Re: Sonett 3 Outer cv boot
There's no temporary patch, but on the other hand, unless you are driving on sandy windswept or wet and
salted roads, I wouldn't be overly concerned about delaying the repair just as long as you are careful to
keep injecting some moly-graph grease in amongst the balls now and then to keep them lubed and quiet.
While with the wheel aimed straight ahead it might seem there's room for a patch, when turning it can be seen
that the room completely disappears and any patch will be put under tremendous stress.
One nice thing about these Saab half shafts and bearing carriers is that they are swappable left for right;
possibly something which will prolong the useful life of both wheel bearings and U-joints.
