Bad CV Joint Symptoms?

Answer

A CV joint is located on the wheel axle of the vehicle. If you look near the wheel you will see a rubber casing. This casing holds in the grease that lubricates the CV joint. Overtime, rubber does split. When this splits open, the grease will leak out and dirt will get in. When the joint dries up you get a clicking noise from the metal parts hitting together. You will hear this clicking minimally at first when you make a turn. Overtime, the clicking will get worse and more consistent. You may also experience a clunk when you change gears. You do not want to let this continue. Doing so will cause further damage to the vehicle and require more costly repairs.
