MODELS CLICKING NOISE WHEN STEERING TO THE RI

1999 Kia Other

Steering problem
1999 Other Kia Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 90000 miles

I have got a Kia Sephia 99" which got 90,000 miles.
A clicking noise appeared when I tried to steer my car to the right on a slow speed and when steering at the high speed the noise was gone. I have checked the right boot for damage but it was okay from the front side and also the left boot was good when I steered left. If my CV joints are weared on the front passenger side why the boot is still good and not damaged. I thought that you can hear this clicking noise only when you had a damaged boot and dirt entered the CV joints.

CV's can still wear over time. Perhaps you have a hole or maybe you didnt inspect them close enough. Or maybe its at the other end of each CV shaft (closest to the engine)

It could also be " Ball Joints" on the steering equiptment.

Ive replaced 2 CV's on one side for torn boots and worn out joints (dirt obiously). Its good to buy new seals when doing this job.
