You aren't giving us a lot of information but if you are referring to the part that makes an increasingly irritating whine as you drive when it starts to go bad, it would be called the axle bearing. That's the only thing that I can think of that would be associated with the axle behind the passenger tire. It sure got my attention in my 1999 Grand Caravan. When they make noise, it means the bearing is going bad / producing a lot more heat than normal. It isn't real hard to change out if you don't let it go too long. It is a complete unit including the bearing, flange and wheel studs. If it goes on too long, it will expand inside the hole that the bearing goes into then it might take a car lift, a torch and sledge hammer to get it out. It happened to me. Good luck. Jeff M.

CV axle shaft replacement

1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.

    Clicking noise down by the front tires.

    check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

    Looking how to lower spare tire on toyota sienna van

    Hello. Welcome to FixYa! Please allow us to assist you.

    The procedure is as follows, to remove the spare tire from a 2WD Sienna:

    Move the passenger seat as far forward as possible.
    Move the passenger side middle seat back as far as possible.
    Obtain your tire tool (the one you would use to remove the lugnuts)
    Observe the carpeting behind the front passenger seat; you will see a small piece of carpet, like a small 'flap', that can be raised.
    Under this flap is a small silver 'bolt'. Fit the lug wrench onto this bolt, and rotate it. This will lower the cable that raises the spare tire up under the area between the passenger front and rear seats.

    Note: 4WD Siennas do not have any spare tires, as they came with 'run-flat' tires. Toyota did not fit a spare on the 4WD units.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

    How do i chage a c/v axle on a hyundai tiburon

    Specifically for 2003 Tiburon V6 6 speed, but may work for you as well.
    -Loosen tire lugs
    -Remove center caps with screw driver or similar tool (careful not to scratch caps)
    -loosen axle nut

    -Jack the car up and place on jack stands
    -Chalk rear wheels
    -finish removing tire lug nuts and tire
    -remove cotter pin and finish removing axle nut
    -remove brake pads
    -remove caliper and brake assembly
    -remove rotor (possible PITA), use extreme caution hammering a stuck rotor!

    *remove 2 bolts from strut mount assembly. This will allow you enough clearance to "cleanly" pull axle out with minimal force/hammering. No axle puller tool necessary and no messing with the lower ball joint.

    -Now gently tap the axle out of the hub assembly
    -pull the rest of the axle out of the hub assembly by hand or pry with long screw driver or pickle fork. Again, since you removed the 2 strut assembly bolts, your hub assembly should have dropped down and away from the axle quit a bit to allow you enough clearance to remove axle from hub assembly

    **Follow next steps for DRIVER SIDE ONLY**
    -Next, place a fluid pan to catch any leaking trans fluid before removing axle from transmission side.
    -Using a long screwdriver or pickle fork, pry the axle away from the transmission
    -Remove entire axle and replace with new one
    -Installation is reverse of removal steps. (not difficult, just line up the splines and everything should "pop" in place

    Have you checked to see if a wheel bearing is seizing on you? May cause the wheel to drag. Or may just be bad luck on our part.

    Changing front passenger axle

    It is fairly simple, Block your wheels and loosen the lug nuts a little, jack your car up until you have the tire off ground, remove tire, remove the center nut on the tire hub. pull the whole assembly uot and away from the car, let the assembly hang down and push to one side, use something to hold it away from work area, fallow shaft until you come to a support, loosen the support. pull, **** hard shaft towards you. it will take a great effort to loosen the shaft but it should pull loose as one piece. get the new one and put it into the same route as the old shaft. look at entry point into the transmmision make sure that the new shaft has been properly seated, you will feel or hear the spline click into place when properly seated. then follow disassembly instructions. Go to the library if you need pictures and detailed step for step instructions. hope this gets you there.

    200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side

    a little tip for sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.
