I have a 2005 Subaru Legacy gt with manual transmission with 78,000 miles. When I make a left hand turn at around 15mph in only 1ST gear it will click numerous times. So I thought I had a bad front left axle so I went to a parking lot went in some left and right circles and it did not click or make any noise. Dead silent. The clicking is only there when in 1st gear turn left and going around 15mph!If I start in 2nd gear it is quiet and if I turn slower than 15mph in 1st gear there's no clicking. I washed the under body, went to many shops that say the axle is fine no cuts, not torn, no grease or anything. Could it be in the transmission? Please help!
Also another question is there is a scraping/rubbing sound when driving from the rear right side. I had my wheel bearings replaced so that should be fine. It sound like how a rotor would sound when you spin it when doing brake jobs. There is also a pretty deep scratch on the inside pad where it may have scraped the rusted parts of the middle rotor. There is a lot of pads left. Rotor is still clean and caliper and piston still work its not hot after driving. I cleaned the pads so there shouldn't be dirt on it. It doesn't sound louder when braking or anything, same amount of noise like a scraping/rubbing sound. I had mechanic drive it and they always say I didn't here anything did you? I know there is a scraping/rubbing sound but don't know if its wrong pads, bad rotors or what. I pressure washed the whole under body. So what can it be? Why is there a deep scratch on the inside pad and not on the other left inside pad? Could it be just wrong pads? I just want to buy the right thing and not buy anything I don't have too! Please answer both of my questions not just one.
