There is a quiet clicking noise when accelerating and turning that seems to come from the left front of the car. It happens when slowing down and when going straight, but seems to happen more when accelerating and when in a turn with a load on the front wheels. It's not really a popping sound more like clicking. When driving at highway speeds it also seems that the steering wheel moves slightly back and forth, almost like drifting. It doesn't appear to be tire related as they are properly balanced, and the drifting doesn't get worse or better the father or slower the car moves. This also seems to come and go with nothing specific causing it, I.E speed, road conditions, etc. I believe the two may be related but am not sure.

Hi Chaos0506,

It sounds like you have a CV axle that is going out on the left side which is a common problem,

Here is a guide and video for the repair, and can get the part on amazon.

The job is similar on your car.

Please let me know how it goes, Best, Ken
