Carlos

Carlos is a great mechanic, who is hard working and knows how to get the job done. He showed up on time every time for every appointment he had with me. My CV axle was stuck in the transmission and with many attempts and tedious hours, he managed to remove and replace my axle. I would request him again for future appointments and would recommend him to family and friends. He's done a great job and I am a satisfied customer!

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.
