CV Axle / Shaft Assembly Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Axle/CV Shaft Assembly all about?

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move.

Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.

Keep in mind:

  • Your car has multiple axle shafts, but in most cases only one will need to be replaced.
  • Even if the CV joints or boots are the only parts of the axle to fail, it is often recommended to replace the entire axle.

How it's done:

  • Verify the axle shaft needs to be replaced.
  • Remove wheel and replace faulty axle.
  • Torque all fasteners and wheels to factory specifications.
  • Check tire pressure.
  • Perform road test.

Our recommendation:

Every time you get a major service, the mechanic should perform a basic safety inspection that includes a visual inspection of the axles and boots. If there is grease found around the tires, it is likely that CV boots are leaking. Also, if you hear a loud clicking noise when you make a turn, it can mean that the axles are bad and need replacement.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Axle/CV Shaft Assembly?

  • Loud clicking noise in front or rear of the car when making a turn.
  • You may notice grease on the inner edges of the tires.
  • Vibration when driving.

How important is this service?

Axle shafts connect your transmission to your wheels. When you step on the gas pedal, the transmission gears turn the axle shafts, which then turn the wheels. Broken axle shafts will not rotate, and there will be no connection between your transmission and your wheels; as a result, your wheels will not move.

Peter

Peter was great! I have been to two mechanics before and they had no idea what was wrong with my car. They claim they fixed it and I was still having the same issue. First appointment with Peter he came and inspect explained to my what he believe it was. Made a second appointment to change all spark plugs, he wast thorough and fast. Explained to me exactly what is wrong with the car and how he fixed it. He knows what he is talking about. I'll definitely be willing to use his services again!

Lucas did an awesome job replacing my car's power steering return hose and fixed the trunk locking mechanism by replacing the actuator. Once again he arrived on time and worked on my car with great care and attention to detail. This guy is a professional and an expert auto mechanic. He knows everything there is to know about car repair and maintenance and he performs the job extremely well. Thank you Lucas once again for a job well done!

Steven
10 years of experience
Today was my first experience with Steven . Not only was he on time, he called to say he could arrive early if that worked for me! He spent a good 20 mins going over all my questions and educating me on some features in my car that I wasn't sure about. The work he performed exceeded my expectations and he was able to reset my computer! I'm thrilled to have found him and will definitely use I. The near future for any services needed. My fees for the work performed were over half what they would cost at Bmw, plus he removed a brake flush , said I didn't need when the dealer said I did!

Clarissa

Very happy. I booked a ball joint replacement that a tire store told me I needed. Clarissa checked and that was not really what the car needed; it needed a control arm bushing instead. I appreciate the honesty and saving me from work I did not need. Clarissa was easy to talk to and work with.
