Pics: JB Wwld??? - Album on Imgur
A few points:
-Honda has put a recall for all 2007 to 2013 Honda Fits to replace CV axles in rust belt states. This is a very common problem (according to fitfreak.net, Honda Fit owners forum.)
-I have an appointment with my local Honda dealer to have this recall done, to replace the CV axles, on September 9.
-However, before I could take my car in, the CV axle snapped today (bad luck.)
Anyways, getting a tow truck is difficult around this time because of Hurricane IDA in the NorthEast which left many cars flooded and stranded, and shops are super busy.
So, the idea is to use JB WELD to hold the CV axle together temporarily for a 1.3 mile drive at 5mph.
Due to way this thing snapped and with a very thick coating of JB Weld, this might possibly…work?
Most ppl think it’s dumb and dangerous though. I think if I drive SUPER slow and test it by driving 10 feets back and forth and braking to see if it’ll hold (remmeber braking puts a lot of stress on the CV.)
