Clicking Axle Noise Solved - Try this first!!!!!

Recommended Posts

:clap:

 

The click has gone!!! Wahoo!

 

For 20 quid and an hour of my time I thought I would give it a bash before opting for the more expensive option.

 

A massive thank you to Mark, your help is very much appreciated! If your coming to Japfest I'll buy you a beer!

 

Regards,

 

One very happy man :thumbs:

Had the car on the ramps today for a service and thought i might as well have a quick bash at this. 20 minute job. And have to say the click is definitely gone. Hopefully it stays that way, if not its still been worth a try. :thumbs:

I replaced the passenger side as it was clicking like mad, this cured the click. A few months later the drivers side start to click so this time I removed the driveshaft cleaned it up and greased it with CV grease and the clicking stopped. So far neither side has any sign of the clicking returning.

well had little work to do this week so i decided to try this fix for the clicky axle problem which has annoyed me for a while ,i must be honest i was not expecting this to work as i am competent with car mechanics and could not see how it should make any difference ,but as it is so easy i thought it worth a shot ,i did both sides just for good measure even though only the drivers side seemed to have the issue ,the result is 100% no more click click.

Tried forward to reverse slowly ,quickly and snatchy pull off but absolutly no clicks ,just out of excitement or curiosty i doughnuted it in the workshop yard and and still no noise (except the tyres)

no idea if it is permanent fix but am very pleased

Ah....forgot about this thread. I gave this ago last month when i got my subframe of the car to fit bushes and used the exact HD grease as the OP ;) My clicking disappeared and has remained so despite some major hooning. Need to see if it will after a track session but i have a feeling it will and if not i'll just regrease it :lol: ......had almost a tub full left :thumbs:

Thanks Mark for this B)

My car has been clicking away like a trooper. Even though I replaced one of the CV joints that side had started making noises again (both sides were making a racket).

 

My garage checked the droplinks and found they were fine and therefore got to work doing some greasing yesterday. There is now no clicking - not a single noise at all - :yahoo: Im about to go on a two week 2000 mile road trip which will include a few laps of the Nurburgring and the Hockeheimring. I'll update on progress when I get back.

Did you guys tighten the centre locknut by hand and how did you measure the appropriate torque (177 ft-lb) ?Did you use some torque wrench?

I was still click free after 10K miles ... then sold the car. I would like to think its still click free now :D

Given what has been said above should this not be made a sticky. Seems people spending 350 a side including fitting for a new joint is a total waste of money.

Tried it yesterday - 100% cured!!!! As the garage was changing the links and bushings on front antiroll bar I told them to do the trick and grease the splines as per instructions here and... no clicking! This post is brilliant!!! Saved me £££! Excellent post! Thanks.

Just had this done this morning by StormMotorWerks (also looks after my M), and it took them all of 30-40 mins total.

 

The price came to not far off what I was considering to pay for one of the cheapest torque wrenches I could find, and didn't even go up to 177!!!

 

Clicking noise all gone - I'm a happy chappy. :dance:
