Hello everybody....

My ride is a trajet 2.0 gls yr 2002 model. Currently hitting 122000 km.

recently about 2 weeks , noticed nose from the rh wheel when turning at low speed. After inspecting noticed cv boot broken .

Contacted local agent, they have confirmed that the cv drive joint is faulty.

the issue is .

1. do one need to change both the drive shafts lh and rh...
2.Can the cv joint be repaired


I know for a fact that , the problem does not cause any danger to driving the car, nothing would just drop off, it just that the irritating noise when turning.

anybody has similar problems

They can do one side only if it failed prematurely. I have even heard of replacing the whole rotor and axle as well since labor would be more expensive taking it all apart. But that was on another vehicle. So If you didnt see damage I would say are you sure its not vibrating accross to the other side of the engine bay and making it seem like its from the right but I assume a good indicator is the broken boot. Did you check the other side too?

I was told by hyundai that the shaft for Trajet is a single piece item and one that cannot be interchange or change parts .....

Are you refereing to trajet shafts or any other?

Would really like to take you advice and change only the cv joint and boots ? where did you do this bro?

the saga continues .....

Today got my Trajet to a specialist who only deals in cv joints.

They took off the shafts and cv joints , and confirm the cv joints can be replaced ..what a relive.... and now i know i was smoked by hyundai .

The cv clinic guys are taking the mitsubishi magna 2.4 l cv joints , which are identical in part number to the my Hyundai trajet 2.0 cv joints.

They also confirm that the shafts need not be changed unless the shaft itself was damaged by a crash or etc. there is no way a shaft would wear down.

yah, the shafts do not need to be replaced unless they are bend or damage due to accident.

so how much did you pay to replace the CV joints, boots and installation in down under ?
