7.7.1. Noise in shaft of the drive of back wheels

The drive of each wheel consists of shaft and two hinges of equal angular speeds.
Hinges — rather reliable knots, but nevertheless pollution can result in their premature wear. Faulty hinges publish knocks at start or the movement by a backing. It is possible to hear these knocks and when moving the car with not started engine. At strong wear knocks develop into a constant beating.
At emergence of knocks it is rather difficult to define what of four hinges is their reason. For this purpose it is necessary to remove shaft of the drive of back wheels and to check manually, how smoothly and accurately hinges work.
After removal of shaft of the drive replacement of rubber antisplash covers and internal the CV JOINT is possible. Replacement of the external hinge is impossible — in this case replacement of all shaft of the drive is necessary.
