The constant velocity (CV) joint connects a car’s half axel to the wheel and allows the wheels to move freely. This CV joint allows the shaft to rotate, transmitting power at a constant speed, without a significant increase in friction and heat. CV joints are usually dependable, but, as is the case for all of your vehicle’s moving equipment, they do require regular inspection.
An easy way for you to tell if you need to see us for a repair is to go out to a large space (such as a car park), and slowly drive in tight circles. If you hear a clicking or cracking noise, you have a worn joint, and it must be repaired immediately.
