    What's caused my cv joint to collapse ??

    Alright guys, whilst driving earlier I my
    Car suddenly started to knock it's tits off and my steering was getting thrown about like mad, first of all I thought my wheel was falling off haha. Any way I got home and had a look and noticed my cv joint had some play in it so I'm guessing it's that, but what would cause it to fail?? I also noticed my battery side engine (gearbox) mount had a bit of play in it and were my cars quite low the ARB has slightly rubbed on the drive shaft, just wondering if theses problems could of caused or helped the cv joint to fail? Thanks alot
    Vince

    Failure is usually started by the rubber boot splitting then the grease falls out and the joint becomes dry....
