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.

Jeffrey

Very good technician. I'm an auto mechanic myself and have worked on most everything you can think of, but lacked the necessary tools for this job. I hired Jeffrey to take care of it for me and he did not disappoint. Quick and thorough, he went the extra mile to complete the job. I NEVER let anyone service my car but felt very comfortable with this guy. Highly recommended in my book.

Jose

My car was making an odd noise when turning. Jose arrived on time, chatted with me about what he was going to do, and got started while I went inside to finish some work. He texted me when he was nearly finished. When I met him outside he updated me on the car and let me know what I should expect in the future. The noise has entirely stopped and my car is driving better. Thank you so much!

Tim

I was very pleased with Tim Hutchins service. . very personable and professional guy. I was lucky he was the mechanic that came to fix my van. He bent over backwards, went overboard and beyond the call of duty to get the job done. There was a mistake in the parts that I provided and I started to panic because I thought we had just wasted the afternoon but he calmed me down, took his time to call around until we found a store that had it in stock and he took me in his car to make the exchange and get the right parts! And after getting the job done I expressed my gratitude for the trip to the store, he just smiled and said. . "It's all customer service, I am here to make sure that you are satisfied . . whatever it takes to get you going, that's what I am here for". What a guy!. I have some more stuff I need fixed in my van and I have already started discussing it with him. He is my go to guy from now on. Thanks Tim!
