Clicking sound when turning

My friends car clicks when he makes a turn. He doesn’t feel it in the floor, or in the steering wheel. It just makes this clicking sound when he turns. What can I tell him it could be?

Make, model, year, miles? If it’s front wheel drive it could be a CV axle. However if it has wheel covers, pull them off and see if the clicking stops. The plastic wheel covers on my 98 Windstar made a clicking noise noticeable at low speeds.

This usually means bad CV joints. We asssume this is a front wheel drive car.
