View Full Version : Strange Noise

03-30-2005, 11:33 AM
Has anyone experienced a strange clicking noise upon acceleration? (not the RSA tire noise) It sounds like the noise when a kid puts a baseball card in the spokes of his bicycle wheel.

Just thought I'd survey you guys before taking my 1999 GAGT to a mechanic.

Any ideas?

I have a similar noise, I described HERE. ( There is a good chance it is the hub assembly.

Check all of your tires. It may just be a rock, or a nail, or some foreign object stuck in your tire.

Yeah I thought of that too, but there is no way it is a rock or something. It's a constant, low "growl" everytime the tires move... its not fun.

It may be your VSS or your WSS. Both would have an impact based on something with the ABS system. It may actually involve taking it to the shop, because, to replace one of these, its going to cost quite a bit (anywhere from $150-400), mainly because you have to replace the entire system assembly. Good luck.

Usually Clicking Under Acc Is In Your Cv Axle If It Does It Only Under Acc If The Noise Changes As You Go Around A Curve It Could Be A Hub Assembly.
