Question about 2003 Kia Sedona
I removed the passenger side cv joint. the metal end and the spline stayed inside and wont come off.
Try to get a pry bar or large screwdriver between the CV housing and the transmission case. A little force may be required, but you have to pop the housing out of the transmission. A c-clip in a groove on the splined shaft is holding the shaft in, and must be popped outward, for the housing and shaft to be removed.

SOURCE: cv joints
Have them replace the entire axle with a rebuilt for aound $70-100 cost. After they buy the CV and the boot kit, you will be close to that amount ... and they will still have to get the joint off the boot on, the cv on and attach the boot to the joint and shaft ... sometimes these boot kits don't fit right .. and they haven't done many and may not realize it doesn't fit right!

most likely a wheel bearing. to determine which one, lift up the car so wheels are in the air. grab onto the strut spring, and spin the wheel. You should fell roughness in your hand on the wheel that is bad, the good wheel will fell smooth.

most likely the bearings in the hub are rusted to the axel. If you work at it you can use a point air chisel to push the axel shaft out you will have to replace the bearing in the hub. worst case you could take the hub and axel off together and press the axel out in a press. either way you will have to replace the hub bearing.

Hi Kieth, Yep you just pry them out with a flat large blade (don't use anything sharp and watch out where you put your legs. Remember you have arteries which need protecting. Cussing and swearing loudly helps the work too, especially if you hit a nail on your fingers or thumb. Regards John

Hi Phil, On the Spyder end of the shaft that fits into the gearbox there is a retaining clip. Did you knock it in securely? If you did then a seal may have become damaged when making the replacement. That will need replacement. Regards John
