SOURCE: Front-left Outer CV Shaft Disconnected from inner-CV shaft

If memory serves me right the axel is bolted to a plate on the front differenchel and a large nut on the end that goes thru the hub bearing, if you take the whole shaft out( both ends) i see no problem running it temporary without it.

How do you change a cv joint on a 04 kia optima


The CV joints snap ring usually pop when you strike the joint squarely with a hammer. take care not to pop the shaft . If you clean the back of the CV joint you will see if it is a snap ring or a horseshoe type clip (that has to be compressed) either way you strike the CV joint from behind.

How do you change a cv joint on a 1992 dodge caravan? The right cv joint is out. Do we need to replace the right axel or can we just change the cv joint?


You need to replace the whole right side axle shaft. Take the ball-joint loose and the axle nut. Pull the shaft from the hub assembly and then pull it from the transmission

What's involved in changing a cv joint in a 2000 Rav 4? I have very good mechanical abilities & have changed cv joints before (about 10 years ago)


Easy enough job really, jack car up, put axel stand under. remove wheel - remove hub nut, remove pinch bolt - prise open the pinch bolt part (sorry cant rem name) pop out the hub from the lower arm. Remove CV join from drive shaft. Usually a tap will pop it out.. sometimes theres a circlip that need removing (models vary). Grease up new CV joint - put grease in new boot, pop boot over drive shaft. put cv join on (replace circlip if provided in kit). join cv to hub - attach CV boot fully. fasten hub nut, replace wheel.

done. might need tracking again or aligning once you do this.

How do i replace an right side outer cv boot on a 1998 chev k1500 ?


Pull the wheel off and pull the cv shaft nut off (36 mm) pop off the lower ball joint and tap the cv shaft from the wheel bearing, then it should pop freely from the brake rotor and wheel bearing, you will then have full access to the cv shaft and the boot can be changed easily.

How do you change the front left axel on a 1993 buick regal custom. It is making a clicking nois going in revers and forward a t low speeds


This is called a cv shaft. First jack the car up and support the vehicle with jack stands. This is for safety. Then remove the wheel and the brake caliper. you need to unbolt the tie rod end and separate it from its housing. You also need to unbolt the strut from the hub assembly. You might alos have to remove the bolt from the ball joint and remove it from the hub. In the center of the hub assembly is a large nut that will also have to be remove. This is actually holding the cv shaft to the bearing inside the hub. once you have removed the cv shaft from the hub, give it a straight hard **** away fromthe trans. There is a little c clip on the other end of the cv shaft which keeps it inside the trans. If the cv shaft separates into two pieces, this is ok. Take a small pry bar or flat head screw driver and place it between the part of the cv shaft left in the trans and the case. Be gentle but lightly pry against the cv shaft and it should come out of the trans. Reverse the order of disassembly and bang your done.

I changed my front right cv joint and now the clanking/grinding wound is worse and my bakes arent working but there is enough fluid


The CV joint has nothing to do with the brakes you probably put something back wrong because you had to remove the Caliper and Brake pads.
The CV joint you probably never replaced the C clip which keeps the shaft spline from going out into the hub. The CV joint also has to be synchronized. Which means they have to line up on both sides. Most will mark the shaft first, before removing.
