CV Axle Service & Repair | Lewisville / Argyle, TXReliable CV Axle Service and Repair at Fifth Gear Automotive

Your vehicle’s CV (constant velocity) axles and joints are responsible for taking the power made by the engine, and directing it to the wheels, propelling your vehicle down the road. All of this must be done while constantly adjusting with the up-and-down motion of the vehicle’s suspension. Over time the protective rubber boots that keep lubricating grease in, and road debris out can wear out and require servicing and replacement.

Regular Axle Service is Crucial

CV axles and joints should be inspected periodically for excessive wear and damage. One thing to keep and eye out for is a damaged CV boot. The protective boot is vital for long life of the CV joint, and when it is damaged it should be replaced as soon as possible to avoid wrecking the CV joint. When the boot is ripped, it allows dirt and grit to mix with the grease creating an extremely abrasive mixture that chews through metal. Once this has gone on for long enough it can cause problems with steering, cause wobble in the wheels, or even freeze up completely!

Signs of damage to the CV axle or boot are:

  • Splattered grease on or in the area surrounding the CV boot
  • Clicking noises while turning
  • Clunking noises while accelerating

If caught early enough, a new boot and some fresh grease will solve the problem. If it has already gone too far, the axle will need to be replaced. Keeping a close eye on your vehicle will pay off in the long run by avoiding major repairs and will keep your vehicle safe for you and those around you.
