Put the car in park take off the emergency brake and push the car forward and back looking for a difference in movement of the CV joints where the Axle mates to the CV. I.e.... CV joint travels a short distance before you see any axle movement. Worn CV joint knuckles will cause all kinds of clunking.
If there is no movement between the CV joint and axle when you push the car fwd or back you already know the problem is internal to the transmission.
To change the CV axle, you have to remove the lower ball joint, remove the axle nut, remove from hub, (you can pull the strut out far enough to do this), and the axle will pull out. Install in reverse order. Sounds like you were trying to remove the transmission.
Not to bad you will need a ball joint spreader. some sockets wrench's.prybar.Remove the tire then loosen cv bolt. Remove brake caliber and bracket.re move ball joint nut.Remove steering rod nut.Get the ball joint spreader an remove steering rod then remove the ball-joint.Take the cv bolt off grab the strut and pull outward .With a rubber mallet knock cv out of housing.The remove from transmission.you my have pry a little.
hi from the uk seriously the best advice i will give you having done these is remove wheel then with foot brake applied? remove the drive shaft securing nut(cv joint ) tap the joint back ? then remove b/caliper assy then diconnect track rod steering end then remove the bolt and nut that secures the lower ball swivel joint (you may find this stiff but percevier try a lever bar and press suspension lower arm down ) then two bolts and nuts secure hub assy to strut ? remove these and you can pull complete assy off drive cv shaft now you are best to take the hub assy complete with rotor/disc to a local engineer shop or garage that has a press or bearing puller hydraulic press is best option ? and ask if they could remove the old bearing and fit new for a small fee ? believe me these bearings can be a cow and if you want a quick turnround? this is best way rather than potential damage by trying to hammer bearing races out ? just a little more advice clean up/wash off assy before you take it to shop it will be more helpfull to mechanic to work on be sure you renew the cv hub nut and re torque after reassembly hope these instructions help you ? best wishes
