Q: I think my front axel needs replacement

asked by on

Car felt like it had a ball in tire I checked under the car and I saw the boot of the axel little torn and I think that's the problem

My car has 9100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It could be that you need to replace an axle, but don’t stop looking at the tires yet. Axles usually manifest with a popping noise on sharp turns before they get so bad that they can be felt in the steering. It would be a good idea to get the car off of the ground and spin the tires, inspecting the the tread and sidewalls for any apparent defect. Of course if you have a broken boot on your axle, the boot needs to be replaced.But It might pay too have a professional check it out to be sure if you need any more than that. Contact Your Mechanic to have a technician come out to your home or office to check out your BMW and let you know what its going to take to fix it.
