I bought another Renault
I couldn't resist a cute little MKII 1999 1.2 petrol Clio RN so I snapped it up for my sister.
Turns out she's already bought a new car so now I'm lumbered with it
Anyway, it needs a bit of attention most importantly the driveshafts / CV joints. They are knocking quite badly and so I'm going to renew them. Done this job only once before on an old VW and it was fairly straight forward, the trickiest bit being access to the inner joint bolts holding it to the gearbox.
Can anybody give me any clues, advice, recommendations for changing the driveshafts on the Clio please ? I would prefer to change the complete shaft rather than knocking it about taking the joints off. Any good, cheap parts suppliers recommended here ?
I've bought new ball joints and track rod ends already so that I can replace those while the hub is off. I also bought new ARB bushes. I just don't have a Haynes manual yet so I'm hoping for some help here.
Are the MK1 and MKIII driveshafts compatible with the MKII's ? Do I need any "special" tools except for a ball joint splitter and hub puller ? Anything else I would be wise to change before spending £50 on the tracking ?
