    If its knocking/clicking it will probably want replacing - that's usually the first sign - has the boot split.

    Had the same problem with my ahem Ford Granada. I was given all sorts of scary stories about cost and replacement. I removed it took it apart, cleaned it, packed it full of white grease, I can't remember what it was called. I then rebuilt it and covered thousands of mile, about 50,000, until I sold it and never had a problem with again.
