    Loud Noise when Turning – CV Joint Repairs in Hamilton

    About CV joints:cv-small

    The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are an important part of the steering system on all front-wheel drive cars. The inner CV joints connect the driveshaft do the transmission, while the outer CV joints connect the driveshaft to the wheels. These joints allow for a correct and constant transfer of torque between the transmission and the wheels.

    Causes of clicking noise when turning:

    A loud clicking noise when turning left or right can usually be attributed to a faulty CV joint. Your car’s CV joints are covered with grease and enclosed in protective boots. If this boot breaks, grease will leak out and the CV joint will become unlubricated. This causes increased wear on the component and eventual failure.

    A worn outer CV joint will produce loud clicking noises when you turn sharply. Usually, this noise will increase with acceleration. A worn inner CV joint can cause loud clunking noises when switching between drive and reverse.


    Causes of other noises while turning:

    • A loud whining noise can often be attributed to a problem with your car’s power steering system.
    • A creaking noise while turning can be caused by damage to suspension components such as the suspension bushings, struts/shocks and ball joints.
    • loud grinding noise while driving is often caused be wheel bearings that are due for replacement.
