CV joints.... ah my nightmare.....
I change my gearbox recently and decide to change both inner & outer CV joints. while getting the inner on off it decided to break!!! so I also needed one. they are hard to find and Renault do a CV bearing kit... thats what they told me. anyway this was £60+ plus VAT. so I sourced a renault dismantler... A5 French car Dismantlers. Nr. Leighton Buzzard. I got a new drive shaft for my laguna '95.
the thing is that the drive shaft was slightly different and didnt fit straight in. so I dismantled the CV joint (newone) and put the old one back together..... is was a bit fiddly but I did it. So I did the same with the other bearing and now its great.
were theres a will theres a way...... specially if you want to save money!!!!!
