Re: [T3] Noise Diagnosis


Mine started with a click and eventually turned into a clank.  What
mine was was a loose hub nut, you might want to check.  Didn't hear it
much except when changing gears and going around corners.   Worn CV
joints are another possibility, but I've never had that problem(at
least yet).
