What is the noise on 2009 dodge charger hearing clunking noise when driving and when turning

Check out your CV axle and all steering components. Raise vehical, support it, have friend turn steerling wheel. While the friend is turning the wheel. Watch all moving parts Make sure the rubber boot is sealed. If seal is broken look for water in greese and broken, loose or wobbly pieces. If just water and little dirt. Remove axle, remove rubber boot, wash with parts cleaner, install new rubber boot, repack with fresh high temp bearing grease, seal boot, reinstall axle and now test drive. Now if you find more wrong replace with new.

From what you describing I would bet on CV Axle.

My front of my car vibrates like crazy everytime I accelerate and turn right but when I let off the has it stops

Sounds like maybe a busted motor mount or transmission mount, or a worn out cv drive axle.Look under the front of the car at the drive axles there is 4 rubber boots 2 on each axle inner boot and outer boot.See if one or more of the boots is torn or split.

Knocking noise when cornering

If you can figure out what side it is coming from, it is probably the velocity joint in the half shaft (drive shaft) going to the wheel. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

The rubber cover on the left side axel is tore. I need to replace the joint I think. How do I do this?

You will need to remove the front wheel. Unbolt the caliper and move aside. Remove the rotor. Remove the axle nut. Unbolt the 3 hub/ bearing bolts and remove hub assembly. Pull the axle shaft out through the opening left by the hub bearing. Cut off the old boot and clamps. Hold axle shaft and tap joint and axle stub off of shaft with a hammer. Install new boot on shaft and reverse steps for assembly.

2005 silverado 4x4 making a ticking noise when driving? Doesn't matter in 2 wheel or 4 wheel still does it from starting out until stopping.

The ticking may be caused by a torn or damaged front CV joint boot. Check each side of the axle assembly, right behind the tire for a damaged rubber boot. If the boot is damaged, you should see grease from the axle all over the front components.

Clicking noise on front wheel rubber boot torn can i fix this easy or do u need special tools

There is really no special tools. When you get to pulling the axle shaft out of the transaxle you will need a crowsfoot to get behind the axleshaft.

I have a 1999 isuzu 4wd rodeo 6 cylinder and was wondering if Need to install a new boot kit or if I need to replace the entire front left cv axle shaft. I had a tear in my rubber boot and noted some...

Do not try to get the cv axle out ot the axle housing. It is a major operation. Remove boot and disconnect the inner cv joint and save about five hours of time. The choice is yours ,boot or reman cv axle. You will need to take the reman. axle apart to install it though and some new clamps. Not a simple operation.

Boot cvj

Yes u do if u use a factory boot, but there is a special split boot in the aftermarket that lets you do it with the axle in place, call a large parts store and see if they make them for your application.

Grinding noise when turning a bend

if the grinding happens when you turn the wheel while moving and not while turning the wheel when stationary chances are you have a bad cv axle. you can check it by locating the cv boot on the front axles. (a rubber piece that goes around the outside of the cv axle. move and expand the rubber boot and check for cracks in it generally they go bad when the boot is cracked or torn and dirt and sand gets in the teeth of the cv axle and wear it out.

When i turn left i hear a knocking sound from my steering and i also can feel it when im pressing on the brake

What year and how many miles on the Kia? I suspect your axle boot is torn. This is a rubber boot that goes around the axle to protect it from dirt, water, and crud it would be exposed to when driving. As the car ages, the rubber will crack and split, allowing road debris to enter the axle assembly. When this happens it isn't long before the axle must be replaced. If you can look under the car at the center of the front wheel, check the boot for damage, splits, cracks, etc. You may see a lot of grease in that area, another sign the rubber boot has been torn, and axle grease is leaking out and being spread around. Have it checked soon, as the other side is either about to go, of already is beginning to. I just replaced the axles in my 92 Honda w/ rebuilt axles for only $50 each, but there is a lot of labor involved in changing them, so it isn't a cheap fix. Let me know what you find in your inspection, but it does sound like a bad axle due to a torn boot. coountrycurt0
