BMW CV Boot
The BMW CV boot is very important component in the front-end of your vehicle. The BMW CV boot is built to support the proper function of the constant velocity joint that is a major component in the transfer of power from the engine to the drive wheels of the vehicle. The vehicle cannot move without the CV joint, and without the protection of the BMW CV boot the CV joint would quickly fail. The BMW CV boot is a rubber boot packed with grease that surrounds the CV joint, sealing and protecting it from dirt and debris from the road. The CV joint is easily damaged by contamination of abrasive dirt and debris, which will cause failure. The BMW CV boot is located at each end of the vehicle axle assembly, two per axle. A front-wheel drive vehicle will have four CV joints, each with its own BMW CV boot for protection. A vehicle that is equipped with four-wheel drive will have twice that many. The BMW CV boot can become cracked over time, with wear and the elements taking a toll. If the BMW CV boot breaks open, the protective grease can be lost, leaving the CV joint vulnerable to contamination and failure. The BMW CV boot should be checked regularly for wear or damage to avoid contamination of the CCV joint. Developing the habit of giving the BMW CV boot a quick inspection when you change the oil is a great way to avoid the expense of a failed CV joint.
