SOURCE: Have a 2001 Buick LeSabre.

Rasie vehicle, remove tire, axle nut and caliper. remove tie rod end from spindle, remove lower ball joint nut and seperate from spindle and pull spindle from axle, with pry bar pop axle out of trans housing. it is easyer to replace cvc axle than to replace or repair cvc joint.

SOURCE: HOW DO I REPLACE THE INNER CV JOINT BOOT ON A 2001 BUICK CENTUR

I would recommend that you replace the complete axles instead of just the boots. The boots may be busted/worn and when the get torn/busted they allow sand/dirt inside the CV joint and the bearing inside the CV joint become worn, it all depends on how long the boot has been ripped, its easier and a lot less messy to R/I new axle. For the wheel bearings they need to be pressed in by a hydraulic press. As far as the procedure goes you have to elevate the two front wheels and secure by a lift of jack stands, then take off tires and take off brakes/caliper and caliper chair along with the rotors. You have to remove center nut on axles and remove lower ball joint from knuckle assemble/ hub. Then remove bolts holding knuckle/hub to the struts. Pull knuckle from axles and the hub is out. If you don't have a press and the proper tool you can take the two hubs and the bearings to a machine shop and they will press out and pressing new bearing for you. As for the axles they both can then be pulled/pryed out of the transmission at this time and be fixed or replaced. caution look out for leaking transmission fluid when you pull axles out. The axles are only held by licking rings and can be easily pulled or pryed out. Have something ready to catch fluid. Replace axles in the reverse of taking out. use a piece of wood on the end of axle if there is need to tap it back in with a hammer, listen for a click or snap when its goes back in to transmission. Good Luck

SOURCE: front end of buick century shakes when accelerating

A lot of work & a pain in the rear if you don't have the right equipment. The biggest part is squeezing the coil springs and busting out the upper and lower ball joints. If you've never done it before I'd recommend taking it to a shop that has the pneumatic equipment to do the job. This is a real knuckle buster and worth paying somebody else to do it.

SOURCE: when accelerating fast from a stop I hear a

Possible wheel bearing, u-joint, differential noise, or binding cv joint...you really would not know if they are good without removing them from vehicle, or watching the vehicle wheels move while on a lift. very unlikely that it is a motor mount. a single clunk when taking off from a light would most likely be your motor mount. the mounts just stabalize the motor and transmission from shift and torque

I drive a 2001 Buick century custom when i


Do a test with tranny in drive instead of OD/over-drive, does the problem go away? If so I think it is an OD issue.
Check motor mounts and suspension. In the past, I've seen bad shocks cause a noticeable vibration at a certain speed. Below or above that certain speed, no vibration.

When i step on the gas the car vibrates and shakes


Is the engine running smoothly? Does it only vibrate when loaded? If so, then Yes, check the motor mounts. While you or a tech are underneath get your driveline and suspension mounts checked. A bad suspension mount could give the same symptoms. You don't say how many miles but if its anywhere near 100k then mounts are a definite possibility.

Shaking accelerates


Does it have a vibration when idleing? If it has both, it is most likely the motor mounts. Either way it is a very easy thing to do. Make sure the car is in Park with the e-brake set. Pop the hood and have someone press the accelerator pedal, does the whole engine move (usually in a tilting motion)? If so the motor mounts may be bad.

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.
