WHAT IS AN AXLE SHAFTS ON A CAR?

An axle shaft is also known as half shaft or cv axles .The shafts that link the transaxle to the powered wheels are known as axle shafts in front-wheel drive cars. Some rear-wheel drive automobiles with independent suspensions additionally have axle shafts to link the differential assembly to the powered wheels. In order to accommodate suspension movement, axle shafts frequently include universal joints at each end. Constant velocity joints are utilised in front-wheel drive systems to provide smooth power delivery and enable steering wheel rotation.

WHAT IS AN AXLE SHAFTS ON A CAR?

Drive axles, which link a vehicle’s transmission to its wheels, are essential powertrain elements. The primary mechanism for transferring the rotational force and power from the transmission to move the vehicle is the axle shaft. The wheels connected to the axle shaft revolve as a result of the transmission’s force. A differential exists between each axle shaft’s two half-axles and its two universal (UV) joints.

Axle shafts ultimately enable rolling of vehicles and regulated wheel movement. Without dependable drive shafts, the vehicle’s wheels wouldn’t move at all or in an appropriate manner.

TYPE OF AXLE SHAFTS

There are 3 type of Axle Shafts

Semi-floating Axle Shafts: The axle shaft features flange faces on both of its outer ends in this design. These faces screw right onto the corresponding wheels.

Fully Floating Axle Shafts: Axles are positioned in-between the two elements of this type of axle shaft. Each wheel is connected to a hub, which is rotated by spindles at the ends of the axle shaft that are supported by roller bearings. The hubs and bearings support the weight of the vehicle to relieve pressure on the axle bearing. The roller bearings are tapered and face opposite directions.

Three Quarter Axle Shafts: Both semi-floating and completely floating axle shaft designs include elements in these shafts. Between the hub axle shaft and the axle casing are where the bearings are located on three-quarter floating axle shafts.

HOW TO KNOW YOU NEED TO  REPLACE CV AXLE/ HALF SHAFTS?

SYMPTOMS OF BROKEN OR BAD AXLE SHAFTS

1. When turning “Clicking” Noise: This noise is distinctive once you hear it, despite the fact that it has been described as both a loud click and a pop. The loose joints of a worn CV axle are what cause it to manifest itself when you turn the car.

2. Sounds like Knocking: Keep an ear out for any rhythmic hammering or clunking sounds. Although the CV axle isn’t always to blame, none of the other possible explanations are good ones, necessitating an urgent evaluation.

3. While driving vibration: The CV axle may be to blame if the vibrations are extreme, get worse with speed, or make your driving feel especially “bouncy.”

4. Inside or Edge on the tire grease will be there: In order to prevent leaks, the CV axle joint features boots that hold grease as the axle spins. If the boot begins to leak, the lack of lubrication that results might quickly cause the CV joint to fail.
