    Default Clunk,clunk noise from Left front wheel Vitz 2005

    You know that famous noise I am facing the same on my Vitz 2005 it's coming from the front left wheel and on U turns only. I went to the mechanic and one of them said replace the whole axle(Goddaa). Went for second opinion the second mechanic said to simply change the kit(not quite sure what kit he was talking about) but he said nothing happens to your axle that quick, as such you need to change the whole goddaaa.

    I am not sure what to do? Please suggest members. Also with regards to kit he said there are 3 types kabuli, Chinese, Japanese. Which one to go for if I have to replace kit?

    Outer cv.joints have worn out and need to be replaced,Its better replace it with new one instead of so called kabili,Buy Japanese one if there is no issue of budget.

    Actually if budget is an issue what would be the best option apart from Japanese? Any specific brand that is reliable for a good 8-12 months.

    Also does the outer CV joints as you mentioned include the rubber boots and grease that needs to be applied? Not sure when buying this part from the auto parts shop what is included...kindly elaborate here also. Many thanks bro!

    Yes only left side was changed bro. The boot felt quite alright I mean it came along with the grease black color. I searched the whole Kashmir road auto parts shop for Chinese cv joint of Vitz 2005 during the process many auto parts shops offered me cv joints but they were for older models of Vitz not the 2005 and up models. Finally found Ijaz Autos rawalpindi nd thankfully they had only 2pieces left and I got one from them. Till date it's working fine. I did on the first 2 days take extra care as the mechanic advised me not to make sharp I turns etc but after the period of 2 days now I am turning my car like normal and its soundless. I could of got kabuli ones but they were a bit expensive for my pocket.
