Hi new here, and having this problem. Hope someone can help.

I've replaced the cv axle, but when I'm going over bumps there is a good amount of knocking. Wasn't like this before I replaced it. I checked everything and I just can't recreate this knock when car is on jack. Everything feels good. And I think that the axle was all the way in the tranny. It clicked in. It clicked in. I was pulling on it by hand but it wasn't coming out. I ran out of options. Can it be the axle isn't all the way in?? Or the axle nut is not tightened enough? (although I think I put a good amount on force)...
2010 Mazda 3 auto tranny.

Any ideas?

Thanks

You sure its the axle and not something else that didn't get tightened up properly?
You're right arathol. I finally figured it out after setting my small action cam inside behind the wheel. Turns out it was the sway bar link got loose which was sturdy under pressure when the car was on jack. It drove me crazy as I couldn't pinpoint where the noise was coming from...
