2.7.7. Check of protective covers of a half shaft

1. The condition of a protective cover of a half shaft significantly influences serviceability of the CV JOINT as prevents hit of dirt and water on the specified connection.
2. Hit on a cover of lubricant causes a premature exit of this detail out of operation therefore it is recommended to wash out a cover water with soap. The external cover wears out (contracts and stretches) at turn of a wheel quicker as it is constantly deformed. Therefore the condition of an external cover should be checked regularly.
3. Wring out folds of a cover of a half shaft and check existence on covers of mechanical damages (gaps and cracks) and lubricant traces, and also durability of fastening of collars. In the presence of damages or lubricant replace covers (see subsection 8.3.1).
