C.V. Boot Replacement Services in Frederick, MD
The axles on your car connect the transmission to the wheels. Each drive axle has two CV joints. The inner CV joint connects the transmission to the axle, and the outer joint connects the axle to the wheels. As you drive over bumps or turn the steering wheel the CV joints move with the suspension or steering helping the wheels maintain a constant velocity. A CV boot covers the CV joints and protect them by keeping out dirt and debris. CV boots are usually made of rubber or plastic. The boots are designed to keep the grease the lubricates the C.V. joints in place. Without proper lubrication, a CV joint will wear out and won’t adjust to the motion of the wheels. CV boots naturally dry rot, crack, and split open with age. Since your CV boot keeps your CV joint properly lubricated, any splits in the CV boot will lead to a loss of lubrication. The resulting metal on metal contact can wear down your CV joints fairly quickly. That’s why replacing a cracked or torn CV boot as soon as possible is important. A simple visual inspection will determine whether or not the boot needs to be replaced. Neglecting regular inspections of the CV boot and accompanying components may lead to more expensive repairs and replacements down the road.
C.V. Axle Replacement Services in Frederick, MD
The CV axle assemblies wear out over time because of how the joints on them flex and move while you are driving and due to the extreme conditions they endure under your car. If the wheels on your car or truck hesitate, feel resistant to turning, make noise or vibrate while accelerating, or jerk around while driving or turning, your CV axle may have problems. Sudden pops and ticking noises while turning indicate that your CV axle may need to be replaced because a joint is worn out. Maintaining and replacing other components in your vehicle’s CV axle assembly, such as the CV boots, will keep your entire assembly working as intended and help prevent CV axle replacements. Driving with a damaged CV axle will only cause damage to other components and lead to more expensive repairs. At the first sign of trouble, contact a competent Frederick, MD auto repair mechanic to have your C.V. axles inspected and replaced if needed.
