Stay safe on the road and replace your worn CV joints

Knock, knock, knock. That's not the sound of the courier with your latest online purchase but it could be the sound of worn and leaking CV joints as you turn corners in your car. The CV joints in your vehicles drivetrain are one of the weak points when it comes to excessive use and these can affect surrounding components when not properly maintained. Keep the running costs down on your vehicle and think about replacing both CV joints and CV boots when you can hear audible knocking or feel vibration when you drive.

Repco stock a wide range of quality replacement CV joints that have been manufactured to stand up to the harsh punishment these components endure and by replacing these will save on long term issues that can be costly. Most vehicles today whether they be front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all-wheel drive rely on driveshafts and constant velocity (CV) joints to transmit power to the wheels. With the range of motion these CV joints go through they are packed with high temperature grease and are encased in a tough rubber or neoprene boot to contain this grease. Over time and with the underside of our vehicles being subjected to all manner of heat, dirt, water and wear these boots can sometime split or separate from the CV joint they cover. From there it is only a matter of time before the grease runs out or becomes ineffective to the lubrication of the joint. Once this happens, the metal on metal contact between the drive shaft and the CV joint will eventually get louder and more pronounced especially as you turn corners and put your more load through these components. Eventually these components will fail and will contribute to a sizeable bill to fix this and get you back on the road.

Keep on top of any potential problems by visually checking these periodically and ensuring any signs of excess grease on components or tears in the boot will give you an indication bigger issues soon to be in play. Browse online and use our Rego search tool to find the right CV joint boot for your vehicle or come in store and chat to one of our friendly staff and keep your vehicle running its best.
