    Really hard to explain like clicking/cracking sound checked seems to come from the drivers side checked drive shaft n cv joints n they all look ok not splits

    You can check a CV boot by looking but You cannot check a CV joint by looking at it, you are going to have to strip it down. From what you have said in your first post it does sound like a failing CV joint.

    Check to see if any bolts are missing on the driveshaft and/or if the link between the bolts are broken/loose

    You don't need to buy a drive shaft CV joints can be purchased separately, but first garage to check it over before spending the cash.

    I had the same problem and after months of trying to find out what it was I found it and it was a bolt on the subframe! All sorted now!
