Loose CV Shaft.

Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 Outback. I replaced the brakes on the front driver side and could not get the caliper to fully release to put the new pads on. I barely got the pads and caliper back in and drove it around. As I was driving the rotor got really hot and warped, causing major shaking. After this happening I realized a loud clunking noise when hitting little bumps. Upon inspection, I discovered that the shaft to the CV joint has some movement to it. I believe that is what is causing the rattle noise. It is possible that the vibration of the warped rotor caused a partial separation of the CV joint? Should I be concerned with this. Everything handles and drives fine. There is no clicking noise when turning and no vibration at high speeds. Thank you for your help.

you could compare to the movement of the other side. They can rotate a lot as various parts' 'slack' is taken-up. not sure other movement to which you refer...?

I think most of us would just fix the brake issue and drive the car. If grease/rubber/wheel speed sensor got too hot?, well, maybe something will begin to fail more severely, then , just fix it.
