There are no routine grease points on this car. You should look every year or 2 for split rubber boots and escaping grease on the CV joints, tie rod ends, and lower outer ball joints, but that's about all for grease.
are you talking about the drivers side trans-axle? if you are then it is the CV boot that is ripped, it is easier to replace the axle. Loosen lug nuts, jack car up, place on jack stands, remove tire, remove and suspend brake caliper, remove rotor, I believe it is like a 1 inch and 1/4 socket to remove the wheel bearing nut, the CV joint can be pushed through and then removed. Hope this helped
You pull the enitre wheel assembly out to be able to slip the entire broken cv boot out. Look in the manual on how to pull the axle out. This will be the best write youll find for this http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/maintenance/cv_axle/
I think you mean cv joint. If so, a new axle cost $59. You are doing alot of extra work and the joints could be damaged. The outer joint comes off, but it takes a large hammer. The inner joint usually has an inboard ring clip that you pop out with a screwdriver.
have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol
simple job basically jack up car place stands for your own safety unbolt the cv mounting bolts around 6 to 7 each end near rubber boots then take one cv with you to ensure you a buying the right replacement fit new cv and NEW bolts back on to car tighten good but be careful not to break bolts and after 100km recheck that the bolts are still tight good luck
