Thanks for trusting us with your problem. I have trained in the automotive field and currently work as a shop foreman. I will be helping you today.
You will want to renew the joint. If the joint is not properly marked, it will be hard to get it working properly.
I have not seen to many sheared ball joints. I have seen the separate completely.
I have rebuild a few C/V but anymore its not as common. Re-manufactured joints cost is close to the same.
But if you did not mark them before refitting you not have a bad joint. The pins never go back to the original state.
not clear on last answer.could you elaborate.also it is safe to use for time being
Sorry about the last sentence. If you did not mark before you tore it down, its close to impossible to get it back properly.
You can drive it for now but I would not go very far in this condition.
If the noise is bad it could be shearing the spider. This is why I don't believe its a good idea to use.
thanks for your help.to sum up is my only answer to fit a new cv joint complete.
Yes. Remember next time to get a paint mark when you tear down.
They sell these nice auto mark pens. They are nice to use with greasy items.
I wouldn't take down normally, but job done for me by shaft being pulled out by wheel collapsing outwards. If only eh!
It seems to be that way at times. Many people are unsuccessful completely. Many customers who have a problem are unable to fix it themselves. This in the end costs people way more. You seem to understand what your doing. Save as much as you can.
