Hi there,

The constant velocity joints are made of very hard material and are located behind the drive wheels on the driveshafts.

Their job is to transfer power from the transmission to the road wheels.

Lubrication is via special grease contained by rubber boots.

It is a flexible joint so that you can turn the steering and contains bearings, holders and a housing.
