Re: bit of a coincidence - help.
I've had to replace both CV couplings on my car, and in both cases the knocking noise was initially mild and intermittent... almost to the point where I even suspected that I might be imagining the noise.
However, when left to run its course, it feels like an imminent total drive failure (which of course it is), and you end up creeping to the nearest repair station at walking pace, ears tuned to the constant clacking from your drive train, convinced that your lack of attention has caused the destruction of you pride & joy.
I was lucky and managed to get to the dealer's repair shop in time to have my CV couplings replaced under warranty without any further damage.... I suggest you have your wife's car checked out ASAP.
