My S40 is making a rattling/ticking/ clicking sound. It started initially only at speeds higher than 70mph. That number has slowly moved its way down into the low 60s. Maybe something is lose?


Asked by Oct 23, 2013 at 08:16 PM about the 2010 Volvo S40 2.4i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sounds like its coming from the driver
side and away from the front bumper.
Maybe in the transmission area?

I suspect it's a fault CV joint. The rubber boots commonly tear and let dirt in and grease out slowly deteriorating them.


That makes sense. I believe I had the CV joint(s?) Serviced in some way when my car was hit back in June. I've been getting this annoying squeaking sound from the front driver side table pretty much ever sense I got my car back. I've put it off taking it in. I know I know, give my car some attention. It sounds like the problems may just be related
