Hi all, I'm half way through an outer CV boot replacement and the circlip supplied with the GKN boot doesn't seem correct. The material used to manufacture appears too thick when compared to the original. The original has no signs of corrosion etc. so I'm tempted to re-use. I can't knock the CV joint back on with the new circlip fitted. Has anyone had this issue before? Should I just inspect and re-use the original? Thanks!
bastibum posted a topic in Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and BrakesHelp, I am in the process of replacing the cv joint on my '84 breadvan. Getting the ball joint loose was already a pain in the ####. But getting the control arm back on the hub again is even harder. It does not seem to align, when I try to push up the hub with a jack it also pushes outward. What should I do?
Hi guys, I own a 6n2 1.0 Polo and I think I have a potentially expensive problem. Since the last few weeks, Ive noticed everytime I press the clutch in and out, I hear a faint *clunk* (always happen when releasing the pedal), regardless of where the gear stick is. Now its stopped with another problem. Everytime I drive, my car always jerks regardless of whether I have my foot in the gas. It turns out, my car always jerks at low rpm and stops jerking when I drive with the revs over 2000 rpm. When Im stationary, it doesnt jerk and the engine idles fine. When I recorded my engine revving upto redline, the engine remained tamed in its engine mounts (didnt move lol). When I drive inbetween the jerking range, and I press the clutch and coast. The jerking stops. I was also told that my cv boot or joint or gaitor or whatever the black rubber thing that my axles are connected to is called, its ripped on both sides with small leaks. So whats the potential cause of this? Please dont say its the clutch. Please say its just low transmission fluid.
