Re: Clicking noise from NS front wheel
I missed this thread, but yes, it could well be the early stages of the CV boot allowing water to penetrate and wash some grease away. The fact you have confimed a high amount of rain, would back this up.
It may be repairable, but remember, these CV joints do have a finite lifespan, and that water damage will shorten that service life each time it occurs, and for how long it is left.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
