Well, at 144K miles, the 200 20v failed me tonight. Was looking for parking for
the BU/BC hockey game. Turned a tight corner, heard a "clunk" from the front
passenger side wheel well. I pull over and take a gander. Everything looks ok,
nothing obvious is wrong.
Go to pull back out into traffic, let out the clutch, nothing. Engine was
spinning, but car was not moving. I could hear something spinning in the front
passenger wheel well, but nothing was happening.
Upon closer inspection, I could see that the 1/2 shaft was spinning, but the
wheel was not moving.
I'm guessing the outer CV went bye bye. I'm trying to decide what to do next.
Is this a fairly easy DIY? Especially when it is 30 degrees out? I seem to
remember it is easier and cheaper to just replace the whole 1/2 shaft. Anyone
have any thoughts there?
Trying to decide where to get the car towed to tomorrow, home or the shop. That
is if they are even open tomorrow.
