Do you need new CV Joints? Look out for these clues and signals.

These joints are a part of the steering system, allowing your wheels to turn; if damaged, they can put you and your passengers at serious risk.
While driving, if you hear any clicking sounds when turning, there could be a problem with your CV joints.

Car Turning in Lot

Loud clicking noises when turning

One of the most common and most noticeable symptoms of a bad or failing CV axle shaft assembly is an audible clicking noise when turning. When CV axles become excessively worn, the joints will become loose and click when turning. The clicks may become louder or more pronounced during sharper and faster turns, and will be heard on the side with the faulty CV shaft.

Grease the Wheel

Grease on edge of tire

a problem with the CV axle shafts is grease on the inside edge of the tireor along the underside of the vehicle. This is usually caused by a torn boot leaking grease, which is tossed around while the axle turns. A leaky boot will eventually lead to CV joint failure, as dirt and debris will get into the boot and damage the joint.

Excessive vibration while driving

CV axles serve as the final link between the engine and the wheels. They serve the important function of transferring the torque from the drivetrain to the vehicle’s wheels in order to move the vehicle. For this reason, if you suspect that one or more of your CV axle shafts may be having a problem, a technician from Mototek will be able to help you replace it.

Bouncy Driving
