Default FT TC4 problem


My FT TC4's right rear cvd keeps coming off the cvd axle. The pin that holds them together goes missing. Even with threadlock on the set screw that locks down the pin. Any ideas? This has happened the last 2 times I have driven the car-so I'm guessing it will happen the next time.

Maybe the set screw is not reaching the pin. Try to assemble it without the axle part of it. When you put in the pin and tighten down the set screw can the pin still move? You could also try a different set screw as sometimes it just can't hold onto the pin anymore for whatever reason.

Try taking a small piece of cling wrap and put it around the CV joint. Heard this keeps the pin from falling out when the set screw fails. Used to happen all the time on the old AE GT.
