Routine maintenance and servicing / CV joint and boot check (Every 10 000 miles (15 000 km) or 12 months)


1 With the vehicle raised and supported on axle stands (see УJacking and vehicle supportФ), turn the steering onto full lock then slowly rotate each roadwheel in turn to facilitate inspection of the CV joints and boots.

2 Inspect the condition of each CV joint boot while squeezing it to open out any folds (see illustration). Check for signs of cracking, splits or deterioration of the rubber which may allow grease to escape and lead to the entry of water and grit into the joint. Also check the security and condition of the boot retaining clips. If any damage or deterioration is found, the boot should be renewed.

3 At the same time, check the general condition of the CV joints themselves by first holding the driveshaft and attempting to rotate the roadwheel. Repeat this check by holding the inner joint and attempting to rotate the driveshaft. Any appreciable movement indicates wear in the joints, in the driveshaft splines, or a loose driveshaft nut.
