Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I just had my CV axles replaced on my 96 maxima. I tried to get it inspected and was rejected for the bellow boot. Does this have anything to do with axles and how much is THIS one going to cost me? Please help!

The bellows boot is the rubber accordian like shaped piece that protects the axle from water and debris entering into the axle, which is covered in grease, and prevents the axle from premature wear. This should have been take care of when the CV axles were replaced. (if it is indeed the bellows boot for the CV axle.)

Just replace a CV axle on a 92 Maxima went to test drive it and it wouldn't go into gear and felt like the shaft was just spending making a grinding sound


Check the inner CV make sure that it's inserted into the transaxle and locked in.
(you might want to pull it out and inspect the end of the spline first)

On a 88 Maxima there is a leak from a broken seal or gasket behind drivers front tire.


You should be able to tell if the leak is
from inside the steering rack bellows (Boot)

If you see there is--- no fix-- as the rack is rebuilt in a factory
not serviced on car.

May just be a leaking steering hose

Next to the tire is the drive axle boot & just grease inside
Unfortunately you have to remove the axle to clean cv joint
add new grease & boot kit or 90% of the time replace the
axle as dirt has ruined it

1997 Pathfinder How do you replace the left outer cv boot?


How to Replace a CV Boot
( DIY Complexity: Hard / Time: 3.2 hours )

Parts:
1. CV Boot
2. CV Boot Clamp Kit

Tools:
1. Mallet Hammer
2. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Combination Wrench Set
4. Floor Jack
5. Flashlight
6. Flat Head Screwdriver
7. Socket Set
8. Tire Iron

Steps:
Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a level surface, making sure the vehicle will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Lift up the front of the vehicle using a jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn the wheel lug nuts counter clockwise. Remove the front wheels.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the CV boot for damage.
o Tip: The CV joint may be worn if the boot is damaged. Thoroughly inspect the CV joint assembly before installing the new boot. If the CV joint is damaged, replace the entire CV joint axle assembly.

Step 6 Mark the axle for installation reference. Remove the CV joint axle assembly.

Step 7 Using a bench vise, hold the shaft of the CV joint secure so that you can separate the CV joint from the shaft. Remove the CV boot clamps.

Step 8 Slide the CV boot off the outer CV joint.

Step 9 Using a rubber mallet, knock the CV joint off of the axle shaft.

Step 10 Remove the old boot from the CV axle shaft and wipe off any old grease. Clean the sealing surface on the CV joint.

Step 11 Fill the CV joint with grease and get it ready to slide back onto the shaft.

Step 12 Slide the new boot onto the shaft but do not tighten the inner clamp yet. Install a new retaining clip before putting the joint and axle together.

Step 13 Slide the CV joint back onto the axle shaft completely.

Step 14 Pack the boot with grease and slide the boot over the CV joint housing. Secure the boot with new clamps.

Step 15 Install the CV joint and axle back into the vehicle in the reverse order that it was removed.

Step 16 Mount the wheel back onto the hub assembly.

Step 17 Tighten lug nuts in a star pattern and torque to suggested manufacturer specifications in the vehicle owner’s manual.

Step 18 Remove jack stands.

Step 19 Lower vehicle with jack until it is securely on the ground.

Step 20 Drive the vehicle to make sure that any noises are no longer present and that there are no indications of wearing parts. Before road testing, visually inspect the area you have worked on to make sure everything is tightened and assembled properly.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

Cv joint disassemble to install boot


I wouldn't disassemble the axle and install a new boot. 90% of the time if you've failed a boot, the axle has also been damaged, and with the low cost of off the shelf replacement axles, PLUS the time savings you can get by swapping in an entire reman axle, it's not worth the efort. Trust me. I do 10 a week.

Turning left makes a knocking noise


HI. The first thing i recommend is to check the power steering fluid. If its at a proper level, this may be a more serious issue with the steering rack(assembly). A common issue that will cause the knocking during the turn sequence can be the CV boot and joint assembly. the CV boot merely holds the grease around the CV joint itself. The knocking sound is probably from the CV joint. If the boot fails, the joint runs dry and shortly after that, the joint fails. Preventive maintenance would be to inspect the boots and replace if damaged before the joints are damaged.

Please rate and god bless.

Rack/Bellow Boot Replacement


if you are talking about the steering rack boots, you cam just take a hacksaw and make a small cut right behind the locking nut on the inner tie rod ond shaft. The nut that you need to loosen a bit to take the outer tie rod end off. make a small cut right behind it, so you can see where to stop wit it when you put the whole assemble/boots back on. That would be what I would do, if I didn't want to get it aligned after. It will be close enough, but I would keep an eye on your tires to make sure, they are not wearing off faster than normal. If you talking CV boots, different procedure. Let me know.
