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.

    I've been using instamek for both diagnostic and maintenance and the instamek mechanic Mohamed has been extremely helpful, he's the best mechanic. He was able to explain any issues i was concerned with and I'm really happy to have him service my car. I recommend him to anyone.

    Battery died so couldn't get the car into the shop. Got a quote online and had an appointment quickly. Mechanic was friendly & professional, checked what needed to be checked and more. Would absolutely recommend.

    I wanted to get a pre-purchase inspection of a vehicle I was interested in purchasing from a private seller on Craigslist. I was able to book an appointment on the same day I called, which was very convenient. The mechanic who came out, Waheed, was very professional and friendly. He did an extremely thorough inspection of the car and clearly explained what some of the issues that he was seeing... were as he went. You get a very detailed report as a result of the inspection which allowed me to negotiate the offering price down quite significantly. It was definitely worth it and I would recommend this service to anyone looking to buy a used car. I should note that the pre-purchase inspection typically includes a driving segment, but the mechanic cannot do it if the car is not insured (for obvious reasons). I didn't realize this when I booked over the phone, and I was comfortable with just a visual inspection given the age/condition of the car in question, but if you are particularly worried about the car's transmission or steering I would make sure it is insured so that the mechanic can come and do this part of the inspection.read more

    My truck wouldn't start, and I knew it wasn't the battery. Booked an appointment online and the mechanic showed up quickly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and correctly, gave a fair quote right on the spot and explained everything. My starter was replaced and I'm back in business. I can't recommend highly enough. Also, definitely go for Instamek PRIME. It got me a good discount on my repair... and now I get maintenance service calls, and roadside assistance.read more

    Mek Waheed and his mechanic partner were excellent. Very friendly, and much more thorough than my last inspection, which was at a shop with a lift! They spent time with me afterwards explaining things in detail. Would definitely recommend this service.

    So happy we discovered this company! I was scared to drive my car to the shop after hearing weird noises and within 2 days they ran the diagnostic and replaced by rotors and brake pads. And since they don’t have the overhead of a normal shop it came out to way less than we feared! Signed up for their membership program which is a great deal too. Thanks again Jack and Instamek, I’ll be... recommending you to everyone!!read more
