You would first have to remove and brake caliper bolts and shock absorber mounting bolts. Don't forget the tie rod end also. Once removed, loosen axle lock nut and pull out axle completely. Remove snap ring located at the end of the shaft that connects iwth the transmission. Use snap ring remover. Pull out first the bearing making sure to remember how to reinstall again. Then you have access to the boots. Follow the guides for the boots upon installation. Repeat in reverse order the assembly.

Hi my Hyundai Accent makes a clunk noise sometimes when going round a corner. It's not every time. Any ideas? It has just passed it's MOT last month and it wasn't doing it before the MOT.


If it makes a clunk-clunk-clunk sound while turning, it's your front CV joint that's bad. Check to see if the front CV rubber boot is ripped/torn, on either side of the car. The CV boots are located inside/behind the wheels, where the drive axle hooks up to the wheel. If damaged, you will probably have to replace the entire CV axle.

Have clicking noise on drive side by wheel.


Check for rips in cv boots. If ripped & leaking out grease,it is also letting in dirt which acts like sandpaper. Then cv joint or shaft will need to be replaced. Also check for play in wheel bearings.

Noise around the wheels of my corolla 2007


'Clunky' noises around the front wheels especially when turning indicates worn Universal 'CV' joints: this can sometimes be minimized by greasing the CV joints. This is a common condition if the CV joints rubber covers or 'boots' are split: if you don't need to replace the CV joints yet, you will need to replace the damaged boots with what are called 'split' boots.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

My ford ka steering wheel has started to move elipticaly what is wrong


Check your power steering fluid to make sure it is full. Sometimes these require a flush that will flush out entire system from build-up.

Also check undercarriage for any bent bars or ripped boots on cv shaft.

Cv boots or outer rubbers


Hello, the boot kits are only available after market and they are more expensive than what you can get the entire CV axle unit for on ebay if you wait for one to show up. I have bought mine on ebay for about $50 brand new. If you're just worried about the ripped boots, you can make your own with an old inner tube and use hose clamps to seal the ends. So basically its up to you how much money you want to spend. I like to fix things right, but I never overlook a cheap and easy solution to save money.

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.

My van makes clicking noise when going uphill & and sometimes the speeds slows right down and makes noise (clicking under vehicle).


Could be front CV axles making that noise. Check out the rubber cv boots going from the transmission to the center of the front wheels, If the boots are ripped or cracked, replace the cv axles on both sides.

Shakes badly when it reaches 30mph


could be bad hub bearings, or cv axles. If the cv boots are ripped, replace the entire axles, both sides. if the cv boots are still intact then I would replace only the hub bearing assemblies.
