Cv joint querry



  • Hi,
    my pal recons i need a inner cv joint but i can only see cv joints on ebay.
    sorry for stupid question but will these ebay cv joints have the inner cv joint?
    and as any one used these ebay cv joints?any good?

    well i am worried as he said he had same problem on his volvo and the drive shaft came out :roll: and i dont want this expecially so close to xmas and being freezing lol.
    thanking you in advance



  • Inner and outer CV joints are seperate items. You would get the inner joint as part of the driveshaft on the MX3 and the outer joint attaches to this.

    can find outer ones but not inner and what ive seen of shafts i could just by a hole car for a little more lol.

    what should i do mate?
    thanks



  • You can check your inner CV joints by crawling under the car getting hold of the drive shaft and moving it about any way you can and see if you can feel excess play in it. Try to turn it, pull it, and rock it.

    never got email notification for this.

    thanks mechanic.
    well i tried that and no movement at all so i have now bought a cv joint kit 12 quid and the garage said it sounds like the cv joints a gonna so 25 to them for fitting.
    wanted to fit my self but i want it done right.

    searched every where for the inner cv joint and cant find them no where.
    what would you recons gone?
    only knocking steering to the left and only on quarter lock?



  • how do i tell a abs cv joint to a normal one too while im here and before i collect this cv joint?
    thanks



  • ABS has that serated style rotor in the middle. I just installed one from fordprobestore, seemed like a quality part.

    Most of those use different joints and shafts, they are not the same.

    Well I'd recommend high quality parts like the ones I sell (I would I'm biased after all), I could sell those cheap ones if I wanted, but I dont, as I think they are poorly made and will have a shorter life, and I dont want a reputation for selling low grade stuff.

    £12 for a CV joint, if that is a new one, it really isnt going to be high quality at that price. Time the seller takes a few quid profit, the shipping cost from factory, manufacturers profit, the actual money left to make and for components within is pennies.



  • lol I was dubious about buying Roc's CV as I thought £32 was too cheap for the amount of machining and work that goes into making one of those! £12 you've gotta worry unless it's an unwanted part sell out, but sure it'll keep you going. Everything I've bought of FPS has never had to be replaced, so the minimal extra cash is worth the security to me. Ebays great but I personally avoid it for functional, vital parts.
