First thing is to find out the large nut size at the end of the axle ( I cant remember what mine was,like 20 something millimeters) You will need a 3 to 4 foot breaker bar to slide over your 1/2" drive ratchet handle and socket to take that nut off.Do this while the car is still on the ground,it helps to hold the wheel still.Also loosen the wheel lug nuts slightly.
Then jack the car up on the side your doing and set it highish on a good jack stand. Take the lug nuts off and remove the wheel.I think at this point I took the disk brake caliper and the pads out of the way and pulled off the brake rotor. Then take the nut and bolt off the lower ball joint.Use your breaker bar to pry down on the lower control arm. Be careful not to hurt,bend or pinch any thing.With the arm down ( the ball joint will come out of the hole) Pull the disk brake mounting metal with the axle bearing out over the end of the drive axle.The axle should pull out,be careful the trans has an axle seal there. Be prepaired for transmission fluid to run out and make a mess. Dont for get to refill the trans when your done.
Its been a while since I did mine so you can fill in anything else.I think I told you what you need to know.
Put the car in the shade and the jack stand on solid support.Dont be in a hurry.And tighten the axle nut till it stops when the car is back on the ground.
I hope this helps you.

How to replace a CV joint on drive side of a 97 Buick Avenue


Do youself a favor and replace the whole halfshaft. Disconnect lower control arm from spindle, remove axle nut move strut spindle outward from bottom, pop axle from transaxle, sometimes it takes a prybar to get it to move. ( be careful of axle seal). Fluid will run out. Compare new halfshaft to old one if ok push into transaxle till fully engaged then re-assemble

How to remove the front left axel shaft on a 1993 buick park ave.


Basically, jack up the vehicle and support it on jack stands, remove the nut on the end of the axle, outer tie rod end and ball joint. Split the tie rod end and ball joint from the spindle assembly. Gently tap the end of the axle to loosen from the wheel bearing assembly. Once loose pull the spindle assembly outward while pushing in on the end of the axle. Once the axle is free from the spindle housing. Will need to apply gentle pressure on each side on the inside CV joint to get the axle to release from the transmission. There is usually a "C" snap clip on the end of the axle in the transmission which may make it a little stubborn to get out. Be sure to not damage the seal where the axle goes into the transmission or you will have a leak

How do I replace cv boot on a buick park ave


The boot you need to replace is call OUTER CV BOOT.

The quickest way to inspect is to drive it in low speed (UNDER 10 mph) tight left and right turns.

If you hear clicking sound then the CV shaft is bad.

It's also depending on how long the CV boot been crack.

===
If you decide to go ahead on the job then please observe safety and use jack stands to fully support the front end.

Remove wheel,cotter pin,retainer cap and larger axle nut.

Make alignments markings on the strut tower and steering mount so your front end will able to put back to alignment.

You will need an able body to do the following.

Remove the large lower strut bolts and swing the strut off the CV.

DO NOT ROCK THE CAR!!!

Clean off the outer CV.

Install boot,grease and the two bands.

Line up the strut and steering yoke marks

repack bearings,lock nut,cap,cotter pin,wheel.


Drive the car in low speed for 1 miles with tight turns.

Do a quick inspection to make sure the CV boot is sitting perfectly on the CV.
