Thumbs Up Knocking noise GTV front end

I have a knocking noise when I accelerate or decelerate, the noise is coming from the O/S/F. Could it be a drive shaft CV joint or wheel bearing. Nothing is obviously loose and I can't see any damage.

Does anyone have any experience of changing CV joints on the GTV 2.0 TS ??

Thanks for your help !

It's unlikely to be a wheelbearing if its making a knocking noise, could be a number of other things though...possibily CV joint, engine mounts etc.

Could be a driveshaft or wishbones or track rod end or suspension strut...err, can't think of anything else atm

Can you replicate th noise at standstill?

Re: Knocking noise GTV front end

Knocking is usually the CV joint. You can confirm this by pulling away with full left or right lock on, the knock will be more prominent. It's a reasonably easy job to do but you would probably be better off getting a reconditioned driveshaft complete, less hassle.

Yep - sounds like the CV joint - mine was starting to dismantle itself, but a new set of bolts & re-packing the joint with grease cured the problem. Messy job, but easy & inexpensive.
