This is what happens when your CV Axle breaks (Carnage Pics Inside)

I know it at least needs a new fender, inner liner, cv joint/Axle , control arm, ball joint maybe not sure yet...happened while I was breaking but luckily no one was around. I was on a backroad around 1:30 or so in the mourning. A gracious driver in a Jeep stopped and let me use his iphone to call a tow truck, thanks Shay.

Here ya go...











I'm okay if you are wondering but, the car not so much it's getting towed to the shop tomorrow mourning...thanks for looking and would appreciated any insight as to what might have happened to the CV itself?

My guess is.... something else broke loose and your axle got trashed by basically being pulled apart.... just my opinion

Glad you ok OP, that could have been a lot worse.

Before this happened were the CV's clicking when you turn the wheel or was there any clunking coming from the front wheels?
