Front left vibrates when accelerating is it a ball joint or a cv shaft


Most likely the axle needs to be replaced, if it only vibrates on accel. . A ball joint doesn't know if you are accelerating or not.

I have honda city 1994 model, pls advice me on how to change front wheel axle/cv joint/boot thanks madaan


  • Loosen the lug nuts (turning counter-clockwise) to finger tight on the front wheel with the damaged CV joint. Buy, borrow or rent a CV nut socket. Some auto parts stores will sell you one for about $30 and refund your money when you return it. Because the CV nut in the center of the wheel hub is locked in place with a safety tab, it is loosened initially with a long breaker bar or a hollow pipe placed over the ratchet handle to increase the torque needed to break the nut free. Loosen to finger tightness.
  • 2 Set safety brakes and jack up the front of the car toward the side of the damaged CV joint using at least a 2 1/2-ton jack. Both the car and the jack should be on a hard, level surface and the lifting point must be a load-bearing member on the chassis or engine cradle. Place two jack stands under the front end and slowly lower the car onto the jack stands so the car chassis is fully resting on the stands. Now, pull out the jack and move it out of the way.
  • 3 Remove the wheel lug nuts and pull off the wheel from the hub. If it doesn't cooperate, kick the bottom of the tire sidewall with the back of your heel or the flat of your hand to dislodge it. Unscrew the center CV nut. To dislodge the male spline outboard end of the CV joint that fits into the female spline in the back of the wheel hub, take the CV nut and screw it back on three or four turns, then strike it with a hammer to partially disengage the splines.
  • 4 Remove the ball joint stud on the lower control arm from its socket in the spindle behind the wheel hub, after you remove a locking bolt, cotter pin or other device that holds the ball joint stud that protrudes from the lower control arm. Then, wedge a pry bar (called a pickle fork) between the tie rod and sway bar. To gain greater leverage, insert the pry bar handle into a length of pipe and apply downward pressure to remove the ball joint stud from the spindle.
  • 5 Remove the CV joint and shaft. With the lower ball joint disconnected from the wheel spindle, the hub can be moved to the side just enough to remove the outer CV joint from the spindle socket in the back of the wheel hub. Do not stretch the brake line that is attached to the wheel brake cylinder as you move the hub aside. With the outboard end of the shaft free of the wheel, pull the shaft straight out from the transmission housing. Because of the labor involved with repairing or replacing CV joints, it's more cost effective to simply replace the entire shaft assembly including the two CV joints and boots.
  • 6 Install the new shaft and CV joint assembly. Clean the transmission seal that came off the old unit; pack it with grease and place it over the inboard spline of the new unit before inserting new shaft into transmission. Make sure splines are lined up before tapping the other end of the shaft with a hammer to seat it in its socket. Carefully insert the other end of the shaft back into the wheel hub and loosely thread on the new CV bolt that came with the assembly.
  • 7 Reinstall the ball joint stud into the spindle by re-inserting the pry bar between the tie rod and the sway bar and leveraging down the lower control arm with the ball joint stud positioned just under the spindle hole. Then release pressure on the pry bar so the ball joint stud re-seats into the spindle. Push the wheel hub all the way onto the shaft spline to seat and torque down the CV nut tight. With a flat head screwdriver tap the lip of the new CV nut into the groove cut into the screw end. Now, re-attach the ball joint locking bolt, put the tire back, replace lug nuts and tighten. Remove the car from the jack stands and finish tightening the tire lug nuts.

    Need to remove a cv axle fro 2000 mazda milliniem. any tricks


    no tricks only work,but its easy as 123, you need to carefully jack the car up and put a stand under the car for support, take off the big nut in the center of the rotor, then remove the rotor, then remove the 2 bolts and nuts that is supporting the shock, then pull the knuckle forward, then remove the lower ball joint bolt and nut, you might have to pry the knuckle open at the bottom to take off the knuckle from the lower ball joint, then pull the knuckle upwards, after that pull the cv joint axle outwards, you might need to pry the drive shaft from the transmission, drive shaft is the same as the cv joint shaft

    What's involved in changing a cv joint in a 2000 Rav 4? I have very good mechanical abilities & have changed cv joints before (about 10 years ago)


    Easy enough job really, jack car up, put axel stand under. remove wheel - remove hub nut, remove pinch bolt - prise open the pinch bolt part (sorry cant rem name) pop out the hub from the lower arm. Remove CV join from drive shaft. Usually a tap will pop it out.. sometimes theres a circlip that need removing (models vary). Grease up new CV joint - put grease in new boot, pop boot over drive shaft. put cv join on (replace circlip if provided in kit). join cv to hub - attach CV boot fully. fasten hub nut, replace wheel.

    done. might need tracking again or aligning once you do this.

    Need instructions to replace front passengers side cv joint


    Do yourself a favor and replace the whole cv shaft. Quicker, eaiser and not much money. First get the car in the air and remove the wheel. Then pop the lower ball joint. This is done by unbolting it from the knuckle and using a ball joint seperator fork and a hammer. Then remove the spindle nut on the end of the cv shaft. You push down on the lower A arm pulling the ball joint out of the knuckle and push the cv shaft out of the hub. Once these are dislogged, you can movel the strut and hub out of the way and pull the cv shalt out of the trans axle. Push the new one in and reverse what you did.

    Cv joint on driver side needs replacing


    Hi there. You really need to replace the whole cv saft on the side that is noisy. Changing just the joint is possible but requires pulling the shaft anyway and is not very probable since the cost and extra labor are as much as buying a new shaft. In either case you will pull your front wheel and brake assembley off the culprit side. Once this is done, you will need to seperate the lower controlarm from the hub via the lower ball joint. This can be done with prybars, but its hard and you will probably rip the rubber boot on the balljoint so its best to use a balljoint press available in many autoparts stores rent-a-tool programs. Once the ball joint is removed you should be able to pull the hub assembley out tword you enough to remove the cv shaft splines from the hub. If you do not have enough room, you may need to seperate the tie rod end as well. You can use the ball joint press for this as well. Once the splined end of the shaft is free of the hub, take a pry bar and find a place on the other end of the shaft where you can pry it out away from the transmission. Sometimes this requires giving it a quick **** to pop it out but there are no bolts or anything holding it. Do becareful not to put the prybar against any breakable components. Once shes out put your new one in the trans and shove it until it clicks in. Put the outer end into the hub before reconnecting the ball joint other wise your not likley to get it in and will have to seperate the joint again. After that you just put ypur brakes and stuff together and you are good to go.
