Grinding noise when turning left/right

I have a 98 Prelude (not SH), 5 spd manual, with about 118k miles on it.

Recently it started making this grinding/gurgling noise when I turn left and right. It does it more when I turn left than when I turn right. And it only does it through first gear and part of second. Sometimes it does it when I'm in the last seconds of braking and when I've almost came to a complete stop. And pushing in the clutch when it's making the noise doesn't matter either; sometimes it stops and sometimes it still does it.

I tried to experiment with it as much as I could to give you guys the best description of what exactly it's doing and when it does it. It's only a grinding/gurgling sound, that's the best that I can describe it.

And I searched and found posts about similar cases with Civics and Accords but I could never find a definite answer. The suggested problems ranged from a bad Intermediate Shaft Bearing to bad CV joints.

So if any of you have had a similar problem or know what the problem is, please help.

Welcome to the world of front wheel drive. It most likley you C.V joint/axle. And it would be the right one if it happens when turning left. One way you could test it is turn the wheel all the way in one direction, then take off with a little power and see if it "clicks".

Well I tried that but it doesn't really make a "click." It's just this grinding sound that happens in 1st gear mainly.

no drop, stock suspension (as far as I know).. is there any way to test the CV joints to see if they are in fact the problem? or if I take it to a shop can they check them somehow?

If you're turning your wheel and get the clicking / grinding noise it's 100% your axles. If it's gear dependant then it's your transmission. Not hard to figure out if you've got a bad axle is it

Well considering I've never had axle problems with any of my cars then I figure it is hard for me to tell just exactly what this is.

::UPDATE::

I fixed the problem. Turns out it was the rear brake pads all along. They had worn down unevenly at sort of a slant to where part of it was metal to metal. And whenever I would turn left or right, I guess my car would put pressure on the metal part of the pads and cause a grinding noise.

Well all is good. Just thought I'd post this for future reference.

if you just got your first car and you don't know much about mechanics, I'd say it would be pretty hard to know for sure what is wrong with your car
