Use a pry bar to snap it out of the transmission
it is much easier and less likely to tear up the CV joint

My 2004 alero is making a humming sound on passenger side i jacked it up found cv joint in back at tran is loose. Does that mean it's bad


Yes. That would be the inner cv joint but the entire cv shaft should be replaced. The labor is the same if you are just replacing a boot, so most all cv joints are serviced this way now. The shaft generally costs under $100 and may take a couple hours to replace. There is a seal that should also be replaced at the same time. Left and right sides are different.

I'm hearing a clicking noise from front passenger tire when I turn


probably a bad passenger CV joint on the axle. You can purchase a completely rebuilt half shaft cheaper than you can replace one CV joint.

Ive replaced the cv shaft but the noise is still their...any ideas?


Have you checked the front wheel bearings? I've seen similar problems on several front wheel drive cars. On my first experience, we also started by changing the CV joints only to find it did not solve the problem. We then though it was a transmission problem.... wrong again. Finally checked the front wheel bearings (Both sides) and found the passenger side was making the noise. Bearing replaced (not cheap by the way) but solved the problem.

How to change cv joints


I would replace the complete axle assembly,
it would be cheaper and come with a warranty.

Instructions
  1. Remove the CV Joint
    • Remove the boot straps from the CV joint using a standard screwdriver or a pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
    • Slide the boot back over the interconnecting shaft.
    • Get Chevrolet Info at InsideLine Free News, Videos, Photos & More!
      Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.

    • Pull the CV joint assembly from the interconnecting shaft to force the snap ring at the top of the shaft through the CV joint assembly.
    • Tilt the inner cage (the cage holding the balls in place inside the housing) in different angles to remove the six balls. Use your thumb or a hammer and a wooden dowel, if necessary.
    • Tilt the inner cage enough to remove it from its housing.
    • Rotate the race inside the cage--the part that holds the balls against the inner cage--and remove the race from the cage.
      Replace the CV Joint
      • Apply a thick coat of grease to the new CV joint race using special high temperature/high pressure grease (see Tips below).
      • Install the race inside the new cage. Then install the cage/race assembly inside the CV joint housing.
      • Tilt the cage at different angles and fit the new balls in place.
      • Slide a new CV joint rubber boot over the interconnecting shaft.
      • Install a new snap and stop ring on the interconnecting shaft.
      • Push the interconnecting shaft through the CV joint assembly to force the snap ring through the assembly.
      • Apply a thick coat of CV joint grease to all moving parts of the assembly.
      • Apply a coat of CV joint grease to the inside of the rubber boot. Then slide the boot over the CV joint assembly.
      • Install the boot straps at each end of the boot, and tighten the straps using a clamp tool or screwdriver, depending on the type of clamp.

Dihatsu charade 1995 auto. How do I replace the cv joint


Hi,
the quickest way, and usually the cheapest. is to check for someone that specialises in drive shaft repair. It is usually more expedient and cheaper, to have the complete drive shaft assy, complete with CV joint replaced as a unit assembly.

Based on my own experience, replacing a drive shaft CV joint is a false economy. It is so much quicker pulling the complete shaft and fitting a new / rebuilt unit.

However, I do hasten to say, it's a personal choice.

Good luck.
