    Tapping or clicking on corners only usually suggets CV joints. On older cars
    a clean/regrease solves problem. I,m not sure on latter cars.

    As you suggested, the right CV joint has split. I will give it a good clean,
    re-grease, put the boot back together and tape it up. Hope it will fix it
    till I can afford to replace it.

    I also noticed one of the wheen nuts was missing. 4 instead of 5. On closer
    inspection, the stud has sheared just inside. Where can I get a replacement
    M12 stud to replace the sheared one, after its been drilled out by the

    I will then have to buy a new set of wheel nuts as the current ones are not
    standard, they have a M12 Hex hole in the end, not the regular M17 head.

    Clicking tends to indicate that the joint has been damaged from lack
    of grease. Plan on replacing the axle assembly or outer joint.

    The stud should be available at any auto parts store.
