I have a 2000 Mazda with the warranty up in about two weeks. Should I bring the car in to have the CV joint inspected? I hear some clicks everytime I park the car or parallel park. If you were me, would you take the car back to Mazda and tell them to fix it??

Thanks for reading.

oh come on...are you freaking brain dead...read what you just wrote and then ask yourself if you should go in. yes, you should bring it in before your warranty is up...you already knew this answer when you posted it...

Why not? Take it to the dealer to see what is up.

It could be that your car is cooling down?

Uh....engine cooling off?

Quite normal.

:confused:


As for the clicking when parking, maybe tie rod ends? Something in steering?

Na I think you should just let it go until it stops running and then post another YACT and whine and biatch about how you tried to bring it in to the dealer after your warranty was up and biatch because they wouldnt repair it and then you
can let everybody know how big of azzhole the dealer is and how they are screwing you around. :D

Buy a RWD car next time so you don't have to mess with CV crap.

and instead have to mess with u-joints and a rear axle.

It's worth it! RWD are much easier to work on. However, no more crap on this thread. Take it to the dealership if you have two weeks left.

Take a peek underneath to see if the cv boots are torn. Or just take it in to the dealer and have them check it out. If you're hearing clicking while the engine's running and you're turning hard at low speed, my first thought is the cv joints.

I am pretty sure it is the CV joints clicking. Look out Mazda dealer, here I come...

That sounds like the "click of death." Your engine hard disk is probably going bad. Back up your mileage data right away and get the manufacturer to replace it while you're still covered by the warranty.
