A clicking noise can be an indication of a few different issues on your vehicle. One of the most common issues is a worn CV Axle Shaft. The CV axle joint has boots that contain grease. The grease helps lubricate the joint while the axle moves. When the boot starts to crack, it will leak grease, and when the grease is gone, the axle will make noise. Sometimes a worn cv axle will cause a vibration that increases with speed.
Other times, a cv axle will cause a knocking noise that can be more pronounced in reverse. Our technicians inspect the cv axle boots for grease on our regular vehicle maintenance inspection. If the cv axle boot is leaking, the cv joint will need to be replaced soon. Call us today to schedule an appointment to have your vehicle inspected!
