Mercury owners often find themselves caught between series of car problems that they could have easily avoided if they have paid enough attention to the signs and symptoms of car trouble. The Mercury axle assembly is one of the parts of your car that take part in the most vital role of handling your vehicle. It is part of your car's drive train. The drive train consists of several parts such as the clutch, the differential, the drive shaft, the constant velocity (CV) joints, the transmission and the axle assembly. Of course, these parts depend on whether your car has a manual or automatic transmission or whether you have a front or rear wheel drive.
Traveling frequently on difficult roads can stress your Mercury axle assembly. Bumps on the road and excessive shifting can significantly damage the axle assembly. To avoid such problems it is vital that you always make sure that the parts of your drive train are carefully lubricated and are guarded from outside factors such as dust and dirt. In addition, the rubber gasket that protects the CV joint should always be checked for leaks. Take note that even a small amount of impurities in your axle assembly's joint can really destroy it. Washing out the contaminants will not solve the problem. It may even worsen it and may even result to total failure of the axel assembly.
When you start observing handling difficulties with your car it is a sign that it is time to mount a new axle assembly. Vibrations, stuttering when speeding up and clunking noise are often signs of damaged axle assembly. There are times though that it is difficult to detect an axle assembly failure because its signs are very similar to other symptoms of mechanical failure. So, if after analyzing the symptoms you are certain that the problem is your axle assembly you need to replace it right away. Remember that you have spent a lot of time trying to diagnose the problem so when you are sure that he trouble is the axle buy a replacement and install it immediately.
Driving with an unsafe axle is not only dangerous but it can also damage the other parts of your car. And although most common damage in axle assembly occurs in the CV joint, it is often more economical if you replace the entire axle assembly instead of replacing just the CV joint. This way you can be sure that everything suits together and there is no worry for you that you will be replacing the same part in just a short period of time.
