A loud sound coming from under carriage during sharp turning

Recommended Posts

Before this servicing i noticed whenever i do turning (i find the bends quite sharp for me) at first lane (after MBS towards AYE) i will heard a loud sound coming from undercarriage. the technician told me could be due to this drive shaft...

 

But after changing the drive shaft, both sides.

 

I still encounter this issue.

 

Any idea what other possible causes?

When servicing the under carriage drive shaft

 

always make sure there is enough lubrication.

 

If there is not enough grease the friction is very bad

 

for the drive shaft and this leads to premature failure.

 

:D

Steering rack could be also the issue. I faced it last time.

I dont think not all car models come as a complete set. From your initial pics looks like your cv boot is torn and likely cv joint is gone which causes sound when you turn. You sure your workshop change the whole drive shaft with new cv joint? To double confirm you might want to look at the cv joint boot and shaft is actually new.

If drive shaft and Cv joint is changed. You might want to check your control arm bushes and sway bar links.

ok. most probably i send my car to the workshop to check again this sat (me driving OPC and not driving often). think better to let them diagnose the root cause of the sound... [crazy]
