1 Answer:
  • Vivian Lim
    Yes, the transmission "end" of the left side axle is completely different from the transmission "end" on the right side. Consequently, the two axles are not interchangeable and that applies to both automatic and manual transmission versions of this vehicle.8 ene 2017
  • Can you drive with a broken CV axle?

    If the CV joint gets corrupted or contamination takes place, then the lubricant will leak. A boot seals the CV, and this boot is not resistant to damage. Whenever this happens, the joint will wear out and fail. If you drive a car with a damaged CV, the joint will deteriorate more, making driving impossible.23 ago 2021

  • What vehicles still have solid front axles?

    Even though we are now down to just three new vehicle models available with a solid front axle in the U.S.—Jeep Wrangler, Ford Super Duty, and Ram heavy-duty trucks (four if you count the über-expensive Mercedes G-class)—we're still huge proponents of the driven beam axle construction for off-road use.1 may 2012
  • What is the difference between CV axle and CV joint?

    A CV joint is a joint in a drive axle (or at the end of it) which allows torque to be transmitted through a varying angle - for example, front wheel drive where the front wheels both steer and drive the car. An axle is a straight shaft, a CV joint is a JOINT.
