This is the first time I have used YourMechanic. The only complaint I have is that he was about an hour late. It took him longer than he expected - not 20 min. but about an hour. In this case that does not really matter, except that I would not have stayed with him at my car if I had known it would take about an hour rather than 20 minutes - I would have gone back to my office and let him call me when done. He seemed very knowledgeable and told me about the brake pads and what was and was not needed. I would request Kyle again.

All about CV Axle / Shaft Assembly Replacement

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.
