A CV Axle is the drive axle on a Eurovan that contains two velocity joints. CV axle are mainly used in front drive and all wheel drive However, rear wheel cars with independent suspensions typically use CV rear halfshafts. Some all wheel vehicles use CV axle shafts for all axles. Two different types of CV are used on CV axles in modern At the inboard end, where the only moves up and down the movement of the suspension, a Triax known as Tripod) joint is This has a three-pointed yoke to the shaft, which has barrel-shaped on the ends. These fit into a cup three matching grooves, to the differential. Since there is significant movement in one axis, simple arrangement works

At the outboard end of the driveshaft, a slightly unit is used. The end of the VOLKSWAGEN CV Axle is splined which into the outer joint and is held in place by a circlip. The fits in the center of a large, star-shaped gear that inside a circular cage. The is spherical but with ends and it typically has six openings around the This cage and gear fit a grooved cup that has a splined and shaft attached to it. Six large balls sit inside the cup grooves and fit the cage openings, nestled in the of the

star gear. The outer on the cup then runs through the bearing and is secured by the axle nut


The Constant Velocity in a CV axle allow a rotating shaft to transmit power a variable angle, at constant speed, without an appreciable in friction or play. The CV joint in the CV is extremely flexible, and can accommodate the changes of angle when the wheels are turned by the steering
