BROKEN CV JOINT

1993 Mazda 323

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1993 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 168000 miles

MY 1993 MAZDA 323 MADE A LOUD BANGING AND KNOCKING NOISE WHEN I MADE A LEFT HAND U TURN AND NOW IT FEELS LIKE SOMETHING IS BROKEN IN THE FRONT END OF THE CAR IT MAKES A LOUD BANGING NOISE LIKE SOMETHING BROKE AND THE 2 PIECES ARE HITTING AGAINST EACH OTHER I WAS TOLD COULD POSSIBLY BE THE CV JOINT OR WORSE. HOPING YOU CAN SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT THE PROBLEM MAY BE AND APPROXIMATE COST FOR FIXING. THANK YOU.

Hello, yes it does sound like the cv joint has gone bad, it is a common problem. The axle should cost about 140.00 for a good quality one and about 60.00 to install please let me know how it goes, thanks for using 2carpros. Com
