Where is toyota constant velocity u-joint located


Like all front-drive cars using CV joints, there are 4 CV joints on the car near the engine. The vehicle has 2 axles (left and right, driving the corresponding front wheel). Each axle has 2 joints, one on each end. Typically the outer CV joints fail first, as their range of movement is greater due to steering the vehicle.

In modern practice the entire left or right axle is replaced when a CV joint goes bad.

Constant Velocity joints and U-joints perform a similar function, but are not really the same thing. U-joints are more typically used on rear-drive or truck-based 4WD vehicles.

I have a 1988 Subaru L Series Touring Wagon with a busted CV Joint, i have the new part but not sure how to fix.........Is it a difficult job? Do you know where i could find a free guides or directions on...


If you are replacing the CV joint itself, you have spent too much money for one, and are in for more work than needed. I own a 1993 Subaru Loyale Wagon, front wheel drive (converting to four). I had to replace both sides when I got it, and it is so much easier to replace the drive axles rather than the CV joint. I suggest returning the part, and purchasing the entire drive axle. The drive axle will require the same steps : Remove brake system, knock out pin in drive axle near tranny, and pull the drive axle out. Insert new drive axle, replace pin (if new one is not provide, this is okay.) and re-assemble brake system.
If this is not feasable for you to do, and replacing the CV joint is your only option, then go to the the auto parts store and ask for a CHILTONS manual for your car.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Driving my 1988 subaru GL wagon theres a grinding and rubbing noise coming from the back. it also had my engine smelling like burnt oil. I put transmission oil in it, greased my bearings, greased my C/V...


My L series throws grease up onto the exhaust pipes causing the smell, so you could have split boots on your CV joints. That could account for the smell. The noise could be coming from a rear brake, something in drum like an auto adjuster come adrift If you do have damaged CV joint boots, you will need to have them replaced immediately or you will wear these joints out very quickly.

I have a 1999 isuzu 4wd rodeo 6 cylinder and was wondering if Need to install a new boot kit or if I need to replace the entire front left cv axle shaft. I had a tear in my rubber boot and noted some...


Do not try to get the cv axle out ot the axle housing. It is a major operation. Remove boot and disconnect the inner cv joint and save about five hours of time. The choice is yours ,boot or reman cv axle. You will need to take the reman. axle apart to install it though and some new clamps. Not a simple operation.

I need yo know how to replace the cv joint and


remove axle nut,seperate balljoint from control arm,usually a good whack with a hammer on the control arm near the balljoint will free it,pry control arm down to remove knuckle assy, remove roll pin from inner axle joint now you can remove axle,most of the time the inner joint boot tears this is called the d-o-j {double offset joint} replace this boot as well,my suggestion is consider replacing axle with reman depending on mileage 100k or more.remember when reinstalling axle splines need to be lined up on inner shaft so roll pin goes in without problem good luck

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?


I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.

Subaru cv axle noise?


Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.
