Q: I bought a cv axle with abs for my non abs car

asked by on

I have to change my cv axle and my car doesn't have abs. i accidentally ordered one with abs. Will it fit. I heard thay only difference is abs tooth.

My car has 190000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. I would recommend returning the incorrect CV axle and replace it with the correct item. There are sometimes fitment issues with this component that may cause additional damage to steering or drive line components in your Kia. Always better to be safe than sorry.
