Sorry for the delay in the reply.
Ditto. I had zero warning. The first hint of trouble was when I was pulling
out of stopped traffic onto a side street. Full lock right from a stop. I
heard a clunk. I was worried. I drove about a block and pulled into a parking
lot. I checked for anything obviously wrong. Saw nothing. Backed up to find a
parking spot, when I went to move forward, I heard a clunking/griding noise, the
engine revved, but the car did not move. Thoughts of multi thousand $$
transmissions danced in my head. I pushed the car into a stop, and went to the
hockey game I was going to.
After the game, my buddy came back with me. With the extra set of eyes, we were
able to determine that the 1/2 shaft was spinning, but the wheel was not, so bad
