Is it safe to drive with broken axles?

What do axles and CV joints do?

The axles and CV joints are responsible for holding the weight of your vehicle and connecting your transmission gears to your wheels. This allows you to keep a constant speed while you turn. Front-wheel drive vehicles rely on these things to work properly.

Common issues with axles and CV joints:

  • Boot that contains grease gets torn, leaks grease, and fails to keep the joints lubricated. This will cause your axles to wear out over time.
  • Worn rollers and chipped or damaged bearings are another reason that axles might need maintenance.
