Seattle Subaru Half shaft Repair and Replacement Service at Carter Subaru Ballard

We don't do anything by half measures here at the Carter Subaru Ballard service center. We strive to do every job 100% right 100% of the time. That said, your car may one day need half an axle.

A half shaft (sometimes written as "halfshaft" and perhaps better known as a CV axle) connects your car's front wheels to the differential. It delivers power from the engine to the wheel, and also has a degree of articulation for steering purposes. This requires a complex joint that can fail over time!

How do you know when your half shaft is starting to fail? You may notice a loud, repetitive clicking noise coming from the axle, especially when turning. Visit Carter Subaru Ballard to get this important component checked out right away.

What Causes a Subaru Half Shaft to Break?

A CV joint allows the half shaft to do its thing: drive the front wheels while also allowing them some motion for steering. For smooth operation, it's sealed with oil and protected with a rubber cover called a boot. If that boot tears, the lubricating oil inside will slowly seep out. When there's no lubrication to smooth the movement of the joint, the axle will start to click loudly! This tells you your half shaft has failed, and you'll need a new one soon. Left unaddressed, an unlubricated CV joint could fail entirely -- severing your engine's connection to the wheels and leaving you stranded.
