Front outer CV joint 16" w Diff Lock

Postby lsidir » 28 Aug 2018, 08:19

Hi everyone,

I have a bad cv joint on my 16" panel van. It is the front outer with the diff lock, so is the big one, with part no 251 498 099 C.

It seems that there is no replacement part to be found anywhere. So my questions to you are:

1. Does anyone have a spare to sell?

2. Can I use parts from another cv joint (e.g., balls, cage etc.) to fix the existing one? (I dont know exactly what is broken since I am still on the road and until I reach my destination I can not dismantle it and check).

3. Are there any alternatives to the original that I can use? Maybe from another car with some modifications? Anyone done something similar before?

Thank you very much for your help!

Change to the smaller outer joint and slightly thinner shaft.

I think I would pay 800 for a pair right now, I prefer that to the alternatives :|

They seem to appear in small batches . I bought a pair last time they surfaced on brickwerks and then they were gone. Don’t know whether they are only reproduced by GKN in short runs or they just find a few boxes knocking around the factory.

Speak to these guys - they manufacture driveshafts to order and have a good reputation

Aa only the joints. I think I will just sit on my shafts a joint then. Sold a complete one last year for £250. Far to cheap.

So, do you have stock for sale? Why sit on it and not sell it to me? :shock:

So I finally managed to take apart the front cv. Always a messy job...

Here are some pictures. It looks to me that the damage is only on the cage and the inner collar, but not on the balls or the housing. So another idea is to find somehow spare parts, a cage and a collar.

I would say that its worn out and any "repair" is just that, a Desert Rat/get-you-home recycling job, at best.
16" are a pain in the ring, imho.

I also saw that lobro-gkn offers some kind of express repair service

http://www.gkngroup.com/GKNDrivelineServices/products/Pages/eXpress-repair.aspx

I still can not believe that if I give the dimensions (shaft perimeter, outer width etc.) there is no generic cv joint by lobro that matches those measurements.

Did you get to talk to these guys - they manufacture to exceed OEM standards, helpful and not as expensive as you might think
