Mercury Villager

I replaced the CV Shaft on the passanger's side of my 99 villager but it seems to make a rubbing or grinding noise. Also CV nut goes about an inch down the shaft from the cotter pin. what's missing?

This is an involved procedure compared to the left shaft, but basically the same. The noise could be that the shaft was not fully seated in the transaxle. Or the washer was not put back in place at the outer stub. Did you use a new nut to attach the outer stub? The only other possibility is faulty new shaft bearings.
