Hi Kenny I'm Tom.

It sound like a front CV axle to me. Is your car front or AWD? If you can see under the car at all try to look behind the front tires for the axle. There are 2 rubber boots on it. The image below is what it looks like. What happens is the boots rip and all the grease blows out of it normally then they start to grind. So look for grease on the control arm and if you get get a hold of it try to see if it has play.

Here is a guide to help walk you through the repair with instructions in the diagrams below to show you how to change out the CV axle on your car.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is. Let me know. Tom

Hey Tom, you are absolutely correct it was the right CV joint. But I'm going to change them both. Thank you very much. Kenny

Hi Kenny,

Glad we could help. It's not a bad idea to do both but if your boots aren't ripped the joint inside should be fine. It's when the boots rip that the issues arise. The grease spins out and dirt gets in then that the beginning of the troubles.

2CarPros is here to help, be sure to tell a friend and post us on your social network.
Let us know if you need anything else.

Hey Tom my friend thank you very much. I will share your information with my friends and family as always. And you will be hearing from me again because I have three vehicles older vehicles are 2006 motorcycle Honda VTX C, 2003 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 l, 2006 Equinox because that's all I can afford older cars. But they're also easier to work on. My wife has a brand new car God bless her, but isn't that the way it always is. LOL have a good night talk to you later. Kenny
