JARAMA/ESPADA CV JOINTS SECRET - (Oct 2003) Last week I decided
to stop the vibration from the Jarama rear end. My mechanic dismantled
the half shafts and the CV ball joints. ("mardi gras") Not a clean job.
But there it was .. one ball was stuck in the channel . "should be
inspected every ten Years" said the mechanic. Ok what to do now.? A new
one - complete half shaft with two joints was $750, repair offer from a
special shop was $250 My mechanic, a real all rounder says "
looks like a CV ball joint from an Audi " Two days later: got it,
its an Audi 100 ( in USA 2000) 5 cylinder turbo automatic. $85, new,
fits perfect .... Vibration ? gone .. now my Jarama is without wind
noise and without vibration, starting a second life as Luxury car ...
and : one secret less! Dietmar
Re: JARAMA/ESPADA CV JOINTS SECRET - (Apr 2007) This is a nice
reference except one needs more information to find it. I think we have
Audi 100's over here (USA) is that what you meant and a model year 2000
or what? Bob S.
