Broken bearing or drive shaft

Post by mcskou » Tue Jun 23, 2020 10:06 am

Hi guys,

Yesterday, driving on Polish bumpy road, I suddenly get a new terrible noise, the noise only appears when de-acceleration, it sounds like a bearing, and first I thought of the driveshaft, but it might also be the 3-way bearing inside (not sure of the real name for this joint, where drive shafts are connected to engine/gearbox..)
It sounds like a broken bearing (we all know that sound - clink, clonk, clink, rattle) it is only right side.

When braking, noise stops.
When acceleration, no noise.

Anyone experience this:) all info/tips/help appreciated
😉 THANKS!!

CV Joint...Constant Velocity. They are at each end of the drive shaft itself. So you have four

THanks, FIXED - apparently a few loose bolts. after 2 mechanics test drove and aggreed it would be a wheel bearing, they unscrew the wheel, which came off a bit too easy. So tightened back on, and all was good! finally a cheap fix
