Default clicking when turning sharp corner at low speed

Ok I have a nosie that comes and goes seems when making a hard right turn i hear a clicking like a pc of rust or something clicking on the rotor, sometimes i dont hear it when applying the brake what the heck is it ? Again its ONLY when turning sharp its not a wheel bearing or at least if it is I have NEVER heard one do this,no growling,bumping etc at road speed or when turning the wheel the fact that sometimes it goes away puzzles me also that its only when doing a sharp turn ??

That would sound like a CV joint. Easiest fix would be replacing the axle. However let'* get it to consistently do it and good diagnosis.

Go into parking lot and turn your wheels all the way, then slowly drive in a circle. Is the clicking consistent?

ok update, its not a clicking noise its more like a belt squeek chrip/scrape It only does it when turning to the right. i took a buddy of mine in a parking lot and it sounds more like its from the passengers side NO noise at all when left turning. No here is the key, if while making a circle you turn the key off, noise is gone ! So... it must be a motor or belt/pulley noise but why only when turning right ? I know the dealership detailed the motor and sprayed that tire shine crap on it but I have driven the car 300 miles since then it should be worn off but I still don't understand what the right turn has to do with the noise and left turns don't affect it. This is gonna be a puzzler.....

Well a right turn would shift things left. The noise still coming from the right rules out the bearing. I'd check under the hood between the right fender and the engine for anything that might move a little and rub on the belt or something like that.
Thats a very weird problem you have.

tell me about it, nothing including the belt looks like its been rubbing. Going straight down the road all is quiet turning left quiet turn to the right even a mild turn and squeek,squeek at first I thought it was a brake noise but when my buddy turned the key off and it goes away every time that shot that idea. This is a job for "Boosty"

Is the ECC off when you test? I just want to rule it out.

What else turns off? do you have CCR?
Might be something in the power steering/rack.

doesn't seem to matter weather ECC is on or off it does it either way.Doubit its the rack it seems directly related to the belt going around, why only on right turn I have no clue. Doesn't do it when sitting still and turning the wheel back and forth,someone will figure it out,I hope !

It'* not a job for Boost.. Boost isn't an expert by any means.

Anyone know if the rack takes more from the pump during a right turn vs left?

my guy told me that the rack just moves in and out like a ram and the pressure comes from the pump. Again shutting the key off kills the noise. Almost like the belt is hitting something but it doesn't look like it scrubbing. Im still wondering if the belt has tire shine or something on it and maybe its causing the squeek ?? Who is the guru for this problem
