    no only 23000 miles on car but checked ands also no brake warning light on. is sound like two uneven pieces of metal rubbing hard together. also its a 3.0 cdti does the extra weight make them prone to any faults

    The cv joint normally makes a clicking noise quite loud when its on it's way out & its usually the outer joint which goes, if it is the joint you are looking around £200 ish for the part, then prob an hour labour on top.

    I'm quite sure it's sorted mate, no offence, but it says these were posted in 2008!?
