What tools are needed to chang rear cv joint in a 2002 mercury mountaineer


Basic tools..remove wheel, remove axle nut, remove brake caliper, remove lower control arm bolts,remove the bolt for upper control arm, remove the outer tie rod bolt, support vehicle and suspension, the hardest part is getting the axle out of the rear diff, sometimes a simple pry bar will pop it out, but I've run into a lot where you either need the special pickle fork or even have to remove the complete rear diff with axle still attached, remove cover and take out c clip.if you continue prying and hammering between inner cv joint and diff, you will cause damage to diff.the cv joint is steel, cast maybe, and diff is aluminum so guess what will be damaged first? That'll lead into a pretty expensive repair.the special tool to remove axle is 205-529

I have a 1994 Nissan quest that starts making a clicking noise when I turn the wheel. I'm assuming it is my cv joint that needs to be replaced. Would it just be easier and less time to change The axel...


If you have never done this before it's best to let a pro do it, you will need a compressor, air tools to disconnect the lower control arm, and upon re-installing the new axle you will have to make sure it goes in correctly or you will have a bad atf leak.!!!!! You will also need the factory repair manual in order to ensure any special procedures are followed.

How do you replace cvs joints on a 2001 ford escape


you take it to a shop and have them replace the front drive shafts. there is a CV joint on each end. you need special tools, knowledge, and a lift to get this job done. get yourself a repair manual on ebay and scope it out before you put a wrench to it. they charge extra if you worked on it first.

Cv joint replacement 1998 isuzu trooper 4x4


This is a simple job that is why it is not very detailed in your book. Nothing special. Do one side at a time so you have a reference to how to reassemble it. Remove your tire , brake calipers be sure not to stress the rubber brake lines or open the brake lines to air. Remove both upper and lower ball joints. When taking out the ball joints remove the cotter pin and bolt and beat the **** out of the joint for it to release. Then the C/V axles will come right out with a bit out encouragement. You will need a few tools wrenches pry bar hammer. I would buy a Chilton's or a Haynes repair manual for torque specs for reassembly. Good luck and take your time. And unless the axles are making noise you can just replace the rubber boots. Which is alot cheaper.

Can I just replace just one cv joint


Yes you can,I'm not sure if your refering to the whole axle or one cv joint on the axle.Replacing a cv joint is best left to a qualified mechanic,most cv joints require special tools and procedures to replace correctly.
