How do you get a cd shaft out of a 1998 plymouth vouyager


Assuming you are actually talking about a CV axle, Jack and secure vehicle. Remove wheel. Drop the lower control arm by bolt or ball joint, remove the large nut on the axle with a large impact.
(do the nut before the suspension drop)
Pull the spindle hub off the end of the shaft to free the axle end. Then when clear pull the shaft straight out of the transaxle. There may be bolts to remove if it is a two piece shaft. 3 or 4 bolts on the shaft near the transaxle. take those out and remove shaft.

Can you remove the driver side cv axle from a 2005 Chevy asteo van AWD permenanlry


The CV axle stub (end with the axle nut on it) supports the wheel bearing, removing the axle then driving on it would cause the bearing to wear prematurely. I would not recommend this. The front differential is also sealed by the cv assembly, removing it would cause the diff fluid to leak out . CV shafts for this van run $50-80. I would replace if it is bad, instead.

Change a cv boot on a 1996 isuzu trooper


First their are two different front axles in 1996 troopers. Isuzu changed the 4wd system from auto lock hubs to drive control axle.auto lock hube are on the older trooper's with the light and wiper switches on the dash. The same way to change both. Auto hub remove the six hex. screws slide off the hub remove the sirclip from the driveshaft. Newer hub has 6 alan-head screw's again remove them then the hubcap then the sirclip on the shaft and slide off the round spacer. Next 4 bolts from the lower balljoint and the brake's. Pull out the hub until it clear's the shaft remove the inner boot clips slide the inner boot out the shaft. Clean the grease from the end of the axle then with your fingernail feel along any of the 3 tracks in the axle and near the outer end of the track you will find a wirelike split ring slide a screwdriver under the ring and lever it off . Pull out the drive clean off the grease. You will see a sirclip on the end of the joint remove it and slide off the joint. You can replace either boot from that end. The outer joint is held on with a snap ring on the shaft inside the joint and is not easily removed need a hammer and drift to drive off the end and when removed its hard to get the snap ring on the shaft back into its place.You can change both boots from this end as well. Cheers

How do i change a lower ball joint to a awd astro 2000


you must remove all and all to the axle. Your lower ball joint is independant and needs to be completely removed to add a new hub assembly.

97 ford explorer awd bad right front cv joint


Yes you can, If you have taken the front drive shaft off, you can even still drive with the CV joint in place till you want to remove it. You may get some vibration around corners till you replace the CV joint or remove it totally.
But if your going to remove it, might as well wait till you have the replacement so you only do the job once. I had a Bad CV joint on a AWD Chevy van and did the same thing so i could still use it, and then replaced the CV joint when the weather got better.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Need to relace driver side cv shaft


U will need to disconnect the strut bolts to the steering hub, remove large nut off end of axle shaft at hub, also take the tie rod end off as well as brake caliper and rotor, then push the axle shaft back out of the hub and tie the hub away from the axle with wire, the axle then just snaps out of the trans, this will be very hard to do, you will have to pull the axle at a straight angle and try to pull in a quick outward snapping motion, it will take repeated attempts so don't get frustrated, take your time.
