      Weird noise wen turning left wit steering all the way to the left

      hey guys i picked up a 2001 palio gtx 2 weeks ago but i just noticed that wen i make a tight turn or w.e i have the steering wheel completely to the left a hear a weird noise coming from the wheels. I guess sort of a thumping noise .. duk duk duk ... anyone know what it could be?

      Looks like your right side (or both) cv joint is failing, is the noise coming from both sides or only from the left wheel? If it is, only option to replace the drive shaft for that side, repairs wont last long. Also check the lower arms and strut bushes for wear.

      Cv's are not availabe separately, only option to change the whole drive shaft, considering 3.5K for a zen, i guess yours might cost much more than that.

      If the noise just started, it might easily last 5-10K but noise will increase a lot for sure. There are glass repair kits like:

      Not sure if available here.

      Yes thats it, if you look closely you could see a tiny dot on the repaired part but not that noticable.

      Are you looking for used part or new?
