HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR CV AXLE IS BAD?
1. 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 noisewhen turning. When CV axles become excessively worn, the joints will become loose and click when turning.
2. Grease on edge of tire. Another symptom of 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.
3. Excessive vibration while driving. Another symptom of a bad CV axle is excessive vibrations from the axle while driving. If a CV joint or axle shaft is damaged in any way that affects its balance while rotating, it will cause the shaft to vibrate excessively while operating the vehicle. The vibrations may oscillate, or become more pronounced as vehicle speed increases. Excessive vibration from failing CV shafts can interfere with handling and ride characteristics, and the overall safety and comfort of the vehicle. Usually the CV axle will need to be replaced if it is damaged enough to cause vibrations.
