1998 Nissan Maxima

I have a noise that has developed in the front drivers side(wheel area). When I turn right – it can only be heard at slow speed, when I start from a stop-- there is a " tapping" type noise that appears to come from the wheel area. Is it possible that I am about to have problems from the CV axle? Any other ideas about this noise? Thanks!

Its actually probably that you already have a problem with a CV axle. The noise means it is a problem - if that’s it. There are several other things up there. What you need is to have a good shop take a look to figure out what is making the noise. I’d suggest a locally owned front end/alignment shop.
