Drive shafts and axle shafts are essential components of your vehicle’s drive train. Because these parts undergo a lot of movement, they may eventually wear out, making it necessary to repair or replace. Additionally, if you made custom modifications to your car’s suspension, you could have unknowingly changed drive shaft position, causing it to wear out faster.

Like most of your vehicle’s components, drive and axle shafts are tough, yet delicate in the way they are installed and balanced. That’s why it’s worth having a professional mechanic from our axle repair shop in Winnipeg handle drive shaft repair and replacement.

Description of Axle, CV Joint & Driveshaft Repair

Your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components are integral to the performance and drivability of your vehicle. The driveshaft is a steel or aluminium cylindrical component that connects the transmission to the rear differential. The driveshaft connects to the transmission through the CV joints, which are responsible for transferring the torque from the transmission to the drive wheels at a constant speed. Front wheel drive vehicles use CV joints on the front axles. CV joints allow the axle to bend and change while accommodating the bounce of the wheels. The axle bears the weight of the vehicle while also being strong enough to sustain the forces from braking and accelerating. Over time and through normal use, your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components may require maintenance or replacement services.

Benefits of Axle, CV Joint & Driveshaft Repair

There are signs to look for when determining when to schedule an inspection of your vehicle’s front axle, rear axle, CV joints, and driveshaft components. Clunking or clicking noises are signs that a CV joint needs replacement. Vibrations during acceleration may indicate a damaged driveshaft, though they may also point to an axle issue depending on the layout of your vehicle. Turning and steering issues may also arise out of a problem with the driveshaft. CV joints can go bad when the grease leaks out of a damaged CV boot. There are various determinants for how quickly your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components will degrade over time. If you would like to learn more about the intervals between repairs for front wheel drive axles, main drive shafts, CV joints, U-joints, yokes, and other axle assembly components, then contact us today.

Here are some of the axle and drive shaft repair services we perform.


A drive shaft is a cylindrical rod located in the middle of rear-wheel drive cars between the transmission and the rear axle shaft. It is designed to transmit the power generated by the engine to the rear of the vehicle. A four-wheel drive vehicle may have two drive shafts, while front-wheel drive cars have “half-shafts.” Like any other part in your vehicle, drive shaft may suffer from wear and become damaged, which you may notice by the clunking noise during shifting or acceleration, unusual vibrations or squeaking. Whenever possible, our mechanics will perform drive shaft repair, but replacement might be a safer option in some cases.


Axle shafts, also known as CV axles and half shafts, make it possible for the car’s wheels to turn by carrying the rotation momentum from the transmission. An axle shaft consists of several components: a metal pole, CV joints and boots that contain grease. If boots get torn, the grease leaks out and CV joints eventually fail due to poor lubrication, causing the entire axle shaft to wear out. Seven Oaks Transmissions offers axle shaft repair that may include replacement of one or more assembly components. However, in the case of a heavily damaged axle, a replacement of the entire shaft might be necessary.


CV (constant velocity) joints are located on each end of the axle shaft. With two axle shafts in a front-wheel drive vehicle, that’s a total of four CV joints. Outer CV joints that connect the axle shaft to the wheel tend to wear out first because they experience more movement. A CV joint is only as good as the boot that protects and lubricates it—a failed boot is the most common issue with CV joints. If you are noticing popping or clicking noises when turning or vibration when accelerating, these could be the symptoms of a failing CV joint. Typically, when symptoms become evident it’s too late for boot replacement and the entire CV joint needs to be replaced, which Seven Oaks Transmission Shop Mechanics in Winnipeg will gladly assist you with.

Had a transmission flush a few weeks back, trucks running like a gem, thanks again!

Wes Veldy

Have been having constant problems with my new car, every time I take it to the dealership they say they can’t recreate the problem or they don’t know the conditions I’m putting the car under. It was so refreshing to have someone explain what was wrong with my car and fix it properly the first time! Front desk is very friendly and helpful, they are a little pricey but totally worth having it done right!

Danny Fischer

Tom and the techs were outstanding and went above and beyond as they took my RV out of storage and serviced it so we could hit the ground running , finishing our cross Canada tour. Very thorough, high quality work. Just honest, reliable, dependable people, and so customer focused. A memorable experience I will pass on to others.

Brad Starr

I have so far had a great experience with Bob and his crew they fixed my electrical issues in my motorhome and found problems with my fan. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I called other shops who pretty much said they wouldn't help me...Terrick diesel... I won't forget how you basically told me to go away! I won't go anywhere else now

Bill Verbing

Fantastic service very freindy staff

B De

Good quality mechanics and top notch front office personel. A pleasure to deal with.

Sol Israel

I took my car to Seven Oaks Transmissions after reading all the good reviews on Google, and I wasn't disappointed.
Tom is friendly, open, and honest, and gave me the all the information I needed to make repair decisions. There was absolutely no pressure to spend more money than I wanted to spend. Plus, they arranged for shuttle service to take me to work after dropping my car off, and back to the garage when the repairs were finished.
I'd definitely recommend this business to anyone!

Kurt Huff

Kaitlin Rempel

Ted Claeys

Very smart knowledgable counter staff really helpful and very product orientated.

Laura Hildebrand

Quick service, knowledgeable and friendly staff

Mike Fuller

Great service and honest advice. I took my truck in for what i thought was a transfer case issue/noise and they spent a while going through it and listing for the noise i was hearing and checking all the know issues with these trucks. They believed it was gear lash/wear in the drive train but recommended that i didn't replace any components as everything was 100% functional and none of the bearings were showing signs (sounds) of wear and they couldn't guarantee that replacing anything would rid me of the noise i was hearing.

After several weeks of reading online and asking other shops for advice and most other sources suggesting a rebuild i found a socket slightly rolling under a floor mat that was hitting the bolt that mounts the seat to the floor. Inside the truck the noise was really muffled but underneath the truck it sounded very loud as the sound was traveling down the bolt and all across they floor board.

Anyhow, I appreciated their honesty and recommending that i don't spend the money on replacing anything as there was no other signs that anything was wrong or worn other then the noise. I will definitely be taking all of my vehicles there in the future as i trust that they are only going to recommend fixing/replacing parts that need to be replaced. They saved me 1500$ :)

Nicole Shields

You will not find better customer service anywhere else. Great, friendly staff, and reasonable pricing. I told them what I could afford and they gave me my options and didn’t push me to spend more. I will send everyone I know there. Thanks Bob, Frank and staff.

Morgan Bell

Was very impressed with the service here, was having issues with my 4wd system not working properly. They quickly found the issue and repaired as needed, they kept me updated throughout the process. would highly recommend.


This experience was incredible. As a woman I can get a lot of “ask your husband about…” type replies from mechanics. I called and spoke with Frank who listened and treated me like a valued customer. They listened to my concerns and made suggestions. This garage set the bar high for customer service and I will keep recommending them to friends and family.


Stellar service I brought my van to see frank without an appointment for a power steering failure he fit me in and got me back on the road. Forever grateful for their service. Thanks to the team.

Justin J

Really impressed with the level of service from Bob and the rest of the team. I had an emergency with my truck and bob ensured that I was able to get in and get back on the road same day. I highly recommend using seven oaks transmission and will be back for any of our vehicle needs.

Tyler Bad Cop

My F150 Truck handles better both in the wheel and the seat than when I first bought it. Thank you!

Cris Ashton

I had my 4T65 transmission rebuilt 2-1/2 years ago. I wanted to wait a bit before giving my review so I can also comment on how it is with time and mileage on the transmission.

I can happily say that the transmission has been working flawlessly since the rebuild. I could not be happier.

The staff were also excellent to deal with. They clearly explained what is involved in the rebuild and which parts definitely needed replacing and which ones were recommended to have replaced and why they needed replacing.

Edward Wertepny

Had my trans. fluid drained & filled. Service was performed to my satisfaction.


Frankly I did not go there but spoke to them over the phone.

The 5 stars is cos they did not waste my time or theirs and said upfront they don't work on the car that I was looking to get fixed.

He was very nice and polite and suggested another shop who might work on it.

Dave Smith

This company is top notch.Starting with the owner & all of his employees. They worked on my vehicle, and we're very honest about what needed to be done. I would recommend taking your vehicle to this business anytime. Absolutely professional from top to bottom. Very polite, efficient, & courtesy people!! Thanks guys! Great

Bert Jamault

I have been bringing my vehicles to Seven Oaks for several years - and for good reason. They always take the time to clearly explain the situation with the options and never fail to resolve the issue. Bob and his staff are excellent and provide top notch customer service. The latest repair performed on my vehicle made it feel like a new car!

This is the best garage that I've ever dealt with - period. Highly recommended!

Rebecca Clifton

It was a true pleasure working with Bob, Frank and the rest of the staff here. With an old car and very little mechanical knowledge, you truly have to trust the process. They were transparent, straightforward and provided numerous detailed updates which made them so easy to trust and easy to work with. I can’t thank them enough.

Tracy Ball

This place truly cares about their clients.

Mr Wolf

Work was completed as requested. I was updated with phone calls to ensure I wanted to go forward with the work. I was shown the parts that were replaced after. Family one shop. Honest people. Wait list to get your car in is about 3 weeks, but that's reflective of the quality of service you're going to receive. Highly recommend!


Took one of my trucks to get a part repaired connected to the transmission and the service and turn around time was amazing. These are very honest people who will not charge you extra repairs if your vehicles do not need them. Great experience !

Ted Sobieski

Had a very informative and helpful discussion with the owner I believe.
