Testing CV joints in Cars

Postby bmaxxx on Wed Sep 03, 2003 2:14 am

Hey guys this is something i found while looking up stuff on the net and will be usefull to some people. It is particularly usefull for cars that are from wheel drive.

testing the CV joint in cars:

1) find an open area like an unoccupied carpark
2) turn the steering wheel to a full lock either left or right
3) reverse the car slowly then give it a little (just a little not tear away)
4) you can then do it with the wheel full locked in the other direction

If there is a problem with the CV joints you'll hear a grinding sound from the direction of the wheel with the problem.

hope it helps!
