    Default Metalic clicking noise when changing gear? Osf

    When I'm changing up a gear and lift the clutch to engage the gearbox I get a metallic click coming from the osf wheel. Checked pads, caliper, top strut, wheel nuts and also changed drop links. Pretty sure it's not a engine mount as the seem to thump. Also def not coming from gearbox side.

    Any ideas? It's fine over bumps etc just when I change gears?

    My guess would be CV joint.

    CV joint usually clicks when turning sharp though doesnt it? It seems to do it as i lift off the clutch quickly but im 99.9% sure the sound comes from the drivers side?

    CV joint clicks when it jerks, sharp corner, or sudden change of speed of the drive shaft (gear change) can cause it.

    Not saying it IS a CV joint, but I'd be checking it

    As above, I'd be checking the driveshafts at both sides for any play. Check your wheel nuts for tightness aswell
