CV Joints

Warning signs

It is typical for vehicles that have travelled more than 80,000 miles. The boots are made from rubber which means over the years and the distance travelled, it will take quite a bit of abuse due to the high amount of heat they are exposed to. Inside the rubber, is the grease which will also dry over time, leaving them brittle and causing it to easily break. At Kristol automotive, our safety inspections report are free. Call us now to make a booking.


What should you do?

If caught early, this can be repaired for as little as $110 (prices vary based on makes and models). We can easily replace the boot and set new grease so that you have little to worry about. If ignored, you might start to notice the following:

Clicking noise when turning a corner, right or left.
Noises when driving the car straight. If you start to notice this, you must stop driving immediately for your safety and the others around you.
