Alex called before arriving, sent pictures (and video) of the work he was doing. More importantly, he showed me (video) a worn part that I would have no way of knowing about until it failed. Alex has worked on our vehicles repeatedly, has always been communicative about what he finds and let's me know what to look out for down the road. That type of mechanic trust is essential if you're maintaining older vehicles, vehicles outside of warranty, or - most importantly - vehicles that do a lot of road time. Pricing is competitive and the flexibility of doing the work wherever is most convenient to you is really a plus.
Alex really went above and beyond for me. He knew I needed to leave town and worked late to make sure that would happen and that I would be safe driving. Even drove across town to pick up a part during evening rush hour! He took the time to explain the issues and potential dangers and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him, his work ethic is outstanding.

Anthony was very professional and approachable. He maintained communication from beginning to end. There are 2 reasons why this is not a 5-star review. The first one is because he had to reschedule the original time of my appointment, luckily I was able to accommodate his request (I believe it was due to a glitch in their system?). The second one is because he wasn’t able to complete the job as booked due to having the wrong parts (the parts were requested correctly, but issued a different one?). Overall, I was satisfied with the service and most likely will use it again.

Very knowledgeable and took the time to explain why the axle slipped out. I will be using him again. He was quick and professional and after a bad experience with a mobile mechanic through another company, I am happy to say I have faith in mobile mechanics again.

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!

Very straightforward, and kept me updated with the cost and everything. Fixed my problem in the time he said he would. Exactly what I was looking for when I needed help. I would easily have him come out again for a different issue

CV Axle / Shaft Assembly Replacement Service

What are CV Axles and how do they work?

All front wheel drive and all wheel drive cars use CV axles. “CV” is short for constant velocity. You have your engine and transmission in the car. Which are mounted to the body of the car and cannot move up and down with the suspension. [AB2] Then you have the suspension and wheels on the car, which can go up and down to absorb bumps and on the front of the car, steer. The CV axle is a shaft that has two constant velocity joints at either end of it. One end comes out of the transmission, the other end mounts in the wheel hub. The two joints let the axle continue to spin as the suspension travels up and down and you steer the car. An fwd car will have one for both the passenger side and driver’s side. An AWD car will have the same, but additionally two in the rear of the car. Each of the CV joints is covered by a rubber accordion looking boot that holds the grease in and keeps dirt and water out. Because of mileage, environment, and just wear and tear these boots can rip. When they rip, grease escapes, dirt, and water get into the CV joint and can make it wear out. This will often cause a clicking noise from the front of the car while turning.

When to replace your CV axles.

There is no set interval for changing CV axles. They simply wear out over time and unless you have your car regularly inspected by a mechanic you may not know that they have torn boots.

  • You hear a clicking sound when turning while driving from the front of the vehicle
  • You notice lots of heavy black axle grease inside of your wheel or on the ground around your car.
  • Vibration at highway speeds.

How mechanics replace CV axles.

The mechanic will:

  • Verify the axle shaft needs to be replaced.
  • Remove wheel and replace the faulty axle.
  • Torque all fasteners and wheels to factory specifications.
  • Top off any lost transmission fluid
  • Check tire pressure.
  • Perform a road test.

Is it safe to drive with a worn out CV axle?

For a very short period, yes you can. However, over time, you run the risk of having the CV break and leaving you stranded. The CV axle is the only thing that transmits power from your engine and transmission to the wheels. It’s vital to keep you on the road.

When replacing cv axles 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.
  • CV axles in climates that have snow and use road salt can seize to the vehicle’s wheel bearing hub. It may require extra parts or labor to replace the CV axle.
