Hi
I live in whangarei and need to replace the passenger side CV joint it is making a clicking a noise. I don't know much about cars, but have been told that this well cost me well over a thousand dollars. I can't believe it is this much. Are they ripping me off because I am female and don't know anything about cars. Please any help would be appreciated, or advice on someone I could trust .Thanks in advance

You could always start an overpriced auction for something that's not going to sell and he will be able to contact you through that.

intrade, Nov 1, 3:11am
automatic transmission right?

intrade, Nov 1, 3:41am
also not 4 motion? should say on back and 4motion is all wheel drive
also how bad is the clicking?

solong as it dont clicks when going straight it be ok to drive just dont accelerate hard in corners.
there is 2 sets of joint might have to inspect what is fitted if i cant be sure
what one your car has.

grosso12, Nov 1, 3:47am
yes and it is tiptronic as well

grosso12, Nov 1, 3:48am
The clicking is bad when I go around a corner, don't think it is clicking when driving straight, but is this happens do. Stop driving

grosso12, Nov 1, 3:49am
No it is not 4 mottion

intrade, Nov 1, 3:53am
it be less then 500$ fitted even if its the expensive one and it looks to be
states to Chassis No.: 3B-3P347470 and your chassy number is below that one P09.
so most probably its that 3kg Beast of a joint
also matches my eteka parts number for it .

grosso12, Nov 1, 3:57am
Ok cool , so do you do that kind of work as I would be keen to get it done when you r up next

intrade, Nov 1, 7:32am
if you want it done just buy the cv boot that would be the cost for a quick boot just hit buy now Regards

grosso12, Nov 1, 8:44am
Ok I will, where do I buy this, is it on trademe, sorry I don't know anything about cars, and do I need to buy the joint bit from some where. Thanks for the help.

Buy that

REPCO RCV633A CV - 38/27/59.5/45T ABS RRP $176.00 that's the cv joint. so your garage is charging $824 for labour. 2 hours would be tops for labour ? . repco only list one but maybe like intrade says its a special one ?
