Default *Clunking* Noise When Turning my Steering Weel

I've started noticing a *clunking* noise from the engine (or under the
steering wheel), when I turn the steering while to the right. Can anyone
think of a cause of this? More importantly, will it be covered in my
warranty?

Thanks,
Lee

CV Joints?
Is your car under warranty?

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, my car is still under warranty - it's quite
new ('03 Civic with about 26miles). I don't much about cars, so I'll
look into the CVS joints issue. I assume this is covered under the warranty?

THanks for your help.

I just called the dealership, and he said that if it was the CV Joints
then it would cover under warranty unless it was caused due to something
like road debris. He told me that I could look under the car to see if
it was, but how would I be able to tell? What am I looking for?

He also said that if I was paying out of my own pocket it would be ~
$300. If I get a regular mechanic to have a look at it, would it cost
considerably less?

You are looking for signs of an impact in the vicinity of the boot - scrape
marks, dents, bent things, etc. If it all looks pristine under there, they
will fix it.

Thanks - I'll speak to one of my friends who will probably know what a
boot looks like and see if he can help ;-)

Is there anything else that could have caused it e.g. driving around on
tires with little thread, driving on tires that need to be balanced/aligned?

You mentioned in another post that your car is under warranty. Take it to
the Honda dealer and have them take a look at it. If the mechanic
determines that you damaged it during an accident and as a result won't
repair it under warranty--tell them NOT to fix it. Take it to another
mechanic not employed by Honda and have him take a look at it. If he
determines that you were involved in an accident, pay him or another
mechanic to fix it. If he determines that you did not damage car--take it
back to Honda and show him the report and demand that they repair it under
the warranty.

The boot I am talking about is the a rubber bellows around the end of the
drive shaft just prior to its connection into the back of the wheel.
