How To Know When Your CV Axle is Bad

It can be difficult to know when the cv axle shaft on your vehicle is going bad. Many people don't even know what a cv axle shaft is, let alone what to look for when it's going bad. In this blog post, we'll teach you how to identify problems with your cv axle shaft and when it's time to replace it. We'll also provide some tips on where you can go to get a quality cv axle shaft replacement.

U & CV JOINTS & DRIVE SHAFT



Clicking Sound

If you're hearing a clicking noise when you turn the wheel, it could be an indication that your cv axle shaft is going bad. The clicking noise is caused by the CV joint at the end of the cv axle shaft. As the cv joint wears down, it becomes less able to absorb shock and vibrations. This can cause the clicking noise, as well as other problems like a vibration when you're driving.

Greasy Tires

If you're seeing grease on your tires, it could be a sign that your cv axle shaft is bad. The grease is coming from the cv joint, and it's a clear indication that there's something wrong with the cv axle shaft.

Knocking Sound

If you're hearing a knocking sound when you drive, it's likely that your cv axle shaft is the culprit. The knocking sound is caused by the CV joint at the end of the cv axle shaft. As the cv joint wears down, it becomes less able to absorb shock and vibrations. This can cause the knocking sound, as well as other problems like a vibration when you're driving.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to get your cv axle shaft replaced as soon as possible. Driving on a bad cv axle shaft can cause further damage to your vehicle and could even lead to an accident.
