About CV boot
CV Boot is a drive-shaft component that acts as a brace for the CV joint that transmits the torque to the drive axles and wheels from the transmission. The CV boot stops a breaking axle when a rock is entering the vehicle and holds the wheels close and spinning. The CV boot allows the driving force of the axle to be expanded during transmission. It is a thin layer of rubber that covers the joint and retains the interior filled with dust, dirt, grain, and grease.
What is the purpose of CV boot?
The aim of CV boot is to retain the grease in the CV joints, to prevent contamination of the grease in the drive by road debris or dust and chemicals. It acts as a basic dust cover for the CV joint designed to keep out dust and dirt and hold in the grease that lubricates the CV contact.
How CV boot works?
The CV boot is commonly referred to as rubber boots that carry torque from the driveshaft to the wheels and allow the vehicle suspension system to move up and down without any bump. CV boot keeps the joints lubricated and prevents the joints from getting dirt and water. When the vehicle is driven on bumps, the grease is thrown out by centrifugal force as the axle rotates, and the joints become contaminated with sand, dirt, water from the rocks, and the joints are continuously worn. CV boot protects the joint from debris on the lane.
Where is CV boot located?
CV boot is found on both front-wheel and rear-wheel-drive cars as well as on trucks.
