Can you drive a car with a broken axle?

If one of your axles is broken, do not drive the car. It’s not safe. If you notice a bumping, clicking or grinding noise when going into turns, your axle isn’t broken yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Actually, the problem here is most likely a failing CV joint.

How much does it cost to replace an axle on a car?

The repairs can cost you anywhere from $170 to $900 or more. It depends primarily on the kind of car you have, as the parts will range in price quite a bit. Labor costs are typically between $100 and $200, but a few cars will cost more. It just depends on how long the mechanic has to work to change out your axle.

Where is the axle of a car?

Many cars blend the transmission and the axle to make the transaxle. In rear-wheel vehicles, the drive axle is located in the back and is connected to the driveshaft which turns the drive axle. The CV joint is what connects the axle and wheel together.
