Removing a left front axle

I am replacing the left front cv axle in my 2002 mitsubishi lancer. I am unable to seperate the outer cv joint from where it is splined to the hub and bearing. It seems to be rusted together. I have tried an axle puller and also heating it. Is there any special techniques I could try to seperate them or possibly any special tools that would help to seperate them?

You could remove the knuckle, wheel hub, and axle as one, then press it out from there. You will have disconnect the strut, and lower ball joint to remove it. Other than that I can't think of a solution seeing how your axle puller isn't working for you.

Where is toyota constant velocity u-joint located


Like all front-drive cars using CV joints, there are 4 CV joints on the car near the engine. The vehicle has 2 axles (left and right, driving the corresponding front wheel). Each axle has 2 joints, one on each end. Typically the outer CV joints fail first, as their range of movement is greater due to steering the vehicle.

In modern practice the entire left or right axle is replaced when a CV joint goes bad.

Constant Velocity joints and U-joints perform a similar function, but are not really the same thing. U-joints are more typically used on rear-drive or truck-based 4WD vehicles.

Lancer vibrates at 90 to 100 ks at front at front left


bent rim, tires out of balance, worn cv axle, bad wheel bearing, warped brake rotor, bad tire. Change that wheel to the rear, and see if the vibration moves with the wheel. Depending on the vibration, could be a motor/transmisson mount.

Clicking noise when accelarating


It sounds like you may have a bad CV joint. This is located under the front of the car - it is the transaxel to drive the car with front wheel drive. There are two of them - right and left. It is most likely the left CV joint or the drive axle. You should consult a technician if you are not familiar with the process of checking and changing CV joints.

How do I get the cv joint seperated from the shaft of the axel because i need to do that to place a new cv boot on?


To replace the outer boot on this shaft you have to first remove the inner joint from the shaft, then remove the outer joint boot from the shaft and joint by sliding it back down the shaft. Do not remove the outer CV joint from the shaft. I believe you have to replace the entire axle shaft if it is removed as it's not made to be removed and reinstalled. I would actually suggest replacement of the entire shaft instead of just the boot anyway unless you were lucky enough to catch a leaking boot as soon as the boot went bad as it takes such a very small amount of road grit to start the damage that will eventuall wear out the joint and then you have to take the axle out again. [just my opinion as over the years I've seen dozens of bad boots cause joints to fail a short time later] Hope this helps out a bit and good luck!

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.

Seperate outer cv from axel 99 chevy metro


First, did you check the price difference on a complete axle (saves time and aggravation of doing joint & boot) Most times you can get them apart by just putting the axle in a vise and giving the joint a good smack with a hammer. There is a small clip in the end that you can spread, but you have to look carefully to find it. Most people have a hard time getting the boot to stay on and find it has come off a few weeks after they installed it.
That's why I suggest replacing the entire axle which if far cheaper than they used to be!!!
