    I would suggest a Haynes manual. They are easy to understand and should cover this in step by step detail. Plus at $11 for the book they host a world of good knowledge for later use makes them a great value.

    Hope this is of some help.

This is a simple job that is why it is not very detailed in your book. Nothing special. Do one side at a time so you have a reference to how to reassemble it. Remove your tire , brake calipers be sure not to stress the rubber brake lines or open the brake lines to air. Remove both upper and lower ball joints. When taking out the ball joints remove the cotter pin and bolt and beat the **** out of the joint for it to release. Then the C/V axles will come right out with a bit out encouragement. You will need a few tools wrenches pry bar hammer. I would buy a Chilton's or a Haynes repair manual for torque specs for reassembly. Good luck and take your time. And unless the axles are making noise you can just replace the rubber boots. Which is alot cheaper.

That usually is a worn CV joint. Go to a smooth surface like a parking lot, wind the windows down, and turn slow circles on full lock. If you hear that noise, it is probably the CV joints and not ball joint noise, since you are not going over bumps.
Also look at the CV rubber boots (2 each side) to find any splits in them. Those let grease out and dirt in, and rapidly end the life of a CV joint.

The individual joints can be replaced, but it isn't worth it. If worn out, get a complete re-manufactured front axle each side.

I have a clicking sound when I am turning. Is an immediate repair necessary?

If a front wheel drive vehicle makes a clicking sound when turning it ALMOST ALWAYS means that the CV joint boot has split, lubricant has leaked out and road grime has caused the CV joint to wear.
Examine both CV joints and look for grease that has leaked out.
IF THE BOOT has split, you should have it replaced as soon as possible. Once the ball bearings inside the CV joint wear down in size, they can catch and it's possible that the CV joint can shatter or lock up. Not a good thing if you're moving in traffic.
Yes, take care of that problem right away.

Where does one find a CV boot that is split to provide for easy replacement on a GMC 4x4? Or how does one replace with a standard boot, does the CV Joint seperate from the axle part?

there used to be a split boot but what was the point?? you have to remove the joint to clean the old grease out anyhow, and yes the joint does come off the shaft, remove the entire unit and do it on the bench, put the shaft in a vise and knock the joint off with a soft headed hammer clean it repack it and install the boot with new grease, good luck

CV axle removal 1999 Isuzu Trooper

The easy way is to take the inner boot off and take the joint apart. Take new cv axle apart at inner joint and attach to the old one sticking out of axle housing. You will need to get new boot clamp.

Noise around the wheels of my corolla 2007

'Clunky' noises around the front wheels especially when turning indicates worn Universal 'CV' joints: this can sometimes be minimized by greasing the CV joints. This is a common condition if the CV joints rubber covers or 'boots' are split: if you don't need to replace the CV joints yet, you will need to replace the damaged boots with what are called 'split' boots.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Cut outer cv boot need to replace dont no how

You need a factory replacement will need to take the axle out. The easiest method it to buy a new axle and replace the whole thing, but if you want to go the other way, cut the old boot off and clean up the area free from grease. Then pull the axle all the way over to one side and remove the first ball...repeat this until you have all of the ball bearing out. The axle will now come out. You now can place the new boot on and push it back out of your way to repeat the ball bearing process of putting them in one at a time until all is will need a clamping tool to put the new clamps on. Put your new grease in and slide your boots up to the proper place and clamp them on and put the axle back in. You see why I said it is easier to buy a new one, expecially if you have never done this before, but do not use a split boot won't make it 20 miles and will come apart. OME boot only! Other boots are too soft and will only last 1 year. Good luck!
