CV Boots Replace
Updated: May 3
CV boot are subject to wear and mechanical damage. Over time, the seams may break. Usually, the CV boot is destroyed on the outside closest to the wheels. In most cases, damage occurs when driving in snow and on gravel roads.
Regular inspection of the CV boot is necessary as it is possible to detect small cracks or fissures before the CV joint is destroyed. While larger punctures will cause a visible spray of dark-colored lubricant, catching the problem sooner rather than later means that you will be able to escape by replacing only the CV boot itself. A brand new CV connection is a much more expensive part to replace if the problem is ignored.
