CV Joint replacement

Rudi to the rescue.
Last Friday the R/R CV joint in my van went kaputt. What a racket in the middle of a intersection.
Luckily Rudi was still in the area and was able to the remove the axle shaft on the side of a busy Hwy.
The point I want to make is the axle shaft was only installed less than 13000 km ago.
The kit I used is a 944 CV. The Invoice and package said GKN/Lobro however no actual marking on
the product. itself. By the way all the bolts were still tight.

Hey Theo,

Where did you get your kit from? So after the incident, would you still recommend the kit?

It looks like you did not receive my replay. I will try again.
Hi Alex,

I bought the set from MODERN ENGINE INC in the US on e-bay.

I certainly would not recommend the kit from this company.

Just after XMAS I had to replace the left outer rubber boot.

In the mean time I have bought the standard CV joint kit genuine Lobro.



Interesting Theo,

I thought the Porsche 944 CV’s were supposed to be bulletproof.

Must be driving too hard :wink:

Theo, do you think the CV’s you got are not actual Lobro? 13000km is not much even if driven hard

Hi Richard,

Not much to add, to what I posted in my first email.
Advertised as a genuine product but no trade markings on the actual parts.
So no, I don’t think it is genuine…
