CLICKING NOISE

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 115,000 miles

My husband changed the wheel hub on the passenger side & now it makes a clicking noise. What could that noise be because it was not doing it before (or I could not hear it over the loud roar of the hub)

Could be a loose axle nut he is going to have to go back over all the work he has done and find what he did to cause the noise. Let ma know what he find's.

He went back over all of it twice.

If it wasn't doing that before then it would have to be something that was done when replacing the hub assembly. Unless it was doing that before he replaced and you couldn't hear it. So does it click while turning going straight etc?So he torqued the axle nut?Also he is sure it's tight enough?Also all the other nut's and bolt's are tight?The rotor dust shield isn't hitting?

It clicks when you drive straight or turn. It starts around 10-15 mph.

He is going to have to check everything I would put the front of the car on jack stand's so the front wheel's are off the ground. Then spin the front wheels to see if I could hear the clicking so I could track it down that way.
