Resolved Question:

Hi, I just bought a Kia cerato 56 plate. It shakes bad when I accelerate hard between 40 and 55. Fitted new tires, had allignment done. I see advise about cv joints, driveshaft etc. What do you think. It stops after 60 and not noticeable at slower speeds. Would hate to change all those parts to eliminate problem.

Hi Greg!


 


I wonder if you are able to give me an indication how much this generally cost to repair? The cv joint, just a ball park figure as I am sure it depends from location to location? Thanks for the advise.I cannot attempt to fix it but can have a look if I can find a mechanic in Carlisle.

Hi .

If it is the CV joint then the drive shaft left or right side can coast anything from £85.00 to £300.00.
Check Ebay for this item .
labor will be around 1.5 Hrs.
