The constant velocity joint—known as the CV joint—is a simple
piece of machinery with a very important task. Read this article to find
out which symptoms are indicative of a CV joint that is about to fail.
If you think you may have a bad CV joint, visit a
transmission shop near San Jose that performs CV axle repair.
Unusual Vibration and Noises
Driving on a freshly paved road can help you determine whether the CV joint
is bad. If you feel a bouncing sensation as you drive, there’s a
chance that you have a bad CV joint. Visit a transmission repair shop
to determine if the problem is the CV joint or something else.
Wear and Tear
It’s normal for the metal bearings inside of older CV joints to wear
away. Over time, bearing wear and tear opens up clearance between the
bearing portions. Unfortunately, this causes the bearings to hammer together,
which wears out the CV joints until they eventually fail.
Inner and Outer Joint Problems
The inner CV joint and outer CV joint serve different functions. If the
inner CV joint is failing, you will notice a shuddering, clunking, or
vibration when the car is accelerating or decelerating. If the outer CV
joint is failing, it will click and pop—you may even be able to
feel this happening through the floor or the wheel. You’ll need
to visit a transmission repair shop for transmission work.
For all your service and repair needs, we are here to help.
