My Vehicle: 2013 XV Premium
Default "Tapping" noises when turning

 Baffling noise issue. My 2013 XV Premium has 67,000 miles. No offroad. Have a light "hammering" noise under car when turning. My first thought was "axle"; except the noise is 'Intermittent', not effected by braking/accelerating; and strangest of all - seems to 'shift' from side to side / front to back. (!) Anybody else going BONKERS with this?

Does it occur only on tight turns or does the tightness of the turn not matter?

Doesn't matter. Sounds exactly like a "clicking" c/v joint...except; "intermittent"? Probably not. Torque, brakes, e-brake; no difference. Pulled off every flimsy 'shield' in sight. Had a similar noise in front; broken 'pushpin' in fender well. Wondering about the rear differential. (limited slip "chatter"?) No service in 67,000 miles, because Subaru says you don't have to! Same for CVT. I don't believe them. Servicing both soon.

Newer Subaru vehicles tend to have open front and rear differentials, so LSD issues aren't possible unless you have a manual transmission, which has a viscous-coupling center differential. Issues can also still arise from the multi-plate transfer clutch pack on Lineartronic CVT models due to improper tire maintenance.
