Left CB Gauge?


I'm new to this forum and i have searched through forums and faq's and have not found an answer to a query

I recently had a service on my 2001 1.2 clio grande and the garage told me my left CB Gauge was leaking and would fail an MOT on this. They quoted me a price on this which sounded extortionate 150+ labour

I've googled this and can't find out what one of these is (i may have misheard him)

If anyone could let me know what one of these is and there approximate cost i would be most grateful

Re: Left CB Gauge?

I've never heard of a "CB gauge" either. I suspect that what you're looking at is a "CV joint." If you're not technically minded, they're the bendy bits in the driveshafts, which are in turn the bits that connect the engine and gearbox to the front wheels.

150 sounds expensive for the part. I'm not sure how much the labour should be. If it isn't noisy and is just losing grease, the joint itself is probably okay and it just needs a new rubber boot fitting.
