How to change cv joint honda accord 1998
web page on this site not working as it should so found a way in in from here ,anyway its easy to do but i dont always strip them as i have a big lolly pop tool that opens with compressed air ,but what you do is to remove the steering track rod end ,then the bolts holding the suspension leg and pull the drive shaft out ,taking the big nut off before you remove the wheel of course ,sorry getting tired in this time zone ,right now put a big pair of stilsons on the drive shaft so it cannot pull out from the inner end then tap the end with a heavy hammer and it will drop off as the circlip is on the end and not inner end that needs circlip pliers ,when refitting squeeze the clip in with long nosed pliers and with three hands tap the drive coupling back on ,while its off using a small tappy hammer knock one side of the ball retaining ring down so the ball bearing pops out on the opposite side ,take all 6 out and wash out with petrol or diesel ,,refit the balls and then push some grease up the middle ,when refitting the new rubber boot push some grease up into that so when you fit the boot the lips are dry from grease or it will slip off on the turn .this job takes me with coffee break and ciggy included about half hour on a southern europeon vehicle ,but a vehicle from northerneurope with all the rain and salt up their _?_=? well anything up to 3 hrs or more allowing for drilling the seized up bolts .
