How do I tell if my CV joints need replacement? Boots are not torn, and no visible grease outside the boots. They are original and have 211,000 miles on them. Ody is a 1999.
With the front wheel jacked up and the car in park, I can rotate the wheel through an arc of about two inches at the circumference. Is this excessive? I also hear a 'clack' or 'clunk' noise when reaching each end of the rotation. Both front wheels have the same condition.
my concern is that this is play in the cv joints as I read in the Haynes manual that the grease lasts 100,000 miles and I don't know if Honda did anything with the CV joints when the Trans was replaced at 186,000.
