What is making a cracking sound in the front end of my nissan when you frist move and turn wheeleather way backward or foward


CV joints would be my best guess. You won't hear them if your not turning through you should still hear them anytime you turn cold or warm. Check the outer CV boots, if busted (grease leaking out) that's most likely the problem

2003 nissan altima, replacing cv joint boot covers


In most cases, it is cheaper to install rebuilt axles than have the boots replaced. You also run the risk of having dirt and water in the joints when the boots are installed.

Need to replace outer cv boot. how do i remove the cv joint to get the new boot fitted?


In the real world the boot is put on as the half shaft is assembled. It will cost more to pay a machine shop to take the joint apart and put on a new boot and reassemble than to just go out and buy a new half shaft. And it will cost even less to exchange your unbooted half shaft for a rebuilt one with new boots. And you have to take the half shaft out and put it back in for both scenarios. Lots of work there and an alignment may be in order afterwards as well.

I drove a saturn with a missing boot for two years, the owner before me had wrapped it in duct tape so who knows how long it was gone before I got it. I gave it to my girlfriend and she drove it for another year that way. When I had the front wheel bearings replaced I also did the half shaft since it was all apart but the shaft itself was still good.

If you do not want to spend that much money until failure and you despise duct tape autozone and advance both sell a couple sizes of boot kits. These wrap around the CV joint, are glued to the metal and zip ties are put on each end of the boot. Cleanliness is crucial if the glue is to work.


Good Luck

I want to change the outer cv boots on a 2002 suzuki esteem with Manual tranny. We have take the tranny out as we are going to replace the clutch and release bearing. How should I change the cv boots?


your problem is that the boots are put on as they are assembled, so you need to take the joint apart to put the new boots on. it is cheaper to exchange the entire half shaft for a rebuilt one with new boot than to take them apart and put them back together.

alternatively most parts stores sell a couple different sizes of "split boots". these can be put on as they wrap around. surgical cleanliness is a necessity as they are glued on.

depending on the age of your shafts, you may want to go with new or rebuilt shafts to save yourself repeated labor next year.

1997 Pathfinder How do you replace the left outer cv boot?


How to Replace a CV Boot
( DIY Complexity: Hard / Time: 3.2 hours )

Parts:
1. CV Boot
2. CV Boot Clamp Kit

Tools:
1. Mallet Hammer
2. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Combination Wrench Set
4. Floor Jack
5. Flashlight
6. Flat Head Screwdriver
7. Socket Set
8. Tire Iron

Steps:
Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a level surface, making sure the vehicle will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Lift up the front of the vehicle using a jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn the wheel lug nuts counter clockwise. Remove the front wheels.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the CV boot for damage.
o Tip: The CV joint may be worn if the boot is damaged. Thoroughly inspect the CV joint assembly before installing the new boot. If the CV joint is damaged, replace the entire CV joint axle assembly.

Step 6 Mark the axle for installation reference. Remove the CV joint axle assembly.

Step 7 Using a bench vise, hold the shaft of the CV joint secure so that you can separate the CV joint from the shaft. Remove the CV boot clamps.

Step 8 Slide the CV boot off the outer CV joint.

Step 9 Using a rubber mallet, knock the CV joint off of the axle shaft.

Step 10 Remove the old boot from the CV axle shaft and wipe off any old grease. Clean the sealing surface on the CV joint.

Step 11 Fill the CV joint with grease and get it ready to slide back onto the shaft.

Step 12 Slide the new boot onto the shaft but do not tighten the inner clamp yet. Install a new retaining clip before putting the joint and axle together.

Step 13 Slide the CV joint back onto the axle shaft completely.

Step 14 Pack the boot with grease and slide the boot over the CV joint housing. Secure the boot with new clamps.

Step 15 Install the CV joint and axle back into the vehicle in the reverse order that it was removed.

Step 16 Mount the wheel back onto the hub assembly.

Step 17 Tighten lug nuts in a star pattern and torque to suggested manufacturer specifications in the vehicle owner’s manual.

Step 18 Remove jack stands.

Step 19 Lower vehicle with jack until it is securely on the ground.

Step 20 Drive the vehicle to make sure that any noises are no longer present and that there are no indications of wearing parts. Before road testing, visually inspect the area you have worked on to make sure everything is tightened and assembled properly.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

Where can I find the rubber seals for the ball joints that houses the cv joints on the front axle for a nissan safari ldv '89 model


If you are refering to those corrugated rubber boots, it is highly recommended to replace those CV shafts as the dirt and moisture contamination is not a good thing in CV joints. Dirt and moisture are the leading causes of CV shaft failures. You can by the boots as a repair boot and those wrap around the CV shaft/joint area and bolt together. If you are talking about the little rubber boots on the ball jonts themselves at the end of a steering link, those boots are not sold individually. They only come with new Ball joint assemblies.

Seperate outer cv from axel 99 chevy metro


First, did you check the price difference on a complete axle (saves time and aggravation of doing joint & boot) Most times you can get them apart by just putting the axle in a vise and giving the joint a good smack with a hammer. There is a small clip in the end that you can spread, but you have to look carefully to find it. Most people have a hard time getting the boot to stay on and find it has come off a few weeks after they installed it.
That's why I suggest replacing the entire axle which if far cheaper than they used to be!!!
