Clicking noise when turning

Hi,

Just wondering if someone had any similar experience, with their car. My '03 X5 making a clicking noise when i turn. its coming from left driver side. I have replaced left boot and cv joints but still have the clanking noise. and someone told me it might be the shaft.

Does this sound right? also do you think its a DIY or should i just take it to a mechanic. wonder how much it would cost to replace half shaft.

Any replies appreciated. thanks

Take it to a mechanic and have them look at it. Tell them what you replaced and let them diagnos the.problem. Try to find a place that does not charge a diagnos fee.

I think the tie rods of your car will be malfunctioning.

Try jacking the front of the car up and see if the noise is still present when you turn the steering wheel but not the wheels.

Maybe its the wheel align and its rubbing on the left side or the steering column is over extending itself. bring it to the dealership also check recall sites the one I use is Recalls.gov

Hi. Check you dont have a foriegn body stuck in the tyre tread, may sound dumb but I've seen it happen and the noise generated can be quite loud. Cheers Jock
