Clicking noise when turning?

It does this turning in both directions. Is this difficult to fix? CV joints? drive axles??

sounds like cv joints. either way I would say find out which side it is and replace the whole axle. Its easier and you are better off in the end.

CV joint. I had it happen in an '88 Civic and a '90 Accord. You've worn the outer axle splines out and they're slipping against the splines of the center axle, hence the clicking noise. Its actually something you can replace yourself with a buddy. Took my buddy and I about 3 hours to do and we'd never done it before. Get new axles and new CV boots. It'll only get worse if you let it go, too.

it's winter time ...
I would say go for an oil change at local walmart
while on the lift have the mechanic jump into the car - turn the wheels left and right in drive and reverse

I suspect CV's or passenger axle boot torn up ..
