If the boots are torn, the condition of the bearings are most likely in bad shape as well. I would buy new axles and have them installed. Axles should be around $80.00 and should only take an hour to replace them. The hourly rate at my shop is $75.00. If, for example, you were to bring it to my shop and have them replace, you would be looking at approx. $150.00 per side to do out the door. Do alot of shopping before you commit to a shop to do the work for you. You'll find that shops vary from one to another.

What are the symptoms of a bad CV joint on an all wheel drive Volvo

if your cv joint is going bad check the rubber boot located on your front axel if there is a tear in the boot once dirt gets inside the boot depending on how long youve had the noise the cv joint will have to be replaced sometimes the first signs are a clicking noise when turning coming from the cv joint if you catch it early you may get away with just replacing the boot there are two ways of doing this depending on the vehical one is to buy split boot it wraps around the axel and is held together with tiny bolts and nuts the axel doesant have to be removed useing this type you still have to remove the damaged boot and clean the cv joint thoroughly i suggest useing brake parts cleaner be carefull not to get it on any rubber parts or lines then before installing the new boot pack the joint with grease and the boot the other way the old joint must be removed you will have to remove the complete axel assemble the new joint and axel will come as one unit depending on the vehical your balljoint or joints may have to be removed also this method to me is the prefferd way this will assure all is new its more involved but better in the long run

Hi, What tools & equipment are needed to change the front diff axle on my GV 1.6VVT year 2002? how long should it take to do?

Every mechanic shop has a time job book that they use to look up jobs on vehecles, this is how they determin what to charge,If you call a few garages and ask how much for this job you will get 3 differant answers but close, subtrack the parts price and you can see the labor price is left over.They will tell you how long the job is going to be,And they know what they are doing,,,,all the tools needed is same for frount brakes,and you have to know how to disasemble the balljoints and tierods with out danageing the rubber oil boots around them the strut and need a large set of sockets for the axel bolt and a good air or electric power wrench to remove bolt on axel.

My 2004 Subaru Outback 6.3 has leaks in both front axel accordian seals. What should I do and what should it cost?

Replace the c.v boots or will damage you c.v joint's then you will need to replace the hole shaft, if you going to get it done at a repair shop you be looking about $250.00 to $300.00 both side's, if your going to do it you self parts run about $20.00 to $30.00 each.

I dont know how to remove the passenger side front axel in my 1986 ford f150

pull off the rotor-caliper-and behind the rotor is the hub,unbolt it and use a chisel to separate it from the housing,pull that off and wiggle the axel shaft lightly while pulling out and it barely fits through but it will come out.there is a rubber boot on the inner part of the axel,so cut off the clamp so it will come apart..dont hit the threads on the hub,ive done that once and had to use a triangler file to fix the threads

My dad wants to know if the seal on the cv joint can be fixed

not worth the effort, the joint is probably worn anyway, the whole axle shaft only costs probably 80 bucks remanufactured compared to 30 bucks for a boot kit you have to dismantle the axle to install with special tools anyway.

When I drive speeds of 60+ and let go of the gas pedeal, there is mild vibration felt in the steering wheel and a bit in the seat. I bought new tires/alignment in July, and got new brake pads in October....

Cv axel or motor mount The CV axel boots should be good with no tears and with thr trie off the ground and the car in park there shlud be no persectable plat between the axel shaft and the tire when rotating the trie by hand untill the transmistion park or in gear stops it. It's OK for the trans to turn a little before the trans stops it but not the axel hold the inner axel CV and turn the tire again and the inner joint should turn with the tire with no play except the trans slack. If this is good check the other axel the same way if one has more than the other just replace the one with more play anf see if you can get away with just one! The replacement axels are less than $100 new and half that for rebuilt after you turn in the core ( old one ). Their strange as they wear out and some last very long and others a shorter period. Many cars go to the junkyard with the axels in them with lots of miles and their the ones that came with the car.

Seperate outer cv from axel 99 chevy metro

First, did you check the price difference on a complete axle (saves time and aggravation of doing joint & boot) Most times you can get them apart by just putting the axle in a vise and giving the joint a good smack with a hammer. There is a small clip in the end that you can spread, but you have to look carefully to find it. Most people have a hard time getting the boot to stay on and find it has come off a few weeks after they installed it.
That's why I suggest replacing the entire axle which if far cheaper than they used to be!!!

Brake Problem on 2004 VW Passat

You have to get CV Boots replaced, this happens because they split. What happen was something got stuck inside the axel where the little boots is held on and split that little piece of rubber (its easy to do). As a result, fluid leaks and and spashes on the back tires so you never know it happens. When you make turns the car will make a clicking noise. You can add fluid but, it will continue to leak out if those boots are split so, you have to replace the boots. I had to replace the boots and axel because the boots come on the axel. Its an expensive project. Boots, axel and labor $500 starting if you go through the dealer. Also, if you have an extended warranty they won't cover it because there is no time frame when these boots split it just something that can happen. Honestly, they know this is something common especially if you drive through snow.
