    My GF's 96 Civic Sedan DX makes a weird clicking noise when it rolls. It is not constant but pretty often. You really can't hear it from the car or when going fast, but when she pulls out of the driveway, I can hear the clicking noise. It sounds like metal clicking. I don't think its the CV joint, because it happens when she is going straight as well. What could this be ?

    Nope, I just replaced the brake pads.

    Will the CV joints click like that even though the wheel is not turning ? How can I check for CV joint problems ?

    Yes the CV joints will click if they are in poor poor condition whether they are turning or not. As far as checking them manually my only thought is jack up the car and have someone run it while you listen.

    well it defenitely clicks. I can tell you that without jacking it up. Is there a way to be sure that it is the CV joints ?

    How much will CV joints run me ? Can i change them out myself ? is it cheaper to have them done in a shop ?

    ya axle should be about 60 bucks or so and 99% of the time the boots are cracked and broken when its clicking like that so look for that
