If your looking to replace them, wich is what most do today, it is cheaper to purchase a axle with new cv joints than to rebuild them. It is a very simple job in todays cars, remove tires remove lower tie rod , remove nut in center of the rotor and pull wheel assembley to the side hanging from the strut, pull axle out replace the transmission seal, push new axle in. When putting wheel assembley on, use a hydraulic jack on bottom of the rotor to push it to the axle splines and put the new nut on .

SOURCE: how do i drop the oil pan in my 2003 chevy

Hi if you are %100 sure you have undone all the bolts holding it in then the chances are it is just stuck if the car has been running hot then the gasket in between tends to weld the sump onto the engine.
The only way to remove the sump is by either using a rubber hammer and keep hitting the sump on a strong point of the sump like the corners.
Or the other option would be get a flat screwdriver and gently go round the sump prying of the sump it will come off but with the heat of the engine the tend to weld together so just persivere and youll get their in the end

Let me know if you need further assistance ok

I need to replace an oil pressure sensor and a oil pan gasket on a 1999 Chevrolet Tracker. Which part should I replace first?


Collette, do oil pressure sensor first to make sure oil pressure is good in case it is not, then maybe you will have to change oil pump when pan off if found to be defective. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2005 Chevy Cavalier, oil pan has hole from rock. Removed all bolts but still cant get pan off. Does engine need to be supported by something during process and what can the pan be caught on


most of front end and engine cross over support--if hole is small enough clean and make a plug with pop rivet and cold weld epoxy(oil & gas proof) or if bigger use rubber oil plug replacement a plug about 1/2 inch wide used as replacement when oil drain plug damaged or cross threaded most auto stores sell them
