CV Joints & Shafts

The CV Joint allows the wheels on your vehicle to move up, down, left and right while moving.  The CV Boot protects the joint from dirt and water that gets sprayed up from your tyres. It also keeps the grease where it should.  Escaping grease can be flicked onto brake components casuing problems and additional costs.

CV Shafts are one of the most common components that require replacement. They carry the power from the engine and transmission to the wheels, so it is important these are inspected for wear or damage as part of your vehicle's regular service.

CV Joints have a limited life and are prone to wear out due to their design, the constant loads they bear and contamination.  A visual inspection of your vehicle's CV shaft will determine if any of the components require replacement.  Our regular service includes an inspection of the CV shaft, CV joint and CV boots and we will recommend repairs or replacement if worn out. 

Problems may show up if you hear a "clacking" sound as you turn your vehicle.  The best case is that it is only the CV Boot that needs to replaced with no damage to the joint.  If the CV Joint has started to crack, it will need to be replaced.  It is best to replace the CV Boot at the same time.

Problems caught early can help keep repair costs down.
