CV Axle/Tie rod/sway bar link noises

Postby D.e.f85 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 9:15 pm

Hey guys was wondering if anyone has had any issues with their cv axles ? I’ve got 68xxx km on my vrx sportsback and I’m getting some popping/grinding sounds coming from what I’m guessing is a combination of my cv and sway bar links.

Has anybody had an issue with these? Where did you guys get your replacement parts? :?

That sounds like normal backlash in the drivetrain. To check CV joints turn the wheel on full lock and drive in a circle you will get a clicking/rattling noise if the joint is U/S. Do it clockwise and anticlockwise

Wanted to revive this as I have begun to hear strange popping/knocking sound when I go from D to R. It happens usually between 1 & 3 times depending on how far back I’m going. After doing a bit of reading, the results have come up as a bad cv axle. However, after watching some videos, most examples are a constant ticking noise in either D or R which leads me to believe it’s something else. I’m stumped at this point and am hoping to avoid paying close to $200 just to have Mitsubishi tell me what it is. If you’ve experienced this or have any idea what it might be please let me know. Btw it’s a CVT transmission. Thanks in advance

Could be any thing in the drive line , even the tranny itself
Don't take it to the stealership, have a chat to a local mechanic , I'm sure you can find a half decent local mechanic who charges less then half then the stealership to take a gander at it
