What are CV Joints & Boots?'CV' stand for 'constant velocity' and CV joints are those that allow a constant velocity to be maintained from shaft to shaft when those shafts are not in line with each other ie. the CV joint will transfer the force around corners. CV boots are flexible rubber socks or covers that protect the joints from the weather, water and dirt under the car as well as hold in the grease that keeps the joints lubricated.
How do you know they need to be replaced?A typical sign that your CV Boots need replacing is dark grease splattered on the inner side of your wheels. If your CV joints are affected you will often hear a clicking or popping sound as you turn corners whilst driving. However, you should get your CV boots inspected and replaced regularly to prevent them from breaking and potentially causing damage to the joints which is costly to fix.
