    Hi Guys/Girls,

    Okay so i was driving home today, pulled out of a junction and suddenly no drive, just a clunking noise. AA man has a look and it's the inner CV Joint visibly knackered (The outer was replaced 2 weeks ago!) Now the engine overheats, no hot air from blowers and the serpantine belt is intact. No water is tricking down back in to the water resivoir. What a coincidence?! IS there anyway the CV joint, nearside going could cause a overheating problem like this?

    Many thanks
