repair it ASAP?

Other possibilities could be your wheel bearings or your tire rubbing against your brake line (if you have aftermarket lines). Worn out wheel bearings can make rotational clicking sounding. How many miles do you have on your car? Ever take it to the track and get the brakes hot? Track sessions will speed up wear and tear on wheel bearings.

I've only taken it to the track once. My car is coming on 4 years old with about 50,000 miles on it...

Is it common for wheel bearings to go on our cars? Never had problem with that on any of my previous vehicles.

I have this same problem. Sounds like its coming from the drivers side front. I replaced the drivers side fron axel and it still is making the noise. Should i go ahead and try to change the passenger side? How do you test if a wheel bearing is bad?

Yeah I have the same problem also! It kind of jerks as it does this weird clicking noise. So CV joint or springs? Anyone know how much it'd be to fix?

The cv joint isnt too bad. I just replaced my drivers side axel. It was $79 from advanced auto with a lifetime waranty. The problem is that wasnt the problem. I am going to put mine up on jack stands this afternoon and drive it to figure out where the sound is coming from.


I have done a lot of research on this problem. It seems like a lot of people have it but no one knows exactly how to fix it.

Some of the possible fixes are:

CV Joints
Tie Rod Ends
Ball Joints
Sway Bar Endlinks
Wheel Bearings
Internal Tranny Problem

I am hoping that its not the later of the list.

Will keep you updated

Thanks,

Joe

Turns out my carrier bearing was loose. Caused the drive shaft to move around during initial acceleration. I would suggest everyone check this.

Thanks,

Joe

if you have had your rear drive shaft undone for any reason make sure you check the carrier bearing. That was my problem.

Wow, it's been two years on this thread. Hey everyone, I am having the same clicking sound coming from my passenger front, I posted my own thread on it but not much response so I decided to do further research.

BMW, what's a carrier bearing? How did you come to that conclusion?

I am a little frustrated because me and a friend took a look tonight and couldn't really find what's wrong. We took the wheel off and tried to diagnose where the nosie is coming from but no sound came from turning the steering wheel without the car actually sitting on the front right wheel so obviously it has something to do with weight and stress. We tried to see if anything was loose or any grease was splattered under the wheel well but everything was intact. So, I left his place with dissatisfaction because I can't freaking find where this sound is coming from.

The time that we tried to find this sound with the wheel on, he said that it came from the dust shield that's behind the rotor. He sounded pretty positive about it but I find it hard to believe because it wasn't rubbing on anything when we inspected it.

This happened after I replaced my brake pads and put on new wheels and tires. I did the brake pads without removing the calipers, I have a 06 WRX with 4-pot calipers.

This is driving me nuts.

carrier bearing? today i replaced my leaking passenger side cv axel with a heavy duty cv axel from advanced discount auto. do you think this will be an issue? the heavy duty axel looks visually different, it’s beefier for sure. it cost $140 but i used a coupon and a speedperks discount. the car quest cv axels were $70. thanks drive safe

is the car auto or 5 speed? i do know that after market axles in an auto give it some "shutter" vibration like when sitting a traffic light as the aftermarket are close but not a 100% match to OEM spec
