I've a 1998 Terios that's just had the front CV joints replaced.

The gaiter over one of the joints has perished and dropped off. The mechanic tried to fit a universal gaiter but this lasted 2 miles before coming off.

I've been told the only option I have is to buy a new driveshaft just to get the gaiter. A new driveshft is about €620 and I can't bear the thought of having to buy a driveshaft just to get a gaiter.

I'm on the look out for a 2nd hand drive shaft with gaiters intact but apart from this, does anyone have any other ideas? I've had this car from new and it's been a brilliant car so I don't want to give up on it now Cray 2

Thanks in advance,

Universal Gaiter.

2004 Sirion 1300 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

I had one of the above on a Citroen TZD.

It stayed on for 3 years and passed the MOT 3 times.
Maybe it was not fitted very well.

Have you actually tried to get a gaiter for the car?

Someone on here I just know will know where you can get a gaiter from. Will take a lot of fitting though.

Sorry can't be of any real assistance though.
