I have a feeling I may have a CV joint on the way out (occasional knocking from the front O/S wheel area when turning). Just something I'm monitoring at the moment. If I need to replace it, are there any differences between the diesel engines? I only ask as there seem to be loads listed for the 1.9 and 2.0 but hardly any for the 1.6.

 

Also, would I be right in thinking that the Bravo items would fit?

I would clean and grease the inner cv joints (gearbox side) before condemning the outer (wheel side) cv joints.
The inners have been known to cause the same effects and noises of outer cv joint wear ;-)
Also, dry inner joints can cause shuddering through the car on uneven roads

Thanks for the info. I have the car in for a service next week, I'll ask them to take a look.
