Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

2 Answers

I have to remove axles/CV joints from 2000 olds Alero 2.4L. I removed the drivers side by prying it out as described in the book I have, no problem, but the passenger side will not budge. Do I pry that side too? Am I missing something? It just seems to be in much tighter. Terry

You will actually need a slide hammer and adapter to remove that side axle.

While it is possible to pry it out with a large enough prybar, it is extremely tight, and the proper removal method (both for ease and safety) is the slide hammer with U-shaped adapter.

If you want to try your local dealer, sometimes they will be nice and rent the tools out for a small fee. The part numbers for the tools are listed int he diagram!

How do you pull the drive shafts out of toyota avalon from the transmission its a front wheel drive


Hello,

Changing these are not to tough actually.
  1. First you need to remove the tire rod ball joint from the spindle. (This is the middle ball joint on the spindle) (the spindle holds the wheel) Remove that bolt.
  2. Now take a mallet and hit the side of the spindle a couple good times and the arm will come loose.
  3. Lift it up and pull it to one side.
  4. Now the next thing to do is remove that lower ball joint.This is the bottom bolt on the spindle. You will need a pry bar and while your hitting the side of the spindle you will pry down until the lower ball joint and the spindle separate. You may need to pry the clamp apart too. This is where you removed that bolt from. This one can be a pain but is necessary.
  5. Next you need to get the get a Axle bolt remover the size of your axle bolt in a 1/2 inch drive.
  6. You will now remove the axle bolt.
  7. Now you you want to tap on the end of the axle rod as you hold onto the spindle and tap the axle lose from the hub.
  8. Once the spindle moves out from the axle then turn the spindle and move it just to one side of the axle.
  9. You should now have full view of the CV axle.
  10. Now get a long pry bar and get back there with the pry bar where the axle connects to the transmission and while prying on that CV axle pull out on it to. It may take a bit of fooling with as they can be stuck in there pretty good but eventually it will pop out of there. A note not to put your face in the path of the CV Axle or it may split your head when it comes popping out of the transmission.
  11. Now the CV Axle is out.
  12. Reverse steps to install new CV Axle.
  13. When you install the new CV axle make sure it goes in the same way it came out and make sure it "clicks" into place real good.
  14. Repeat steps to do the other side.
Regards, Tony

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

Describe your replace front passenger side cv joint 1998 4wd chevy silverado 1500 Problem my front passenger side cv joint is making extremely loud noise, especially while turning. How much can I expect...


CV halfshaft will run you $75 at local autoparts store. Shop labor varies from shop to shop as well as their expertise.
The brake caliper has to be pulled, lower shock bolt removed, upper and lower ball joint seperated (book will say only one but it is not true) and steering knuckle and axle nut removed. CV joint simply unbolts at differential output flange.

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.

If there is no other damage aside from the outer CV joint being out.

1. Jack car up and support on jack stand on the affected side.
2. Remove wheel

12. Reinstall bolt and nut
13. Install hub nut

once the drive axle is out of the bearing use a pry bar and pop the other end of the shaft out of the transmission(give the pry bar a quick snap and it should pop right out
