Hi med
the quickest way to do this is to buy a cv boot kit that comes in 2 halfs. The kit includes a welding adhesive and works really well.Cut the old cv boot off and remove the retaining bands then add some grease to the cv joint since the opportunity presents itself. Follow the fitting instructions to the letter and just make sure your hands are clean so as not to harm the bonding process

hope this helps you

Hi, on my subaru legacy, when I turn the car to the left hand side there is a little rumble going on on the right wheel, what can it be? steering wheel liquid?

It's the Constant Velocity Joint (CVJ) on the front offside wheel. Will either need re-greasing (short term fix) or replacing.
Check that the surrounding boot (on inside of wheel) has not split allowing grease to escape

Blow cv joints why

When constant velocity joints flex with normal operation the boot stretches and compresses like a bellows. over time the rubber fails and dirt is allow to enter the sealed interior where the the joint, consisting of bearings, is packed in grease when dirt contaminates the system it causes the bearing to become pitted and deteriorate. The joint becomes loose and fails.

Loud roar when backing up then turning to go ahead noise is from right front of car

The constant velocity joint is shot. This vehicle is front wheel drive, and there is a rod with assorted gears that transfer power from the auto transmission (transaxle) to the front wheels. Eventually, this part will fail completely, and the car will be unable to move. Have the CV joint replaced for that side only. No need to fix them symetrically, because they fail just when the boot breaks and the oil inside spills out. Do not accept reburbished parts, just buy new ones. Rebuilt CVJ's usually last less than 10k miles

Have your drive axles constant velocity joints checked out. Look at the boots covering the cv joints. If they are split your joint is gone. If there is any play in the cv joint they need to be replaced.

PVC joint

Well to start with it is a CV (constant velocity) joint.
You might have the option if the joint is not "OUT" of installing a new boot on the joint without removing it from the vehicle.
If it is out the you have to remove the tire from the side that is out.
Take off the nut that is on the end of the axle.
Then remove the spindle from the lower a frame.
Pull the spindle off the outer splines of the axle shaft
Then with a bar pop the old one out of the transmission and reverse the procedure it go back together. Make sure you get the axle popped back in the transmission.

ck the CV boot. if its broken you need a new cv axle, if its ok, jack up the car so both wheels are off the ground. either put the car in drive or just manually spin each front wheel while gripping the coil spring for the front strut. if you feel any (roughness) at all, that wheel bearing is bad. it should be smooth. if you have a bad one you will know it by this method. Even good mechanics sometimes replace the wrong bearing, but this 100% works every time.
