beatmaniac1 movement at 3 and 9 o'clock = tie rod ? Although vibration wouldn't be related to the clutch engaging/disengaging...

stromberg2 Got the car up, definitely the passenger cv joint.The inner rubber boot is completely gone and there is oil all over oil pan and ac compressor...that maybe explains why I have no ac. I did jerk on the wheel both sides and there was a bit of movement on both. What I was wondering is...Is the wheel supposed to have a little movement when moving at 3 and 9 o clock. Or is absolutely no movement the way it's supposed to be?

stromberg2 Leaning towards the cv joint. Front passenger tire squeaks on takeoff. Like I said, it comes and goes.

StephenElsbree1986 I'm still confused you said you need a wheel bearing and you havnt fix that yet, I'm confused BC since you said it's the wheel it's the bearing...... Jack up your car if the wheel give when you pull out it's the bearing if it isn't is what I said before since you Sid it was clutch pedal related

Continuous Judging by the problems your are saying you're having I'd have to agree that the noice you are hearing is a throw-out bearing on your clutch fork.

stromberg2 No, I'm not sure. Weird thing is it comes and goes. Yesterday, it was horrible, today, not so bad.

nate4027 Sure it's not a cv joint?

stromberg2 Ok, I described the problem a bit wrong. What happens is the car's right front wheel, on acceleration, has a clunking sound, like the tire is low or it's loose on the hub. The sound and feeling go away when I let up on the gas. Hit the gas, and it's clunking again. Like I said before, I know I need new bearings, and I could live with that, but the clunking could be dangerous. HHHEEELLLPPP!!

stromberg2 Thanks guys, I'll check it out. I'm leaning towards a bad bearing, as there is a drone from front passenger side wheel.

StephenElsbree1986 Its in the clutch bro. Engine mounts wont cause viberation when the clutch is engaged or disengaged, So its the ToB unit or possibly the Clutch Fork, if it rattles horribly

Is the vibration only when the car is moving? And does it become even worst when you accelerate?

If it's when you accelerate, could be a few things. New to balance your tires, need an alignment, bad bearing (as you stated) or bad tie-rods.
