CV Joints or constant velocity joints are joints that connects the drive shafts to the wheels, when these go wrong or break, the usual thing you will notice is hearing noises when turning the car or when you hit the gas when you turn the car. The noise is like knocking or clicking noise and you can really tell that it is not normal!
My husband’s car actually had this problem over a year ago and was very lucky to have it quickly resolved by a CV Joint Repair specialist. The thing is, if the problem was left or disregarded, the wear of the CV joint gets worst and noises would be a lot louder. Leave it unrepaired for a few weeks and it could leads to structural damage of the car, so it is very important to have it checked properly by a specialist!
There are loads of car repair shop that does this type of job, some would even do Metal Fabrication themselves for making axles and other metals; just do not know how much they are charging. But if you are located in New Zealand, there is one you can find at Wigram Christchurch which offers CV Specs for CV Joint Repair at a very reasonable price!
