Default 2000 Honda Civic makes noise when turning

Hi,

I've moved to Sweden with my car (it was shipped). Since getting here,
I've uncovered a few new ailments. There are many rotaries here and
when I take one at an average speed and the car is involved in a
continuous turn (left), I hear a faint to medium tapping sound. It
ends when I straighten out again. Sometimes I cannot even hear it at
all.. It definately sounds like it's coming from the rear of the car.
At first I thought it was something in the trunk moving around, as
there is an extra tire floating around, but I'm pretty sure it's
something to do with the car itself.

Any ideas? Thanks, Eric

This is classic constant velocity joint noise. Even though it sounds like
it's in the rear, it's the front. Have the bad CV joint replaced.

Usually a tapping or knocking sound when turning is indicative of worn CV
joints on your front axles. Often the wear is due to torn or open CV boots
around those joints. Get down in front of the car and look at the rubber
boots on your axles just inside of your your brake backing plate. If you see
a split between the folds of the boot, or a tear or break in the boot, the
joint has probably failed or worn. You may also see alot of CV grease around
the suspension and wheel from being flung out of the joint through the open
boot. If that's what you seeand you're hearing the joint clicking then all
you can do is replace it. Spend the extra few bucks and get a factory
remanufactured Honda axle. They are superior to most of the aftermaket axles
out there and Honda covers their remanufactured parts with a 3 year
warranty. Good luck.

I had the same symptoms a couple of months ago. The CV joints were
suspected, but it turned out that it was the power steering rack. Honda
replaced it free free (under warranty).

I agree with Howard; the clicking sound is a worn/torn boot, with joint
gone.
