Hi all... sry not been active here since long... my life is just so fooked rite now..
i dont have time for anything...
I have again a problem with my car...a few weeks back i had looked beneath it to see a round rubber cover type thing to be torn on a rod leading to a wheel... I did not know back then what it was and had decided to get it replaced in the next service.
Today i was going through its manual to check the maintenance schedule, i came across a word "drive shaft boots" in it. I did not get it so i searched for it on the net... seeing the images i now know that was the same thing that had torn apart on my car.
I do not hear any clicking noise even if i turn very sharply left or rite for now at least... btw the hole is on the left side wheel. There is no grease left inside, but the shaft is still covered with some. I don't know how long it has been torn but it is quite big.
I put my finger in to see how much debris is in there, well the grease felt rather very coarse between my fingers.
I have read that many a times the whole drive shaft has to be replaced in such a scenario.
What shud i do??
I guess the rite one also has some hole in it cause there's is grease on part of the boot.
Is it wise to get the whole shaft changed at this point when i can't feel anything wrong with it?
What to do of the other boot?
Why on earth have they switched to this damned fwd in the first place!?
