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.

Honorio

My experience was dreadful and I am intending to YELP loudly. I scheduled my first appointment and one hour before Honorio was to arrive it was canceled because previous work took longer than expected. That should have been a red flag for me. Honorio is a good man but had no idea how to fix my drive door window. He was continually checked Youtube to guide him. He ended up bending the regulator (confirmed by the General Tire and Auto mechanics who fixed my driver door window) and his wife had to bring a spare one. He could not install it the regulator. He arrived two hours early and after 5 hours nothing was accomplished. He removed both the inner door and out drive door panels. When he attempted to reattach the outer door panel he left the door rivet inside the cavity of the door. When my son-in-law and I pointed that out to him he stated that there was no rivet, even after we showed him the one on the passenger side. We closed the driver side door several times so he could hear the rivet inside the panel bouncing around. I initially was going to keep the "new" motor, which is still in its box after Honorio removed it and put back in the original motor. I was told by your phone representative that Honorio (or his wife) would pick it up. They didnot pick it up and you charged me $73 for a new motor that you removed from the door. If you refund my money and pick up the motor I will refrain from YELPing. If you refund my money and pick up the motor I will not forward this email to the Bureau of Automotive Repair and just call it a bad day for all. Godspeed, Tom.

Oscar was very diligent in his work. Both during and afterwards he explained what he was doing and the issues he saw. He spoke clearly and gave a great summary at the end of his inspection to recap all that we had talked about. Great Work! Thanks!
