Drive Shaft and CV Joint car parts - all important information about operating method, mounting, diagnostics and service life

Drive wheel of a vehicle powertrain is a structure which transmits torque directly to the wheels and provides their rotation. Features of the drive wheel and its characteristics depend on what wheels receive the torque.

Types of drive wheel systems
  • rear-wheel drive;
  • front-wheel drive;
  • four-wheel drive:
    • Classic with a transfer case;
    • on the basis of front wheel drive;
    • with rear engine design.
Drive wheel structure
  • drive shaft;
  • constant velocity joint:
    • snap and thrust rings;
    • flanges;
    • 6 balls;
    • separator.
Tips for exploitation of vehicles with different types of drive wheel
  1. When driving a rear wheel drive car it is necessary to avoid a wheelspin. This can cause uncontrolled skidding.
  2. A front-drive car requires a smooth start of the movement. Excessive loading of the drive wheels can cause premature wear of velocity joints.
  3. Driving all-wheel drive car requires more attention in high-speed cornering. Different directions of wheel traction at maneuvering can cause uncontrolled skidding.
  4. In case of skidding the cars with different drive wheel types require completely different action algorithms. Driving the front wheel drive car it is necessary to increase traction by pressing the gas pedal. In such conditions the rear wheel drive system requires releasing of gas pedal. In case of skidding the four-wheel drive vehicle requires precisely dosed traction or complete release of the gas pedal and its pressing without interval.
Drive wheel failure
  • damage or wear of drive housing;
  • failure of constant velocity joints;
  • mechanical damage or deformation of the drive shafts.
Signs of drive wheel failure
  • jerks at the start of the movement from the place;
  • extraneous sounds in joints;
  • oil stains under the constant velocity joint while downtime of the vehicle;
  • beat or vibration of the drive shaft;
  • visual damage and deformation of the drive shafts;
  • free position of the drive shaft between the joints.
Causes of the drive wheel failute
  • use of low-quality constant velocity joints and lubricants;
  • loosening of axle fasteners and constant velocity joints;
  • wear of joints;
  • lack or insufficient amount of lubricant in the system;
  • mechanical damage or wear of duster;
  • getting of dust, dirt and foreign objects into joints;
  • low quality of the road surface;
  • aggressive driving style.
Repair and replacement of drive wheel

It is necessary to remember that repairs are not carried out if there is a constant velocity joints failure. You only have to replace them. The entire mechanism of the constant velocity joint has to be changed entirely, because its components match exactly to each other. If you need to replace the joint balls it is necessary to replace the whole set of 6 pieces.

Drive wheel repair should be carried out only by professional mechanics. It requires special knowledge and special tools, including car lift.

Out of all drive wheel components only housing can be replaced in case of damage. In this situation you have to clean the joint and fill the oil. In case of drive shafts deformation it is strictly prohibited to continue their usage.

Drive wheel system diagnostics should be carried out after mileage of 70 000-80 000 kilometers. It is recommended to do diagnostics after 50,000 kilometers mileage if you have an aggressive driving style or frequently drive off-road. Diagnosis is carried out on the stand using a computer. The condition of constant velocity joints, snap and thrust rings and drive shafts rotation are evaluated. After accident or mechanical damage it is recommended to carry out the complete replacement of the drive.
