car stuff

The CV joint in our car popped out while I was driving yesterday. The car had been to the garage the day before, to fix the CV joint. But was starting to make a knocking noise again. So I phoned and was told to keep driving carefully, which I did, and they would look at it tomorrow.

And then bang and the entire CV joint on the left hand front tire is spraying grease and there’s a big open hole. Thankfully I was pulling off the road into a cafe at the time.

So the car is back in the garage, and today is the third day in a row we’re trying to juggle life around car and garage.

  1. Having been a mechanic in a former life that sounds incredibly dangerous and a lot like they made a serious mistake putting things back together. CVs don’t just pop off!
