Noticed a loud metal to metal noise and thought my right front cv joint with a torn boot finally gave up.

Come to find out, the guilbo bolts have backed out and one bolt has fell off and causing the centering flange to hit the transmission case every rotation of the driveshaft.

Because the dealer is closed, I cant get the replacement bolts, I'm replacing the outer cv boot. It's a very messy job but not too difficult with the help of studying all the write ups here.

Good news, I thought I was going to have to replace the complete right cv joint, but it's only going to turnout to be a less than $20 job.

where did you get your 25mm H&R spacers? ECS is on backorder

DTMdan 07-02-2012 06:16 AM

Thanks. I got mine from ECS... ModBargains carries them as well, but they're more expensive H&R TRAK+ Spacers BMW X3/X5/X6 You should be able to find some on eBay too.

ayep, those'll reflect back atcha' nicely (shiny tailgates, store windows)..
are they DRL or parking (DRL, me, but we just turn 'em on full-time for the HIDs as we hate the half-hi-beam orange crap)

pnoyako85 07-02-2012 11:04 PM

no they are regular right now(non drl)...i turned off my DRL's cnt get the amber to turn off tho....but annoyingly they blink when i put my alarm on and when they go off..just worried they may burnt out from blingking when alarm goes and when lock and unlock the car.

Jet Black isn't easy to keep clean, but nothing looks better after a day under a Porter Cable
