Auto Axles

Just like the other major components in your vehicle, the axles occasionally need attention and servicing to help you stay safe on the road. Regular maintenance can prolong their life, but axles eventually need to be repaired or replaced.

Regular maintenance for your vehicles axles include cleaning and lubrication of the axle, shaft, CV boot and seals. But with age and miles, these parts may wear out and leave your vehicle at risk for bigger issues.

From leaking seals to gear damage, small problems with the axles can mean big issues for your vehicle. Unfortunately, there is no warning light to easily identify this issue. Instead, you may notice strange noises.

Clunking and groaning, especially when turning, signal a problem with the vehicle’s axles. At the first sign of an issue, bring your vehicle to Melton Automotive!
