    Default Broken CV joint?

    Pulled off the other day and heard a bang and before I knew it, a horrendous grinding noise coupled with loss of power to the wheels. I can select gear, just no actual movement. Reason I think CV joint is that 4 weeks ago I had the ARB snap and it damaged the cv boot so I had the ARB and the nearside cv boots replaced. When I was recovered by RAC, that's what the driver was convinced it was.does that sound right to you guys? Another few days without a car :-(

    jack up the nearside , put in gear , spin the wheel to see if it spins , if it does its prob the driveshaft , try the same on offside this should not spin .

    I would but I've gotta have the car ready for the weekend, plus I'm not confident enough to do it myself.
