What are the symptoms of a bad CV joint and CV boot?

There are four main symptoms to look out for if you think your car has a bad CV joint and CV boot:

1. Excessive vibrations: if your rides have been bumpier lately, or they get bumpier as you speed up, this could be due to a faulty CV joint or CV damage. The more your car vibrates, the harder it can be to control.

2. Grease on the inside or edge of the tyres: grease on the inside or edge of the tyres is usually a sign that the CV boot has sprung a leak. This can result in damage to the CV joint, as it is no longer protected from wear-and-tear.

3. Knocking sounds: if you’re hearing knocking sounds while you’re out-and-about (especially when you’re reversing), this could mean that your CV joints are worn and/or damaged.

4. Clicking sounds: if you’re hearing clicking instead of knocking, this could be due to a loose CV joint – rather than worn or damaged joints – which is still important to get it double checked by your mycar mechanic.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is definitely time to have your CV joint and/or CV boot checked over and replaced.

How much does a CV joint replacement cost?

CV joint replacement costs $300 - $1000
CV boot replacement costs $100 - $400
 

Once you determine that your CV joint and/or boot needs to be replaced, the next important question is how much will it cost? Final price is dependent on the vehicle (brand, model and make), making a round number hard to predict. Use the above prices as a general guide only. If you would like to know more about CV joint and CV boot replacement costs, give your mycar mechanic a call for an upfront discussion.

Is it okay to drive with a torn CV boot?

While it is possible to drive with a torn CV boot, it’s not recommended. Doing so can cause further damage to both the CV boot and joint, resulting in extensive and expensive repairs. You can prevent a torn or damaged CV boot by making sure you have your car serviced at least once a year.

Can you replace a CV joint or CV boot yourself?

It is possible to replace a CV joint or CV boot yourself, especially if you have the mechanical know-how and proper tools – CV boots even come in kits! However, it is best to have them replaced by a professional with experience behind them.

What are CV Joints and CV Boots anyway?

CV (constant velocity) joints are found at the end of a drive shaft, connecting them to the car’s tyres. They transfer power to the tyres from the transmission, or in simpler terms, make sure that your wheels and car turn smoothly. CV boots are rubber cases that cover the joint and keep grease inside it and away from the shaft and tyres. CV joints and boots are crucial parts of your car, so if you have noticed any of the signs highlighted higher on this page, they may need to be replaced. If they do, mycar can help you.
