Just wondering

Hi guys.

Just wondering if any rotational play in the outer (wheel end) CV joint?

probably 5mm as a rough estimate.

Also, how much crease should be in the CV boot?

Jam packed or just a bit on the joint itself?

Re: Just wondering

I've never found that there is rotational play in the cv joint! It is held in place by interlinking rigdes!

This is a pick of the joint apart on a megane though!
And lots of grease is needed... but no need to fill the boot.
