Just upgraded from 2002 LE to 2004 LE 55K. Dad found it for me and notice a chatter in the brakes.
I took the tire off and could not find a problem in the brakes, dealer did a full brake job to "fix" the problem.
I did see a ring of grease slung out from the boot and assumed there was a split. I confirmed the split in one driverside boot at the transmission. I also see a transmission leak and traced it to the axle seals.
How much play should their be in the CV joints? At the transmissin? Up down/Side to side?
Jacked the car up and put it in gear and localized rumbling sound on passenger side and a chattering on driver side when lite brake applied. I noticed the chatter while driving and no other sound or problems with driving or turning.
I am thinking there is too much play and want to replace both drive shafts and seals. Will this correct the play? How much time do I have? No tranny oil on driveway just on inspection.
