Signs You Need CV Joint Repair
CV joints are most commonly found on front wheel drive vehicles, though you will also see them on rear wheel drive vehicles. There are different designs of CV joints, most commonly the tripod and ball variations. Our ASE-certified auto techs at Newton’s Care Care can handle all types of CV joint repair and replacement!
CV joints rarely, if ever, need repair, but when they do, you’ll want a professional mechanic. There are inner and outer CV joints, connecting the transmission and drive shaft, and wheels to the drive shaft, respectively. These joints stay lubricated with grease and are typically covered by a plastic or rubber boot for protection. It is usually this boot that gets damaged, leading to corrosion and moisture entering the CV joint.
If this problem is caught early enough, you can usually just have the protective boot replaced. However, if the CV joint has sustained damage, it may require new grease or replacement. The best way to see if you have a problem with your CV joints is to visually inspect them from time to time. Most will last the lifetime of your vehicle, but everyday wear can cause damage over time.
