If the engine is the heart of your vehicle, then you’d agree that the driving axles are the arms and legs.
The driving axle is a complex piece of equipment. Just like your arms and legs, there are several interconnecting systems that provide the axle power and control for its movements, making your ride safe and simple.
Over time, driving axles can wear out or get damaged with use. A faulty driving axle can cause you to lose control of your vehicle, risking your and the lives of other passengers at risk.
It is important for automobile owners to recognize the symptoms of drive axle trouble. If you realize your vehicle needs drive axle repair, you should immediately take it to an auto repair shop.
Signs of Axle and CV Joint Failure:
- Clicking sounds when turning
- Grease on the edge of the tire
- Excessive vibration while driving
If caught early, components like axle boots can be replaced right away and you may be able to continue driving for a while longer. If you are already seeing grease splattering, chances are that the axle has been contaminated or has lacked lubricant long enough to be damaged.
