Fullerton CV Boot Repair
When thinking about auto maintenance like a tune-up, alignments, brake jobs or oil change most drivers in Fullerton think about their constant velocity boot and or better as its better know the CV boot. The CV boot is a small rubber encasement that covers the CV joint and keeps grease packed inside. A damaged CV boot can exposed your CV joint and will begin to fail over time. The CV Joint essentially keeps your axle from breaking when you hit a bump, and keeps your wheels aligned and turning. There are actually two of them on an axle: one at the transmission and one at the wheel. They allow for all types of movement and any odd angles required as you move over the road, and as such, the joint must always be well-lubricated.
Because CV boots are prone to tearing, either by road debris or age, CV Boots need to be regularly inspected. Thankfully, Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton’s certified ASE technicians always inspect your vehicle, including the CV Boots every time you come in for service. But if your CV boots are damaged and ignored grease will leak out and contaminants like water and damaging particles will find their way in. Additionally, with less lubrication and more water, you’ll start to build rust, which will quickly destroy the joint. A broken CV joint is a critical failure that will render the car undriveable, so if you’re not visiting Orozco’s Auto Service keep an eye on your CV boot and get it replaced as soon as possible if you notice any damage. If by any chance your vehicle does gets to this point here are a few warning signs that you have a problem: grease splattered on the inside of the wheel, visible damage or vibration while driving. If you get a serious vibration or you hear a noticeable clicking or popping when you turn, you are already too late and should immediately visit Orozco’s Auto Service and get the entire CV axle replaced along with new CV boots.
