So this is my 2000 V70R that I rebuilt the engine and having been fixing up for my brother.
The car runs great, but a ticking or clicking noise is now coming and going. At first I thought it was a CV. Nope. Then I found a rusted loose brake dust shield (I still haven't figured out what they do). Nope. I thought that maybe when I bolted up the front CV of the driveshaft I failed to lock-tite and it's all loosed. Nope, nice and tight. Walking alongside the car (brother driving rather than ghost riding) I can hear that it's not from up front as I thought. I don't think that it's from the very back (diff area) but closer to the foot area of the second-row seats. I thought I read a long time ago that a failing freewheel unit can cause clicking. That sounds expensive. Reading about it makes me think that I could be a failed CV joint. I don't think that it's the front, so it leaves the back one which is less likely to fail. The car has 167k on it, but this driveshaft looks like it was remanufactured. It looks like it's from Colorado driveshaft. I doubt a rear CV has failed after it was replaced, but I'm not ruling it out. When I get a moment I'll jack it way up and have a look at it. I'll post my findings.
Anything else I should check or ideas of what it may be?
