CV joint weirdness

Postby Reverend » 17 Jun 2018, 07:36

So my front outer cv joint from drivers side (left here haha) was busted and ordered a new from ebay. Manufactured by Roulex and distributed by JP group. Instead getting one described to be oem like, i got something very different. Original joint is around 90mm wide from its widest part that contacts the wheel hub, this one is around 100mm wide. Has this weird lip that wont fit anywhere. Anyone else had this issue? Did you just remove the lip by force or what?

It suggests that the CV also fits another car. Looks like a pressed-on ring to me.
