Removing/Replacing the cv shaft is not as much work as it looks.
Take the wheel off, take the axle nut (36 mm) off, undo the lower ball joint (21 mm) and then undo the 6 bolts on the inboard side of the shaft (12 mm 12 point bolts) and then pull down on the inboard end of the shaft. (it may be necessary to hit the end of the bolt with a hammer) remove the splined end from the wheel hub and remove from vehicle (it is possible if a bit tricky to get the shaft out without taking anything else apart, just don't give up too easily. It is often easier and cheaper to just buy a refurbed CV shaft than it is to replace a torn boot by itself. A new boot from the dealer is over $150, a remaned shaft from Pepboys is about $75.

99 ford ranger cv axle popping out

I get the impression the cv joint has broken up. Jack up the side that's noisy and check hub for wheel bearing movement and then remove the boot clip and peek inside. I don't think it sounds very happy. It may be simpler and cheaper to get a whole shaft if the current one is badly damaged. Its not a major task but would need the radius arm joints split to allow the hub to swing away enough to release the shaft. Be prepared for the front diff to leak oil when removing the shaft unless its flange mounted on a ring of small bolts. Don't drive it until its fixed, you risk a wheel lock up which is not good news.

Make noises when I turn the Volant for turn

CV joint replacement is necessary. Quick check...commonly if you look under the car at the axles (both sides) going to the front wheels, you will see rubber boots covering the CV joints (2 on each side) that will be cracked or split open. These dry out or wear and will leak out all the lubricant. These are normal wear and tear parts like brakes. Most repair shops will check them for free. Typically about $150 each side by a shop or about $50 each side for DIY'r. Best of luck in resolving this problem.

2007 ford fusion awd v-6 driveline or suspension area or assembly makes a noise (possibly a bearing) when car is in motion. When not moving and motor is running, there is no noise. Appears to be coming...

It sounds to be a Constant Velocity Joint (CV JOINT)...You can look under the car at the ft.axles nd inspect the cv joint rubber boots...Normally they will split from wear or road debree and through the grease out making the bearings go bad...However some will go bad without the boot being torn...If that is the case it is best to replace the whole axle when determining which side it is.....Hope this helps..Check all components for looseness ...You really need to put it on a lift and check it.......Metalpoet

How do you replace the inner cv boot on a 2005 ford f150 4x4

To do it the right way you have to take the shaft out, take the CV joint apart, put on a new boot and reassemble. Costs more to do that than to buy a new shaft. Parts stores carry two sizes of generic split boots which you can put on to do the keep junk out of the joint job until the joint goes and justifies the cost of a new shaft. Involves super glue and hose clamps.

94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).
