Subaru CV Axle Replacement Service Information in Columbus, OH
CV Axle Replacement Service at Byers Airport Subaru in Columbus, OH
A failed CV axle will cause your car to handle poorly, give you an uncomfortable ride and can even compromise your ability to safely control it. When a CV axle fails, you’re likely to notice a few symptoms — most notably, a tell-tale clicking noise when turning. If you notice intense vibrations as you drive along, grease collecting on the inside edge of your tires or a loud, repetitive, percussive clicking noise coming from the wheels as you turn, the CV axle is almost certainly to blame. Luckily, a full CV axle replacement isn’t an unusual procedure for the technicians at the Byers Airport Subaru service department. By simply replacing the entire axle, we’ll get your car driving down the road smoothly, safely and quietly. The way it’s supposed to feel. After all, you shouldn’t settle for anything less from your Subaru!
What is a CV Axle & Why Does It Go Bad?
The “CV” in CV axle stands for “constant velocity.” The constant velocity axle is specially designed to deliver power from the engine to the front wheels while also allowing the wheels to turn, so you can steer the same wheels that are getting engine power. This is accomplished using a complex joint. To protect the joint, it’s wrapped in a rubber cover called a boot, and the boot is packed with lubricating grease. Over time, road debris and general wear and tear can cause the boot to tear, and let the grease seep out. Once the lubricating grease has completely oozed out of the boot, the joint won’t be protected. Metal parts will grind against one another and you’ll begin to hear the clicking noise we talked about above. Once this has happened, it’s usually necessary to just replace the entire axle.
