2005 Volvo xc90 t6


Hear a ticking noise coming from the front of the car when I accelerate.
Looked under the car while flat on my back.
Does this car have a u-joint in the front drive shaft or does the complete drive have to be replaced??

Tx.

They have a constant velocity joint. Can be rebuilt but usually cheaper just to replace if you use an aftermarket shaft.

A rock stuck in-between the tire treads? THAT will do hell of ticking noise at acceleration....

I believe the cv joint(boot) is just behind the wheel bearing..I'm referring to the transaxle(drive shaft).

I looked under the car and it appears that there is no u joint like I've seen in other vehicles with their transaxles or driveshafts however we want to call them.
So this is why my first question (post).
Tx.

They are inside the black boots bathed in grease. Normally do not go bad unless boot tears and grease leaks out.

You mean "until the boot tears and grease leaks out."

Ok so you guys are talking about the front axle.

I'm talking about the front and rear drive shafts from transmission or transfer case. They appears to be no yoke and universal joints.

CV joint is a more complex joint and allows for a smoother articulation as compared to a U-Joint.

This is what it looks like on the outboard side:

Failure looks like this (usually do to grease loss but they can fail on their own):



More commonly on trucks and older vehicles (U-joint):

Thanks for the pictures.

I believe it's not a cv joint issue.
I feel that is a drive shaft/trans axle issue.

CV joints are part of the driveline.

Quick inspection on a lift should tell you whats doing.
