Clicking noise in front end - FIXED

I had been developing a bad case of a low speed clicking noise in the front end when stopping and starting. Searching the forum turned up a few owners with similar noise, but the causes seemed to be varied.

It finally got so bad that I took it to the dealer - first problem trip to dealer in three years. Service tech found a bad right side axle shaft. I'm puzzled as to how a shaft alone could make such a noise, as I was expecting it to be a bearing or CV joint problem. Took a couple days to get the parts, but dealer gave me a loaner so I was pretty pleased. Now my 2013 drives quieter than ever.

Has anyone else had to have an axle shaft replaced?

Good question. The part # is 22868218. The sketch in the parts listing is rather vague. It's called an axle assembly, so it very well may include the CV joints.
Yes, an axle shaft assembly includes any CV joints. (which likely was the source of any noise)
