    Added comment; When replacing, it is the general method to just replace the entire axle shaft, instead of just the CV joint. Cost is generally not that much more, than the CV joint itself, and the task becomes much more easier.

SOURCE: how do I replace cv boot on a buick park ave

The boot you need to replace is call OUTER CV BOOT.

The quickest way to inspect is to drive it in low speed (UNDER 10 mph) tight left and right turns.

If you hear clicking sound then the CV shaft is bad.

It's also depending on how long the CV boot been crack.

===
If you decide to go ahead on the job then please observe safety and use jack stands to fully support the front end.

Remove wheel,cotter pin,retainer cap and larger axle nut.

Make alignments markings on the strut tower and steering mount so your front end will able to put back to alignment.

You will need an able body to do the following.

Remove the large lower strut bolts and swing the strut off the CV.

DO NOT ROCK THE CAR!!!

Clean off the outer CV.

Install boot,grease and the two bands.

Line up the strut and steering yoke marks

repack bearings,lock nut,cap,cotter pin,wheel.


Drive the car in low speed for 1 miles with tight turns.

Do a quick inspection to make sure the CV boot is sitting perfectly on the CV.

It became an Electra trim level in 1978 and its own model starting in 1991 after the Electra was discontinued.

I have a 1989 buick park avenue electra and I don't know how to remove the air filter box lid in order to change the air filter. I see no spring clips that are holding it into place.


I had a 1989 Buick Regal, and from what i remember, there were philips head screws, or bolts in the corners of the lid, that when unscrewed, they separated the top from the bottom, thus exposing the filter. And I believe they screw/bolt heads stayed connected to the top lid part.

Totally going on memory here. Hope this helps.
