funny front end sound

458 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  AlphaPepper
I've been hearing a dull rattling or clicking sound from the front end (mostly passanger side) for a long time now. I think it's present all the time but I only hear it when I'm driving at very slow speed in my echoing aparment garage, especially when I slow down. It stops when the car does.
I've been to the dealer with the question a few times and they claim they can't even hear it. They say the car is safe to drive, though...
any thoughts?

I have the same problem, and the dealer told me it was normal (Don't they all ;-) ) The service guy said it's just the fuel injectors???

If it only happens when your car is moving then it could be the one of the CV joints. They typically start to make a "clicking" sound when they need replacing. Check out the CV boots. See if either one is torn and/or leaking grease.
