SOURCE: cv joints
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.

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

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.

Do yourself a favor and replace the whole cv shaft. Quicker, eaiser and not much money. First get the car in the air and remove the wheel. Then pop the lower ball joint. This is done by unbolting it from the knuckle and using a ball joint seperator fork and a hammer. Then remove the spindle nut on the end of the cv shaft. You push down on the lower A arm pulling the ball joint out of the knuckle and push the cv shaft out of the hub. Once these are dislogged, you can movel the strut and hub out of the way and pull the cv shalt out of the trans axle. Push the new one in and reverse what you did.

Go to my profile I have just explained how to change a cv boot on a Trooper. The axle needs to be taken out to change the boot so the same solution. What you call an axle I have refered to as a drive (short for driveshaft) It takes a lot of explaining so save me a lot of writing if you read the solution I gave for changing the CV boot. Cheer's
