How do I decide if it's the drive shaft or the CV joint?


It is easier to change the whole half shaft than it is to change just the CV joint.

My volvo s60 03 isnt making any noise when I turn right or left, and there is no visible problem other than the boot being torn and grease being all over the place. Is it possible my boot is just torn and...


Yes, that's possible, especially if the joint hasn't had enough time for dirt to get inside the joint. If you remove the half shaft, you can put a new boot and clamps on it, with new grease supplied with the boot. Only thing is, the joint has to be partially disassembled, it is very messy, and takes a couple of hours. An alternative is to buy a remanufactured half shaft with both joints (inner and outer CV joints) checked for wear and new boots installed. This half shaft is ready to install-the cost of these remanned shafts is actually less than the price of one new CV joint- about $70 for a chevy half shaft as an idea of prices.

Need to replace outer cv boot. how do i remove the cv joint to get the new boot fitted?


In the real world the boot is put on as the half shaft is assembled. It will cost more to pay a machine shop to take the joint apart and put on a new boot and reassemble than to just go out and buy a new half shaft. And it will cost even less to exchange your unbooted half shaft for a rebuilt one with new boots. And you have to take the half shaft out and put it back in for both scenarios. Lots of work there and an alignment may be in order afterwards as well.

I drove a saturn with a missing boot for two years, the owner before me had wrapped it in duct tape so who knows how long it was gone before I got it. I gave it to my girlfriend and she drove it for another year that way. When I had the front wheel bearings replaced I also did the half shaft since it was all apart but the shaft itself was still good.

If you do not want to spend that much money until failure and you despise duct tape autozone and advance both sell a couple sizes of boot kits. These wrap around the CV joint, are glued to the metal and zip ties are put on each end of the boot. Cleanliness is crucial if the glue is to work.


Good Luck

How much does it cost to repair a cv axle


The best option isn't to repair it, but get a rebuilt half shaft. Otherwise you run the risk of the other CV falling apart right after the new one starts putting pressure on it's joint. Never buy a new CV all by itself and try installing it to the half shaft, thats just too much work for too little gain. Most half shafts are pretty cheap and come ready to go with 2 brand new CV joints attached and ready to install.

How do you fit a cv joint to an evo


If you have a bad cv joingt it is usually more cost effective to replace the entire half shaft. Replacing the entire half shaft is simplier, cleaner and easire than dealing with replacing a CV joint

CV JOINTS?


The CV joints are needed to transfer the torque at a constant speed to steered wheels as well as to accommodate up and down motions of the suspension.
You will find CV joints in all front-wheel drive cars. Many rear- and four-wheel drive cars and trucks have CV joints as well. The CV joint is packed with grease and protected by the rubber or plastic boot.
It does not require any maintenance and supposed to last very long provided that protective boot will not get damaged.
