Remove the nuts holding the axle to the hub. remove the lock washers. Hit the center of the axle with a 10lbs or 20lbs sledge hammer (careful not to hit axle studs) to break it free. Take a small screw driver and work wedged split cones between axle and axle studs out. Then axle can be removed.
remove axle nut, remove lower ball joint nut, pop drive shaft loose with punch or wood dowel , pop lower ball join from knuckle pull up push axle out of knuckle , pull back knuckle and tie in place pop out axle with big screwdriver or pry bar ,remove seal replace.
check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck
Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well. -Loosen tire lugs -Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps) -loosen axle nut
-Jack the car up and place on jack stands -Chalk rear wheels -finish removing tire lug nuts and tire -remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut -remove brake pads -remove caliper and brake assembly -remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!
IMPORTANT STEP: *remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.
-Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly -pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly
**Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY** -Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side. -Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission -Remove entire axle and replace with new one -Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place
I am going to assume that this is the driver's side axle you are having problems with. If so, there is a tool that is required with a slide hammer to pull this axle from this transaxle. If it is the passenger side, there is a tool that is inserted through the transaxle after the driver's side axle is removed.
