Carina 2 Cv Joints
Posted 11 January 2011 - 02:20 PM
I've got the Peter Russek manual as this seems to be all that is available and it says that you would need to replace the whole driveshaft if it is the outer joint that is worn, yet the local autoparts dealer can supply the joint on its own. I'm at a bit of a loss here as it's proven near impossible to get any really good information about the carina 2 which is a great car. If anyone knows of any other good service manuals or sites please let me know.

Ud be as well to replace the whole shaft, one from the scrapyard will do well and will be cheaper than a new shaft. To the best of my knowledge you can replace the outer cv joint, ive never known the inner cv joint to fail on these models.

You can't see it while the cv unit is on the shaft, but if you strike the rear of the cv unit with a soft hammer, nylon or hide, the unit slides off the shaft, you just have to use enough force to overcome and compress the spring clip.

Is this a job that is urgent or not ? Are there many examples of this model in scrap yards up and down the country?
Any idea what Toyota would charge for repair as my car is due for service in April?
Yes, I agree, what a great car, I am amazed daily.
