Strange noise when I turn

Hi guys,

I have a 92 civic hatch. I find that everytime I make a turn I can hear a strange clattering sound from the front of the car. Now the strange thing is that if i let the car roll on turns it doesn't make the sound but if i am exelerating on this turn it does make the sound.

Does anyone know what this could be??


any help would be great..

thanks

yes, if all the grease has come out of the cv joint, and dirt has got into it...
is there grease all over the suspension or wheel on that side?
i would get a new axle instead of rebuilding it, aadco has good prices for rebuilt axles...

this is probably not your case but.. receently my heatshield has been rattling like crazy. so the other day while at tmmies me n some buddies ripped off the bottom half but couldnt get to the top half. Now whenever i make turns (right of left) i can hear clattering..most likely because the top half is gettin looser. Check it out because its alot less expensive to fix the cv joints n stuff like that. its worth a look!

only thing is that it makes the noise only on accelerated turns... if i turn without excelerating it doesn't make the noise..

i don't know what this means but i would assume if it was the heat sheild that it would make the noise no matter what

if you have your own mechanic like i do, just go take it to him have him check it out.

if not i still suggest you take it to someone who knows what they are looking than troubleshooting yourself.

that is ur CV joint, it would cost you around $130 for CV-Joint (ABS) for the part at NAPA then DIY its not that hard to install it 60-120 min...
