Hi new to the forum as I have just bought a 1.6 senic alize 1998 .The problem is that the n/s driveshaft is clicking when I turn right,and I am wondering if I will have to change the full driveshaft or can I seperate the cv joint and just change that.Any advice will be gratefully received.

Well
I checked the CV joint , and it was not dry, there was penlty of grease in there, however, and bare with me on this one,(hard to explain) When i pulled the cv boot back to check for grease, i noticed that in the center of the cv joint, there was a button head, like bolt wich i pressume goes to the outer hub, and as i spin the wheel around, this nut head, if thats what it is , moves about by about 3-4mm, in and out, so am i right to presume that the outer nut in the wheel hub is, either one not tight(ive tried to check but i no these should be tight), or has some body put it together wrong , as in missed a washer out or something or the bolt is out of thread (so its as tight as can be but not enough) etc
I have spoke to my dad about this as he has done loads, of work on all kinds of cars, but im convinced that between this button head like thing on the inside, of the joint to the outside, were the main nut is there is some thing else,
Any way this knocking noise is driving me mad hope that(well not really hope), some one has had the same problem or knows the working of a cv joint.
Thanks to you all,
Any ideas, are well well welcomed.
