First you remove the center nut to the axle.... then remove the lower ball joint...... then remove the wishbone strut bolt on the bottom...... spray the axel splines with a wd40 or equivalent.... push the axle out of the hub........ use a pry bar to remove from the transmission reverse installation

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

You can find instructions for doing this in any half decent manual. One thing they usually don't tell you is when removing the large axle nut on the end, it helps to put a spare tire on with no center cap and with the vehicle on the ground, break that nut free before starting the job. without air tools, it's next to impossible to remove it when jacked up.

SOURCE: replacing CV Joints

Yes you can remove the drive shaft by unbolting the bottom ball joint,then removing the nut that holds the shaft in the hub I would'nt recommend trying to replace just the CV joint as this can be a very complicated procedure involving specialized tools and more than just general mechanical skill,this isn't true of all,as some CV's come apart fairly easily.If the joint is bad you should probably just replace the axle.Remember to match mark any adjustable parts you may have to disassemble,and when you reassemble make sure to check the splines of the shaft and the drive hub,remove any foreign material and carefully file or sand any burs or scratches,any of these can cause the spline to bind on reassembly and possibly cause irreparable damage to one or both parts.Good luck hope this helps.

.I have removed the end of drive shaft out of the hub[rhs] ,other end of shaft is still attached.will the cv joint come off the end of the shaft so i can fit the new boot?


Which vehicle are you working on?

Some of these CV-joints are designed with an outside circlip. An example of such a setup would be on an Opel/Vauxhall. On cars like these with an outside circlip it is possible, after cleaning the grease to actually see the circlip and with a good quality circlip pliers, it is possible to expand the circlip sufficiently to remove the outer CV- joint with a sharp tap while keeping circlip expanded all whilst the CV- joint is still attached to the vehicle on the inner side.

On other designed CV- joints the circlip sits on the inside of the CV joint. In other words you cannot see the circlip at all. If it is such a design then the compete CV- joint unfortunately has to be removed.

Why it has to be removed if it an inside designed circlip?

Well in most cases it requires a rather sharp tap of a rubberized hammer on the outer CV to remove it from the drive shaft. This is not possible whilst the CV-joint is attached as damage to inner CV flange is very likely.

How to change cv joints


I would replace the complete axle assembly,
it would be cheaper and come with a warranty.

Instructions
  1. Remove the CV Joint
    • Remove the boot straps from the CV joint using a standard screwdriver or a pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
    • Slide the boot back over the interconnecting shaft.
    • Get Chevrolet Info at InsideLine Free News, Videos, Photos & More!
      Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.

    • Pull the CV joint assembly from the interconnecting shaft to force the snap ring at the top of the shaft through the CV joint assembly.
    • Tilt the inner cage (the cage holding the balls in place inside the housing) in different angles to remove the six balls. Use your thumb or a hammer and a wooden dowel, if necessary.
    • Tilt the inner cage enough to remove it from its housing.
    • Rotate the race inside the cage--the part that holds the balls against the inner cage--and remove the race from the cage.
      Replace the CV Joint
      • Apply a thick coat of grease to the new CV joint race using special high temperature/high pressure grease (see Tips below).
      • Install the race inside the new cage. Then install the cage/race assembly inside the CV joint housing.
      • Tilt the cage at different angles and fit the new balls in place.
      • Slide a new CV joint rubber boot over the interconnecting shaft.
      • Install a new snap and stop ring on the interconnecting shaft.
      • Push the interconnecting shaft through the CV joint assembly to force the snap ring through the assembly.
      • Apply a thick coat of CV joint grease to all moving parts of the assembly.
      • Apply a coat of CV joint grease to the inside of the rubber boot. Then slide the boot over the CV joint assembly.
      • Install the boot straps at each end of the boot, and tighten the straps using a clamp tool or screwdriver, depending on the type of clamp.

I've got a 1999 2500 Chevy Silverado , that I need to change a cv boot on , can u assist me.?


CV-Joints
Overhaul
These vehicles use several different types of joints. Engine size, transaxle
type, whether the joint is an inboard or outboard joint, even which side of the
vehicle is being serviced could make a difference in joint type. Be sure to
properly identify the joint before attempting joint or boot replacement. Look
for identification numbers at the large end of the boots and/or on the end of
the metal retainer bands.

The 3 types of joints used are the Birfield Joint, (B.J.), the Tripod Joint
(T.J.) and the Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.).

NOTE: Do not disassemble a Birfield joint. Service with a new joint or
clean and repack using a new boot kit.

The distance between the large and small boot bands is important and should
be checked prior to and after boot service. This is so the boot will not be
installed either too loose or too tight, which could cause early wear and
cracking, allowing the grease to get out and water and dirt in, leading to early
joint failure.

NOTE: The driveshaft joints use special grease; do not add any grease
other than that supplied with the kit.

Double Offset Joint
To Remove:

NOTE: The Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.) is bigger than other joints
and, in these applications, is normally used as an inboard joint.


  1. Remove the halfshaft from the vehicle.
  2. Side cutter pliers can be used to cut the metal retaining bands. Remove the
    boot from the joint outer race.
  3. Locate and remove the large circlip at the base of the joint. Remove the
    outer race (the body of the joint).
  4. Remove the small snap ring and take off the inner race, cage and balls as an
    assembly. Clean the inner race, cage and balls without disassembling.
  5. If the boot is to be reused, wipe the grease from the splines and wrap the
    splines in vinyl tape before sliding the boot from the shaft.
  6. Remove the inner (D.O.J.) boot from the shaft. If the outer (B.J.) boot is
    to be replaced, remove the boot retainer rings and slide the boot down and off
    of the shaft at this time.

To Install:

NOTE: Be sure to tape the shaft splines before installing the boots.
Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease. Often the grease supplied
in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half being
used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot.


  1. Install the cage onto the halfshaft so the small diameter side of the cage
    is installed first. With a brass drift pin, tap lightly and evenly around the
    inner race to install the race until it comes into contact with the rib of the
    shaft. Apply the specified grease to the inner race and cage and fit them
    together. Insert the balls into the cage.
  2. Install the outer race (the body of the joint) after filling with the
    specified grease. The outer race should be filled with this grease.
  3. Tighten the boot bands securely. Make sure the distance between the boot
    bands is correct.
  4. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle.

Except Double Offset Joint
To Remove:


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the halfshaft.
  2. Use side cutter pliers to remove the metal retaining bands from the boot(s)
    that will be removed. Slide the boot from the T.J. case.
  3. Remove the snap ring and the tripod joint spider assembly from the
    halfshaft. Do not disassemble the spider and use care in handling.
  4. If the boot is be reused, wrap vinyl tape around the spline part of the
    shaft so the boot(s) will not be damaged when removed. Remove the dynamic
    damper, if used, and the boots from the shaft.

To Install:


  1. Double check that the correct replacement parts are being installed. Wrap
    vinyl tape around the splines to protect the boot and install the boots and
    damper, if used, in the correct order.
  2. Install the joint spider assembly to the shaft and install the snap ring.
  3. Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease. Often the grease
    supplied in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half
    being used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot. Keep
    grease off the rubber part of the dynamic damper (if used).
  4. Secure the boot bands with the halfshaft in a horizontal position. Make sure
    distance between boot bands is correct.
  5. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle and reconnect the negative battery
    cable.
