THE CV JOINT SHAFT HAS A SNAP RING THAT HOLDS THE SHAFT IN THE TRANSMISSION. IF THIS WAS DAMAGED OR YOU DID NOT PUSH THE SHAFT IN FAR ENOUGH FOR THE RING TO SNAP INTO PLACE IT WILL FLOAT OUT.

The CV joint has nothing to do with the brakes you probably put something back wrong because you had to remove the Caliper and Brake pads.
The CV joint you probably never replaced the C clip which keeps the shaft spline from going out into the hub. The CV joint also has to be synchronized. Which means they have to line up on both sides. Most will mark the shaft first, before removing.

How does a cv joint drive shaft goes bad


cv joints are covered with a plastic/rubber boot to keep the road dirt out and lubricating grease in''the inner works of a cv joint are an alloy metal with honeycomb chambers for the joint bearings to fit inside of..do this.. take your left hand and make a fist..then fit the fist into the spread open fingers of the right hand ..rotate both hands together back and forth..your ncv axle turns in much the same way..when dirt gets into the joint due to cover failure..this joint wears out because it has engine torque(twisting) pressure on it while moving..along with grit and dirt grinding away at both the metal and the bearings inside causing lots of slop in the joint..now if the engine torque becomes too strong for the worn out chambers in the joint, they will break..remember they arent steel,,they are alloy..thus rendering the joint unuseable ( slip your left hand inside the right between the fingers to grt the idea.. thats what the cv joint on your car is doing...so replacement is necessary..its not an easy job since most cars front suspension is opened up during this proceedure,,,car is ten years old do you feel that its worth the money? call for rates first...good luck and repost findings thnx

1993 makes a clanking sound and shimmies when steering to rights. Is that a CV joint or boot problem?


The clank (or more of a sharp clink) would indicate that your CV joint is bad on that side. The boot on the joint protects it against road dirt, etc. If the boot itself is torn, that's another indication that the CV joint is in trouble. Best to have it checked soon.
Hope this is helpful.

Mechanical knocking or clicking noise during lowspeed turns 1996 840 wagon


It is a front-wheel-drive car, right? It sounds like the CV joints are starting to go bad. CV joints connect the driveshafts of the engine to the front axles: they are basically very fancy versions of traditional 'U-joints' found on rear-drive cars. They are protected by a big rubber boot, which eventually gets ripped or whatever, then dirt gets in, which starts to grind away at the joint. It's probably $500 to replace the CV joints, maybe more on a Volvo. The good thing is, the sound will get much, MUCH worse before it actually falls apart and leaves you stranded. So you have some time before you HAVE to get it repaired.

Good Luck!

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

How do u tell if cv joint needs replaced


If you are hearing a clanking sound when driving you probably need to replace your CV joint.  One thing that you can look at is the CV boot.  If you are hearing noises coming from the CV joint, your boot is more than likely cracked or ripped completely.  The boot is directly behind the wheel and is easy to see if you turn the wheel all the way to the right or left.  Sounds like you need new CV joints though.

Clanking noise under front drivers side - small bumps and turns...


CV joints yes look at the rubber boots for damage. You can get a replacement boot but if you do remove all the old grease to remove any dirt that is cousing your problem.

Grinding noises when 4x4 is engaged


Most likely wheel bearing or cv joint issue. look for a ripped open cv boot. I believe that year used cv joints instead of regular u-joints. Hope I helped. Thanks
