Frequently asked questions
+

What is an Axle?

On your car, the axle is the tube that your wheels fit onto, so that they can rotate smoothly. Between the wheels and the axle is a 'bearing'. As well as supporting the car's weight, the axle absorbs braking and cornering forces.
+

What are common Axle problems?

The axle itself is extremely solid and unlikely to need attention. However associated components can wear, including: CV ('Constant Velocity') joints, regulating wheel speed as you turn a corner and bearings, which allow smooth rotation of wheels around an axle.
+

What is an Axle Repair Bearing?

Over time, the bearing between your car's axle and wheels (which works by using a set of rollers between the two components for smooth rotation) can wear out. A repair bearing is the replacement for the worn bearing component.
+

How can Axles be repaired?

As the Axle itself is unlkely to wear significantly, repair usually involves replacement of bearings or Constant-Velocity (CV) Joints.
+

What does Axle Repairs cost?

A wheel bearing or CV Joint can be replaced from under £100. However, price varies due to part price, accessibility of the worn component and the like. Post your job and you'll see a range of quotes near you.

Axle Repairs near me

If your car is suffering from axle problems and you need a repair, you have come to the prefect place! Whether you need a new CV joint fitted, CV shaft repaired, front axle repair or rear axle repair, we can help!

What is a car axle and what does a car axle do?

The car axles on your vehicle connect and distribute power to the form and rear wheels of the car from the engine. Obviously, if something is wrong with your car axles, there is going to be an issue. The axles are moving parts which rotate when the car is in motion which means they need to be in checked during a service to ensure they are fully operational.

Car axle problems

If an axle gets bent, which can happen when a car suffers from an impact, it will cause the car to jostle and vibrate. If this happens, the problem will get worse as the car moves faster.

The driveshaft is a prat that rapidly spins and transfers engine power to the rear axles and wheels in rear-wheel drive vehicles and will also cause shaking or vibrating if it is bent.

Worn-out constant velocity (CV) joints fall under the same category. If the "boots" -- those rubber, accordion-like coverings around the ends of the drive axles -- are intact, clamps are secure, and no lubricant is seeping out, chances are they're not the problem. But if the boots are torn, that means dirt and dust and road filth is getting in and damaging the joints. For front-wheel drive cars, toasted CV joints mean you'll be buying new drive axles.

CV Joint repair

CV joints act like the joints in a body, but a little more complex. Their primary function is to connect the axles to the front wheels of a car.

All front-wheel drive cars are fitted with constant velocity joints or CV joints on both ends of the drive shafts or half shafts.

The CV joints in a car are critical for transferring the torque from the transmission at a stable speed while also handling the up and down motion of the car suspension.

CV joint problems

CV joints are highly robust and it would not be uncommon to see a car run for over 300,000 miles without a problem. The most likely reason for one to cause problems would be an impact cracking the part and causing grease to leak out.

The CV joint is cased inside a protective boot which retains the grease which allows the joint to rotate smoothly and without friction, however, if the protective boot is damaged and a crack opens up, the grease is likely to leak out.

This will inevitably cause problems as moisture and dirt can get at the CV joint and wear the part down.

Signs of a damaged CV joint or a worn down CV joint

If you ever spot dark grease gathering on the inside of your car wheel rim, there is likely to be a leak in the CV joint. If this is the case, you need to have to problem inspected as soon as possible. If the crack in the protective boot has happened relatively recently, the CV joint may not be too badly damaged and a reasonable repair can be made. However, if you decide to ignore the issue, the CV joint will wear out and fail, making the cost of repair much higher.

You will be able to tell if the CV joint is in trouble if you hear a clicking or popping noise when you make a turn while driving.

CV joint repair cost

The cost of a CV joint repair will depend on the severity of the damage, like almost every type of car problem. If you need to replace the CV joint, the part itself it is not too expensive, however, because the work to remove it is so intensive, the cost of labour will most likely represent the largest percentage of the final bill.
