    thank you,,, the problem was that I took the cv joint to a local shop to change the dust cover, and they told me that the cv end that goes in the transmission was worn, so they installed another one that was one quarter of an inch shorter than the original one,,, I just got another cv end and is working perfectly..

SOURCE: CV joint replacement

Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!

SOURCE: Front end popping when stopping at slow speeds

Check the cv joints behind each front tire. See if they are torn. Really inspect then. I there is a little crack the dirt can ruin them. Check your brakes and make sure they are not worn down to the indicator.

SOURCE: how do i change the drivers side transaxle in a 1994 dodge carava

To change the CV axle, you have to remove the lower ball joint, remove the axle nut, remove from hub, (you can pull the strut out far enough to do this), and the axle will pull out. Install in reverse order. Sounds like you were trying to remove the transmission.

SOURCE: CV joint noise

this sounds like a normal condition. sorry i cant give a real great technical explanation why, but it is. are you jacking up one side of the vehicle only? you will find that if both wheels are off the ground or if one is still on the ground, it will act completely different. just the way the final drive is set up.

no you dont have to worrie about a gear or anything falling out there is a clip in the tranny that holds the shaft into the tranny so you might have to use a pry bar just dont pry on any kind of seal and the clip will not fall out either have a pan or something ready to catch any oil that may come out when you pull them.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am loud popping noise from front end drivers?


Hey there Chris.

Without actually being there to hear it for myself, I'm going to 'spitball guess' and say it's a good possibility a CV joint is, or has gone bad.

The drive, or CV axles have rubber accordion looking boots on each end of the shaft. One out by the wheel (likely suspect) and one by the the transmission (transaxle).

If the boot gets ripped or damaged it will allow the grease from inside to escape and dirt and water to get inside. Thus ruining the CV joint.

I'm NOT saying for sure this is the problem.

You can check if the boots are damaged or if it looks like grease it splattered from the boot. If it is, at the very least the boot and joint will need replaced.

Actually it's probably going to be less expensive and easier to replace the entire CV shaft rather than installing a single joint and boot.

The 'popping' sound from a CV joint USUALLY shows up when accelerating while the front wheels are turned. That's not always the case, but is pretty common.

The other possibility is the 'popping' is a lower ball joint or a bad upper strut mount.

If the 'pop' happens when hitting a bump then those would be more suspect than the CV joint.

IF that's the case then you may be able to simply bounce that corner of the car to try to make the 'pop' happen while sitting still.

If you can do that then you should be able to detect where the sound is coming from.

Hopes this helps.

Can not get axle out of trans axle, passenger side.


Put a pry bar or large screwdriver between the transaxle case and the CV joint housing, and try to pop the axle out. Be careful of the axle seal in the transaxle case-if distorted, it will need replacing. Shops use a slide hammer with a forked end that fits around the CV joint housing to pop out the axles-if you use a prybar, you can usually pop them out. There is a circlip near the end of the axle splines that fits in a groove inside the transaxle- a little force pushes the circlip out of the groove, and axle is free to come out.

Wheres the volocity joint at the transaxle on a charade


It's what joins the axle into the transaxle. The cpnstant velocity joint is mated to the axle and the end of the CV joint enters the transaxle. The axle has another CV joint on its other end where it connects to the wheel and hub assembly.

Repair CV Joint/transaxle on 2002 Dodge Stratus


you don't have to remove the lower ball joint or even loosen it. Just pop the tie rod off and take out the two strut bolts but be easy it don't jump out and stab the boot, it can come out that way because if you have one in my case the lower control arm ain't coming out very easy.

When I was driving my 1996 Geo Prizm at around 25mph, I heard a popping sound and then the grinding started like it was rubbing metal to metal. When I turn to the right, it sounds louder. I had the brakes...


CV Joint went out. since it gets worse when you turn right it is most likely an inside drivers side CV joint or the out side passenger side. The popping sounds was probably the dust boot popping from pressure build up which should make it simple to locate since you just need to identify the boot with a tear in it.

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.

Mercury Sable makes noise when turning left and backing in? It sounds like a grinding noise.


Sounds like a CV (Constant Velocity) joint. I can't completely solve this for you, but you can re-post with the CV problem. The sound - grinding and or popping - should be coming from only one side of the car - but it could be the inner or outer CV joint on that side. Check the rubber boots around the joints - they are located on each end of the drive shaft on the transaxle. If you have a torn boot, that will probably indicate which joint is bad.
