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.

Because of the way my car died I was scared of how much it would cost to repair it and I was frightened to drive my car in case it happened again. I was thinking I might have to give up driving and take the bus. Jason came already prepared and familiar with the make and model of my car. He listened to my description of what happened and was genuinely concerned. If it was the alternator, replacing the battery wouldn't help. He tested the alternator first. I was relieved to learn the alternator was fine. Since the battery is located behind the tire, he showed me the wear on the brake pads and he said he would email me a quote for it but that I had time to budget for that repair. Jason educated me about the make and model of my car and what probably happened to the battery so that I have a greater appreciation now for my own car. Because Jason is an experienced, certified professional mechanic, I can drive my car now with confidence. Because Jason was honest and didn't use high pressure sales tactics, I can afford to keep driving and plan ahead to budget for future maintenance and repairs. I trust Jason and highly recommend him to anyone.
