View Full Version : weird noise wen i turn

its coming from my driver side front wheel. when i turn the wheel to the left and go (like just letting off the clutch and start moving) i get a creaky crunchy almost noise from that wheel. i know my axle boot has a rip in it. could that be it? cause it kinda sounds liek something needs to be oiled.

Most likely your CV joint needs replace. If the boot is ripped them moisture and dirt has gotten in there and worn the CV joint. Not sure if its cheaper to replace the axle as a whole or just replace the joint in question. On my older VW its cheaper to replace the axle as a whole.

its usually cheaper to replace just the joint, but it is also a little more work.

the biggest difference is that you will tyupically have a core charge if you buy an entire axle, but not w/ just the joint.

shoot me a pm if you want some prices.
