How front wheel drive works

In this article we have discuss about front wheel drive and how to work front wheel drive and its assembly.

Assembly of front wheel drive train :

In most of front wheel drive train have a transaxle. A transaxle combines the transmission and differential into one single unit.  

Because of all components are in front of the car front wheel drive vehicle don't need long drive shafts to transfer torque to the wheels. instead of this half-shaft is used. Half-shaft is connects with the transaxle to the wheel assembly.
Half-shaft connect with the transaxel to the wheel assembly with the use of constant velocity joints, or CV-joints instead of U-joints. 
CV-joints use a ball bearing mechanism to reduce the friction and to allow more complex wheel movement.
