creeking/clicking sound when turning
 
When ever i turn left i hear this creeking or clicking like sound coming from my front right wheel (passenger side). does anybody know what this is? some problem needing to be fixed i assume?

i'm thinking its your CV axle or wheel hub

CivicTypeRice 03-30-2009 07:28 PM

CV joint most likely

kookoobird88 03-30-2009 09:24 PM

hmm ok thanks

is this something i should get checked out immediately? or if i keep driving with this could something very serios go wrong?

Depends on your definition of "keep driving with this could something very serious go wrong". If you drive long enough the axle will break and will render your car immobile. Although that's only in the most severe of cases and not likely to happen unless you drive it over extremely dusty and dry environments.

You're good to go for a few months, I would say.

by something serious i mean like, while im driving could i be fucked suddenly, but i guess i answer that so yea hah

Perhaps, but don't try to push your luck and drive around with it for months. No, chances are it wont go right away, but as with everything else that goes wrong on a car, the sooner it's fixed, the better (not to mention safer) it is for you.

An axle is ~$90 if you buy it from a shop like Lordco or Wakefield and no more than two hours if you do it by yourself. If you bring it to a shop, you're likely looking at a couple hundred dollars for them to do it.

Wakefield Sperling. It's an automotive shop like Lordco, but with much better customer service and typically better pricing.
