CV Axle Replacement Service Information at Subaru of San Bernardino

What is a CV Axle & What Should You Know About It on Southern California Roads?

Schedule a CV Axle service in San Bernardino, CA

CV axles are sometimes known as half shafts, and the CV stands for Constant Velocity. These are the axles that transmit power to the wheels. Vehicle equipped with fully-independent suspension will likely be equipped with CV axles on the wheels that get power from the engine. Vehicles equipped with all-wheel drive, like most Subaru models, will have a CV axle for every wheel.

The CV half shaft axle is designed to send power to the wheels while also articulating with the suspension. This means they're equipped with rugged universal joints that require constant lubrication. The grease is contained by a rubber CV boot. A damaged CV boot is a common indication that the CV axle has gone bad.

How Can You Tell if a CV Axle is Bad?

Since the failure of the CV boot is a common indication of a bad CV axle joint, you may be able to diagnose the problem by looking at the boot. This means looking under the car behind the drive wheels. If the rubber boot is torn or extra greasy, it's likely time to call in the pros.

Another common indication of a bad CV axle is a rhythmic clicking when you turn. In some cases, this may simply be due to a lack of grease from a damaged boot. If you catch the problem early enough, replacing the boot and filling it with new grease may solve the problem. However, continuing to drive the vehicle when the CV axle is not properly lubricated can quickly lead to needing to replace the entire axle.
