A CV joint, also known as a constant velocity joint, connects the wheels of your car to the gears. It can sometimes fail due to a loss of lubrication or even wear and tear. Loss of lubrication is much more common and is usually a result of the boot leaking grease. The result is usually that the whole axle shaft will need to be replaced. This is often the most cost-effective method of dealing with CV joint issues.
