205 axle movement

An example of excessive wear in the rear axle of a Peugeot 205 recently presented for an Mot, usually found on some of the “go faster” 205s this  was found on a small 1000cc model. With the “go faster” models the wear is usually immediately apparent by signs of the rear tyre rubbing on the inside of the rear wheel arch. However in this case with the vehicle having 145 x 13 tyres the play only showed up by rocking and shaking  the rear suspension. Whilst the video doesn’t show the amount of movement very well the audible clunk is quite apparent The tyres fitted to the rear axle were quite new, so no unusual wear was apparent.
