Use a prybar to remove the CV joint, place against hosing and gently pry to release CV.
This is assuming you have un bolted the necessary front end parts prior to removing the CV joint.

Jack up car, remove tire, caliper, axle nut and washer. remove and seperate tie rod from spindle and remove lower ball joint nut and separate, pull spindle apart from axle, use a pry bar and pop the other end of axle from trans axle housing. think backwards to reassemble.

You can find instructions for doing this in any half decent manual. One thing they usually don't tell you is when removing the large axle nut on the end, it helps to put a spare tire on with no center cap and with the vehicle on the ground, break that nut free before starting the job. without air tools, it's next to impossible to remove it when jacked up.

SOURCE: cv joint on driver side needs replacing

Hi there. You really need to replace the whole cv saft on the side that is noisy. Changing just the joint is possible but requires pulling the shaft anyway and is not very probable since the cost and extra labor are as much as buying a new shaft. In either case you will pull your front wheel and brake assembley off the culprit side. Once this is done, you will need to seperate the lower controlarm from the hub via the lower ball joint. This can be done with prybars, but its hard and you will probably rip the rubber boot on the balljoint so its best to use a balljoint press available in many autoparts stores rent-a-tool programs. Once the ball joint is removed you should be able to pull the hub assembley out tword you enough to remove the cv shaft splines from the hub. If you do not have enough room, you may need to seperate the tie rod end as well. You can use the ball joint press for this as well. Once the splined end of the shaft is free of the hub, take a pry bar and find a place on the other end of the shaft where you can pry it out away from the transmission. Sometimes this requires giving it a quick **** to pop it out but there are no bolts or anything holding it. Do becareful not to put the prybar against any breakable components. Once shes out put your new one in the trans and shove it until it clicks in. Put the outer end into the hub before reconnecting the ball joint other wise your not likley to get it in and will have to seperate the joint again. After that you just put ypur brakes and stuff together and you are good to go.

SOURCE: how to replace a cv joint on a 2005 toyota

There are two types of cv joints used. One type bolts on the other you have to pop out. Do this by prying it out with a big screwdriver. A c-clip hods it in and it will pop out for you. When reinstalling be sure it seats back in.

SOURCE: CV joint noise

this sounds like a normal condition. sorry i cant give a real great technical explanation why, but it is. are you jacking up one side of the vehicle only? you will find that if both wheels are off the ground or if one is still on the ground, it will act completely different. just the way the final drive is set up.

How do I remove the front driveshaft on a 2003 TrailBlazer?


there are two types, one will use a slide type joint rubber insul, and will have small bolts holding it to transfer case. the other type will have no bolts and pops in to transfer case, to remove this type you use a small pry bar and pop it out like a cv axle out of transmission, it uses a c clip to lock itself in, wedge pry between transfer case and joint and give a pull.

Loud knocking sound from front drive axle side


I really doubt that its the spider gears that are bad. Most likely that its the axle shaft- not as bad as it sounds- I sell lots of them.
