    Torn boots on the CV joints, cause them to fail. Dirt salt, rocks, and water tear them up. Ive replace a few, in my time.
    Cold garage floor. Not fun.

    I just got done replacing the clutch switch. Let me tell you, that was a lot more of a pain. The CV Boots are a breeze compared to that.





    The switch is at the top of the clutch pedal behind a bracket (removable thank goodness). You remove the seat and lay on your back, jam your head between the clutch pedal and kick panel and can barely get two fingers on it. Claustrophobia is not your friend there.

    About all I recognize there is the fuse panel and the 3 pedals. Where is the switch located; just above the clutch pedal hinge, that black box? (And what is the bar that runs between the gas and brake pedal?)

    I assume you were having trouble with the starter circuit not engaging? What steps did you use to diagnose the problem?

    it is above the clutch pedal and the bracket is covering it. When you are on your back you take your left arm and snake it above the steering columns and can barely reach it with a few fingers. It is the purple colored piece in the picture.





    Diagnosing is tough without a scan tool to check the switch status compared to pedal position. It is the first thing that needs to be verified in a no crank condition as long as the engine isn't seized and the battery tests good.

    Sorry for your loss.





    Both of my cv boots are torn. I've been pushing them off for a while now, along with the breaks..... and friday I got a nail in the rear driver tire..... that I haven't plugged yet....

    Guess I'll be getting some car parts soon

    Thanks.

    My passenger boot tore last year at some point but there wasn't a CV boot readily available. I had my car up on jackstands recently and noticed the driver side torn now, too, so i figured now is the time while the car is up on 4 jackstands (non-Harbor Freight) Lifting cars up is not my favorite thing to do anymore and this car is a bit of a pain.

    The good news is the joints were perfect with no wear. The passenger side was busted a while and I squirted some tripod grease in there for the hell of it. I don't drive in the winter, though, so avoid the rock salt and debris from the season.

    YMMV, but I've always had good luck throwing boots on cv joints. I'm glad DI Corse is bringing the boots in for us. Better than buying an axle for a torn $20 boot.

    I wasn't familiar with tripod grease, thanks. That's one of the advantages of inspecting the underside, time to time. If you catch cracks early on you can often save the joints from fail.

    In the past I've just wiped out the old grease and forced new down into the joint. I've usually used the little packets because they are pre-measured. I'm one of those guys who gets carried away with a grease gun... not good on a CV.

    Hey FIAT fam.

    Here's a proof of life (for me and my car.)

    Garage Takeover.jpg

    I've been staying busy at the office with real hands on work so I'm not here as often. Work from home was much harder than I expected, luckily we are an essential business and I have essential product testing to complete. I think in the future I'd like to work two days from home, but I still need to get out of my chair and do things once in a while to stay sane.

    I hope everyone and your loved ones are staying safe.

    Edit: Lol! My plate obfuscation isn't very good. Can anyone tell me what our MINI's plate reads?

    Nice looking garage! Was missing you and glad you're staying safe. My wife just went back to work after 2 months off. I've been working regular hours all the way through. So far so good.
