CV JOINT TROUBLESHOOTING

frtaxlogo_large.jpg

When troubleshooting CV problems, there are three steps to the inspection; we provide a detailed explanation for each in the following paragraphs:

  • Road Testing
  • Visual Inspection 

ROAD TEST:

Check vehicle under all situations that may indicate a failure of CV components: acceleration, deceleration, coasting, soft and hard turns, figure 8's, constant speeds, and driving straight ahead. Listen for any of the following indicators:

Clicking or clunking noise when coasting, or at constant speed
* may indicate outer CV wear
* may indicate suspension/steering wear

Clicking noise on turns
* may indicate outer CV wear
* may indicate worn/damaged wheel bearings

Clunking noise in accel/deceleration, or on turns
* may indicate outer CV wear
* may indicate inner CV wear
* may indicate transaxle gear damage
* may indicate suspension/steering wear

Shudder or vibration at constant low speeds
* may indicate loose/damaged suspension parts
* may indicate worn inner CV component
* may indicate improperly torque axle nut
* may indicate out of balance tire

Shudder or shimmy during acceleration
* may indicate worn/sticking inner CV joint
* may indicate incorrect ride height
* may indicate worn/loose suspension parts

Shudder or vibration at constant highway speeds
* may indicate worn/loose suspension parts
* may indicate worn inner CV joint
* may indicate improperly torqued axle nut
* may indicate out of balance tire

VISUAL INSPECTION:

Carefully check all the components for possible wear.

Check CV boots for any seepage, cracks, or tears. Any loose of lubrication will result in irreparable damage, leading to the replacement of the driveaxle.

Check CV boots for type of material. Older rubber or neoprene boots allow contaminants inside even if there is not noticeable damage. Check for any type of dry-rot or stress-damage. Hard-plastic boots allow contamination without noticeable damage, due to their nature of being hard to seal. These types of boots should be replaced with a new boot kit, and components inspected for damage. Any wear or contamination will indicate the need for the replacement of the axle with a re-manufactured driveaxle.

Inspect the CV shaft for damage or wear. Shafts equipped with torsional dampeners often are loose under load, causing a vibration, and should be replaced with a solid shaft, as found with our re-manufactured shafts.

Check all suspension pieces for wear. Often worn suspension and steering items are misdiagnosed as CV problems.
