Audi Axles Parts
Audi is an honorable automobile brand that is known worldwide for creating some of the best vehicles straight from their headquarters, in Germany. Audi’s high levels of standards are established into all of their vehicles and products, even in their axle parts and components. You Audi’s axle is a major part of your vehicle, which permits it to turn and use motion. It is created to grasp the wheels together and correct when the steering wheel is in motion to help to control your Audi in the direction you want to move. Your vehicle’s axle consists of many parts, so if you are noticing any unusual sounds and or driving changes that you can feel, these are warning signs of axle issues. Abnormal sounds are a symptom of an axle issue. Pay attention in order to better find the type of sound your Audi is emitting and whether it happens all the time or only through turning. Clunks or knocks through a turn can also be a symptom of an issue with your axle bearings. If the sound is becoming louder as you are turning your wheel, this indicates that small balls are loose and in free motion on the interior of the bearing. In this case a new bearing, instead of a new axle, will resolve this issue. "Feel" is another way to troubleshoot your Audi’s axle trouble. If there is tension on your steering wheel when turning, this could be a signal of a faulty axle. Slight tension that loosens and tightens through a turn highlights a lubrication leak. Axle lubrication keeps the axle from locking up with the knuckle when you are going through turns. You should find out whether there is a leak or if the lubrication is at a lower than normal level. Fix this issue quickly, before a complete axle replacement is required. FCP Euro has vast catalog of Audi axle parts and components, as well as all of your Audi’s general parts.

Another great way to troubleshoot your Audi’s axle is to rotate your steering wheel all the way to the left or right and then check behind the tires. There will be two boots, one on either side of the axle, that look similar to an accordion, called the CV boots. If they are ripped, then your axle has to be replaced. Keep an ear out for any clicking noises when you take corners in your Audi. If you are turning left or right while driving and start to hear click noises, this means either one or both of your axles is about to break.
