Mazda Millenia 2000 front end noise



Problem. Mazda Millenia 2000. Front end noise. Started with noise turning right only, especially in long curves on freeway exits.

Now all the time. Increases intensity with speed.


The most likely cause is the outer CV joint. Set the parking brake, shift to neutral and attempt to twist the drive axle. If there is any free play felt it is bad. The wheel bearing is the second most likely cause but until it is very near failure it is difficult to determine.
