    CV Boot Split – Repairs in Hamilton NZ

    About CV joints and boots:

    A leaking CV boot will cause a lack of lubrication around the CV joint.

    The constant velocity (or CV) joints are an important part of the steering and suspension system on all front-wheel drive vehicles. The inner CV joints connect the driveshaft do the transmission, while the outer CV joints connect the driveshaft to the wheels. These joints allow for a correct and constant transfer of torque between the transmission and the wheels. In order to function correctly, the CV joint needs to be sealed within a boot. The CV Boot is a ribbed, rubber flexible boot that keeps water and dirt out of the joint. It also keeps grease inside, which lubricates the CV joint and allows it to function properly.

    A leaking or damaged CV boot will cause the CV joint to wear prematurely due to a lack of lubrication and damage from contaminants. For this reason, it is important that the CV boot is replaced when necessary.

    How does the CV axle work?

     

    Symptoms of a split CV boot:

    Leaking of grease – If the CV boot is split, grease will begin to leak out around the inside edges of your tyres and onto the ground.

    Visible damage to CV boot  If you feel confident enough to inspect the CV boot yourself, look for visible tears and cracks.

    Clicking noises while turning – If your CV boot has been split or damaged for a while, your CV joint may start to fail. This usually causes loud clicking noises while turning left or right, especially at higher speeds. It can also lead to noticeable vibrations while driving.
