Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta
The car has about 85,000 miles on it. For the last 15,000 or so, it appears as though the steering knuckle has become loose. In the "old days" there was an adjustment on the knuckle - which occasionally would need to have some tension added to it. I'm not sure if the Jetta has such an adjustment.
If not, is it normal that these "wear out" and have to be replaced? Does anyone have any experience with this.
I think you'll find that you need to replace the CV (Constant Velocity) joints. I doubt very much if there is any adjustment possible. They do wear out after a period of time, and 85,000 miles is good life for CV joints. Cheers from Aus.
