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

The answer to my problem (How to remove axle from cv joint in order to replace cv boot on my 4WD triton) was so simple its a pity that others have not suggested it.
The answer is purchase a stretchy relacement boot. Although the axle is only 25mm diameter or so you have to get it over approx 75mm diameter of the cv joint its self.
My friendly 4WD speciallist has a stretching tool similar to what farmers use to fit castrating rings to stock (only bigger), fitted the boot in a jiffy.
One more thing, dont worry about not having the right tool to twitch up the clamping bands, cable ties are a hell off a lot simpler. And yeah got my roadworthy OK

Have a plymouth breeze, every time I turn left it was making a loud clicking noise, now it sounds like a really bad loud scrubbing noise when I turned and drive starting last night. So it I cant drive it....


Probably a bad CV joint on one of your drive axles to the front wheels. You have two drive axles coming out of the transaxle, one to each front wheel, and both have an inner CV joint where they enter the transaxle, and an outer CV joint where the axles fit into the wheel hub. (A CV joint is really like the old U-joints, serving the same purpose.) A clicking noise on turning is usually a badly worn outer CV joint. The cheapest fix is to buy a remanufactured half-shaft for your car. That is the axle shaft with both CV joints at each end inspected and reconditioned with new grease and CV boots installed. You need to know which side is bad before buying. The half-shaft is sold ready to install. Someone with good mechanical skills will need to remove the old one and replace it with the new reconditioned axle shaft, or half shaft as they are also called. The last time I bought one (about two years ago) the cost was reasonable- about $65.00. That is less than the cost of one new CV joint.
Hope this helps you out.

My 1990 toyota celica has a bad vibration in the Problem with the Toyota Celica 1990 Celica my 1990 toyota celica has a bad vibration in the passenger side front i have replaced tie rod ends, ball joints,...


Hi,
Have you ever replaced the shocks / struts? Are you sure your tire does'nt have a bump spot or out of round? I usually will swap the tires front to back to see if the vibration or bumping moves, good way to tell if the tire is bad. I've gotten some pretty poor tires before, some do have factory flaws that will cause that. Shocks will cause that also. Sway bar pins / joints that are worn can cause that also.

Where is the cv joint


Hello harborviewdo. My name is Roger and i will answer your question. Your vehicle has two drive axle half shafts. One on each side of the transmission. The out board side of each shaft is called the outer cv joint. Generally when they are bad you will find the outer boot is torn and has thrown the grease out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know it was helpful. Thank you for using Fix Ya. Roger

How do I get the cv joint seperated from the shaft of the axel because i need to do that to place a new cv boot on?


To replace the outer boot on this shaft you have to first remove the inner joint from the shaft, then remove the outer joint boot from the shaft and joint by sliding it back down the shaft. Do not remove the outer CV joint from the shaft. I believe you have to replace the entire axle shaft if it is removed as it's not made to be removed and reinstalled. I would actually suggest replacement of the entire shaft instead of just the boot anyway unless you were lucky enough to catch a leaking boot as soon as the boot went bad as it takes such a very small amount of road grit to start the damage that will eventuall wear out the joint and then you have to take the axle out again. [just my opinion as over the years I've seen dozens of bad boots cause joints to fail a short time later] Hope this helps out a bit and good luck!

Cv axle replacement in a 1994 toyota celica gts


Jack up the car, remove the tire, you'll need to remove the axleshaft nut, disconnect the strut from the wheel hub. You can pull the wheel hub towards you. This should give you enough room to get the outer CV joint out of the hub, you may need to take off the brake caliper, and tie it back for more room. You'll need to use a pry bar to pop out the inner CV joint out of the transmission. Some stores rent a tool to use to remove the inner CV joint from the transmission.

1997 Pathfinder How do you replace the left outer cv boot?


How to Replace a CV Boot
( DIY Complexity: Hard / Time: 3.2 hours )

Parts:
1. CV Boot
2. CV Boot Clamp Kit

Tools:
1. Mallet Hammer
2. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Combination Wrench Set
4. Floor Jack
5. Flashlight
6. Flat Head Screwdriver
7. Socket Set
8. Tire Iron

Steps:
Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a level surface, making sure the vehicle will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Lift up the front of the vehicle using a jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn the wheel lug nuts counter clockwise. Remove the front wheels.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the CV boot for damage.
o Tip: The CV joint may be worn if the boot is damaged. Thoroughly inspect the CV joint assembly before installing the new boot. If the CV joint is damaged, replace the entire CV joint axle assembly.

Step 6 Mark the axle for installation reference. Remove the CV joint axle assembly.

Step 7 Using a bench vise, hold the shaft of the CV joint secure so that you can separate the CV joint from the shaft. Remove the CV boot clamps.

Step 8 Slide the CV boot off the outer CV joint.

Step 9 Using a rubber mallet, knock the CV joint off of the axle shaft.

Step 10 Remove the old boot from the CV axle shaft and wipe off any old grease. Clean the sealing surface on the CV joint.

Step 11 Fill the CV joint with grease and get it ready to slide back onto the shaft.

Step 12 Slide the new boot onto the shaft but do not tighten the inner clamp yet. Install a new retaining clip before putting the joint and axle together.

Step 13 Slide the CV joint back onto the axle shaft completely.

Step 14 Pack the boot with grease and slide the boot over the CV joint housing. Secure the boot with new clamps.

Step 15 Install the CV joint and axle back into the vehicle in the reverse order that it was removed.

Step 16 Mount the wheel back onto the hub assembly.

Step 17 Tighten lug nuts in a star pattern and torque to suggested manufacturer specifications in the vehicle owner’s manual.

Step 18 Remove jack stands.

Step 19 Lower vehicle with jack until it is securely on the ground.

Step 20 Drive the vehicle to make sure that any noises are no longer present and that there are no indications of wearing parts. Before road testing, visually inspect the area you have worked on to make sure everything is tightened and assembled properly.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

How do I remove the outer CV joint from the axle?


After removing the axle assembly, clip the metal band on the large side of the rubber grease boot, slide the boot back on the axle shaft. Pull the outer CV housing and axle stub away from the CV joint. You will find that there is a circlip holding the bearing carrier onto the axle shaft, remove it. Remove the boot.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Trying to get the bearing off of the cv axle 1994 camry


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.
