A tripod joint is the main component of an inner CV joint. It ensures the transmission of torque from a differential to the drive shaft and maintains constant wheel rotational speed when manoeuvring.

5 tips on maintaining and replacing a tripod joint

  1. The tripod joint doesn’t have a defined service life, therefore, it only needs to be replaced when it stops working.
  2. Consider the fact that the poor condition of the joint’s boot leads to premature wear. If the boot has any cracks or other defects it should be replaced immediately. When replacing the boot lubricate the joint.
  3. It is best to ask specialists from a repair shop to fix or replace the tripod joint, as it is difficult to access the part and specialist lifting equipment is required.
  4. To check the tripod joint it is advised to visit a repair shop. Professionals will disassemble the unit and examine the fasteners. If a tripod joint is in working order and only the hose clamps are damaged then they will be replaced separately, together with the axle boot.
  5. When a tripod joint is installed, it is very important to use an appropriate, high-quality lubricant. This will extend the service life of the joint.

Common tripod joint malfunctions - causes and symptoms

  • The appearance of corrosion spots. This is the result of moisture and dirt getting into the joint caused by of a torn axle boot. This issue causes a hammering noise.
  • Abrasive wear. This can happen if an axle boot is torn, allowing dust to get inside and subsequently leading to the abrasion of the joint. Abrasive wear can also be the consequence of using low-quality lubricants or not lubricating often enough. A symptom of this issue is the suspension making noise.
  • Mechanical damage. The tripod joint is exposed to lots of pressures, especially if the car is often driven off-road. This pressure can cause the part to crack or bend its shape. Symptoms of this issue include crunching sounds and vibration that is transmitted to the body while accelerating. When inspecting the mechanism with a lifting device, you can notice the drive shaft play against the tripod housing.
