replace your cv axel more then likely when you got it stuck you ripped the rubber boot that hold all the ball bearings into place and that's what caused the bearings to fall out so now when you put it into gear you have the inter shaft turning but nothing to help turn the outer shaft
look carefully as its early in the morning here and not quite with it but i seem to remember that the plastic cover at the back clips off then a star headed screw to remove the unit ,but check for a feed first once the gubbins are exposed as often the feed wire is trapped in the rubber boot and gets damaged
lose the central nut of your wheel first,remove the brake caliber loose two bolts holding your suspension arm in one peace and the lower arm bolt and loose the steering arm ball joint pull the hub up and the shaft out is one peace ,loose rubber boot clean housing and look in side you have sir clip with two holes one on etch site remove it with sir clip players grease the joint fit the new boot good luck.
Boots only need replaced when they have been negated and are leaking grease. However, the time effort and money to replace just one boot when the other is right there might bite you if the other boot needs replaced in the near future. However, if upon inspection the boot is not torn, worn and the knuckle still performs well you do not need to replace that boot.
this is the sign of a failing outer CV joint in the drive shaft. look under car at driveshaft. the rubber boot around CV joint is probably torn. This allows lube to fling out and water to come in, contaminating the CV joint. Replace the entire drive shaft instead of replacing only the outer CV joint.
it usually signifies a broken CV joint. check the drive shaft for the left side. the outer rubber boot is probably torn, this allows grease out and contaminants in. It is wise to replace the drive shaft as an assembly instead of just replacing the outer CV joint- they usually come with a lifetime warranty.
Hello, the boot kits are only available after market and they are more expensive than what you can get the entire CV axle unit for on ebay if you wait for one to show up. I have bought mine on ebay for about $50 brand new. If you're just worried about the ripped boots, you can make your own with an old inner tube and use hose clamps to seal the ends. So basically its up to you how much money you want to spend. I like to fix things right, but I never overlook a cheap and easy solution to save money.
