CV Boot Replacement Service

How much does a CV Boot Replacement cost?

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

What is a CV boot?

The constant velocity (CV) joint sends power from the transmission to the wheels (typically the front wheels). The CV boot is a flexible rubber boot that protects the joint, preventing water and dirt out of the joint, and keep grease inside of the CV joint.

Signs of a bad CV boot

  • A grease leak Grease leaks are the most common symptoms of a damaged CV boot. With time, the rubber CV boot gets dry or breakable and ends up cracking or tearing. Holes in the CV boot can cause the grease within the boot to leak on the inside of the wheel. It’s also quite common for the grease to get flung onto the chassis or other parts of the bottom of the car as the CV axle turns.
  • Vibrations Another signs of a damaged CV boot is vibrating coming from under your car close to your wheels. SInce a broken boot can enable dirt, debris, and moisture to go into the CV joint, there may be damage to the CV joint as well which causes can cause vibrations. If you are experiencing vibrations, this usually means that your CV axle will also need to be replacing.
  • Car clicks during turns If the CV axle gets damaged as a consequence of a torn CV boot, it is likely that you’ll hear clicking sounds. Clicking sounds during turning is the sign of a serious problem, as it indicates that the CV joint has become loose. A clicking CV joint will need to be replaced since at that point, it’s usually past the point of being salvageable.

How to replace a bad CV boot

  • The mechanic verifies that the CV Boot needs to be changed. To do that, the car is elevated and sustained on jack stands and the wheel is gotten rid of.
  • The malfunctioning CV Boot is eliminated by taking off the axle as well as dismantling it to change the boot and tidy up the joint.
  • The brand-new CV Boot is set up by loading the joint with CV oil, reconstructing the axle, and attaching the brand-new boot.
  • The CV Boot is examined for procedure and the axle is reinstalled onto the car. The tire is mounted and the car is eliminated from the jack stands.
  • The car is tested on the road to guarantee correct procedure of the CV Boot as well as the axle.
  • Is it safe to drive with CV boot problems?

    It is possible to drive a vehicle with a torn CV boot, however, doing so will likely result in more damages that will ultimately need a lot more substantial repair work.

    Needed a Pre-Purchase inspection done on a vehicle in somewhat short notice and with a hesitation from the small dealer to have us tie up one of their plates in taking the car to a brick and motor service location for a day. Enter Instamek.Able to make all the arrangement required including identifying who to contact at dealership. Got a confirmation email with the time window and let dealer know. Mek arrived on time and did what they needed to do with no muss and no fuss. Got the report an hour later with images of things to note from their inspection and a complete list of pass, monitor, and required things in regards to the vehicle.everything was coordinated by email and text and it did not require me to be onsite which was nice as schedule didn't permit.All in all... a very good experience and would HIGHLY recommend. You do pay a bit more for the convenience but it was worth it in this case.read more

    I recently got my brakes changed through instamek and had an awesome experience. The mechanic was prompt, friendly and professional. The best part was that I didn’t have to leave my house and was able to work from home and not take any time out of my day to go to the shop. I would highly recommend this service!

    I contacted instaMek to take a look at my car that wouldn't start. Mohamed came to do a diagnosis - he was prompt, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Moe was able to get a replacement part right away and complete the repair on the same day. Not only is it convenient to have a mechanic come to you, but the service was great from the booking stage right through to the completion of the work. The text messages letting you know when the Mek is on the way, and the job reports provide the value-add. Highly recommended!read more
