Car was parked up for a very long time with a ripped CV boot.

I know the i dirt and grime gets in it can mess things up. But what exactly will happen and what symptoms should I be looking for?

Car feels funny (maybe cos it’s been brought out after a long time and maybe dragging to left a bit). Know there’s other reasons this could happen but could it be related to anything the ripped gaiter at all?



At best, grit and dirt will get in and the joint will wear prematurely. At worst, the joint could sieze and fail at speed - there's a reason it's an MOT failure.
