Wrecked cv joint

Post by piki »

So i replace the cv joint on picasso c3 2012 diesel ,(passenger side), andwhen i put the cv joint back , i hammered it in wrong place , now i have clicking noise from this joint.
prob i damaged the bearing .
the local dealer says he cant find this cv join,and i need to replace the entire axle.

Both the ball joint kits are available from Citroen as well as the connecting rods, so I don't know where he is getting that from!

Ok, so if you are referring to the Driveshafts, then he is correct. Citroen do not sell the CV ball joints, only the complete left and right driveshafts.

I've fitted one of these J&R CV joints - I couldn't believe how cheap they were, but it seemed to be good quality, and fitted well (*), and the boot was good. It ran happily for a good few miles before I had to scrap the car for other reasons.

Presume you fitted a new boot. Did you remove the joint, or use a stretch boot? Did you put plenty of grease in?

* my only trouble was that the supplied circlip was the wrong section and didn't fit in the shaft, so made getting the joint back on difficult. I had to straighten out and clean up the old clip to get it back on.

1.6 92 BHP DV6DTED from that engine code of 9HP (68 KW), but pop your VIN up and we'll let you know for sure.
