Ontopic A Thread About Butt Mustard, For Those Who Drive Automobiles

Discussion in 'useless chatter' started by Sarcasmo, Mar 8, 2013.

  1. OEM. Pay the money and never have to deal with a driveshaft failure again.
    Jehannum and Mr. Asa gravied this.
  2. Yup. Labor is a bitch
  3. That's because you have to take the whole thing out either way.

    I'd probably just get the boot.

    But then, I'm also the idiot who chased a boot failure from one side of the car to the other for no good reason at all, other than I didn't know what I was doing at the time.
    Mr. Asa gravied this.
  4. My acuras had the same issue. $600 to replace both front axles with rebuilt ones. Every 24 mos. what's the charge on 'lifetime' warranty?????
  5. Then disassemble the axle, something mechanics hate doing now.

    Labor's a bitch
    Jehannum gravied this.
  6. I'd hit it.

    HipHugHer gravied this.
  8. That's gonna leave a mark.
  9. lol built ford tough.
  10. HipHugHer and nukes gravied this.
  11. You're just jealous that the shop got to do all the huffing, aren't you?
    Mr. Asa, gee, nukes and 1 other person gravied this.
  12. 180 dollars all in, labor included, to replace that CV axle through yourmechanic.

    Could not hope for better than that. 94 in labor, 78 in parts.
    Ledboots, Amstel and nukes gravied this.
  13. I am a little broken up over it.
    Ledboots, Mr. Asa and nukes gravied this.

    I hope the $78 axle isn't cheap chinesium.
  15. OEM.
    Jehannum gravied this.
  16. how was the other side?
  17. other side was fine

    Mechanic says he sees a lot of odysseys tear up the drivers front boot for no reason.
  18. good, but weird. here (chicago area) the passenger side goes first supposedly due to speeding through the water on the curb side of the road constantly.

    any thoughts on why the drivers side? Poor boot design not handling a tighter turn? edit: nope, that's not it. hmmmm.
