While I was investigating an annoying squeak that I hear only while backing, I noticed that a few of the CV joint fasteners had partly backed out. WOW! So I immediately, commenced to torque them down to specification "30 ft lb." I tightened the passenger side first then moved to the drivers side. Here is where I think the problem lies.. I noticed after tightening the first fastener on the driver side while removing the hex head to move to the next fastener I pulled the CV Joint from the transmission about 1/2" and I could not push it back. Please help! I still have the squeak.
