CV Axle Replacement and Repair Service at Carlsen Subaru serving San Francisco, CA

Common Auto Services at Carlsen Subaru: CV Axle Replacement and Repair

Get your CV axle repaired at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City, CA

In order for cars with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive to deliver power to the front wheels, they're equipped with CV axles. And since virtually every new Subaru comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, that means virtually every new Subaru has CV axles. While there's no reason your CV axles won't last the entire life of your car, they're protected by rubber covers filled with grease, called boots. If these boots rupture, whether from overuse or from contact with road debris, they'll leak grease and your CV axle won't be properly lubricated. This leads to some seriously unpleasant noises and driving sensations! If your front axle has started making loud clicking noises, a failed CV axle is probably to blame. Stop by our service center for a replacement or repair today!

What is the CV Axle on my Subaru and Why Must it Be Replaced?

The CV axle features a sophisticated joint, called a Constant Velocity Joint, from which the CV axle gets its name. This joint allows the wheels to both turn side to side when steering as well as travel up and down along bumps and potholes, all while rotating at a constant velocity. If this joint begins to fail, you're likely to hear a loud clicking or knocking noise coming from the axle. That means it's time to get this axle replaced. If it completely fails, you'll be stuck with a broken axle, and that means you're not going anywhere anytime soon.
