Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

I need help with Axles for 2001 Hyundai Elantra. The Left Axle rubber cover is broken, also I heard noise when the wheel moves iether left or right turn when the car is leaving or entering a parking box. Also, there is a leak at the transmission box and the Front Right Axle, where the seal is attached. Do I have to replace both the whole Axles or replace some partial parts of the Axles... plus how many seal do I have to purchase to replace it both for my Elantra? Pardon me for the lack of knowledge... My mechanic had suggested to buy new Axles.

    Thank you 'drdemon' for your recommendation and expertise, in how to get solve the problem with the Front Axles of my 2001 Hyundai Elantra. I appreciate you responded quickly. I believe would be better to get replaced both axles, and not waiting 'till the other axle get damaged too, anyway the car is only eight years old. Again, thanks a lot. (nicoya)

I hear a thumping noise when going around curves, especially when the wheel is being turned to the left for a left hand curve. No noise whatsoever on a straight away. Dealership has replaced left wheel...

hmmm need a look myself here as i think they employ monkeys and not mechanics or they have not replaced anything at all ,most common reason for this noise is the drive coupling nearest the wheel end ,never heard of a diff unit causing this noise unless ?? the drive shaft is too long and its its pushing on the diff unit or the track control arm is too short from a different model which would have the same result ,no i do feel this is a drive coupling and they are taking you for a ride on the cost of all this work

I need to replace a transaxle seal on my 2001 elantra

If you do a youtube search for backyard mechanic and 2001 hyundai elantra axle, you will get an excellent (if not a bit back woods) step-by-step instruction on replacing the drive axle, including some very nice tips specific to the Elantra along the way. Then, when you get the drive axle out of the way, you will see the seal right there. You can pry the old one out with a screwdriver (be VERY careful not to damage the metal walls of the transmission... only pry against the rubber of the old seal) and then install the new seal. I've found a board works well to install the new seal... place the seal against the transmission, place one end of the board over the seal and tap it with a hammer. Rotate the board and tap again. Increase the force of the hammer and keep rotating until you get it nicely in place. The more contact with the seal (ie wider board) the better. Then follow his instructions to reassemble and you're done! Oh, and have a good close look at the rubber boots on the axle while you're at it... or you may be back in replacing the axles in no time. Good luck!

Clicking noise down by the front tires.

check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in

Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.
