Axle shaft transfer power from transaxle to driving wheels. All axle shafts consist of a shaft and flexible Constant Velocity (CV) joint at each end. Inner CV joint is splined or bolted to transaxle. Outer CV joint is splined to hub assembly and secured by axle shaft nut. The inner and outer CV joints are enclosed by a CV joint boot. The boot maintains lubrication in the joint and prevents contamination from entering the joint. Boots must be replaced when signs of leakage or cracks are present. The Inner CV joint can be repair without replacing assembly. The outer CV joint must be replace as an assembly. There are 3 different types of axle shaft CV joints. The Double Offset Joint (DOJ). The Brifield Joint (BJ) and the Tripod Joint (TJ), (sometimes referred as tripod).
