The trick is getting under the car safely. Do not use jacks alone. Make sure you put the jacks under the car frame and not the suspension system. When you have removed the tires, you'll have visibility to everything that needs to be removed. You'll need an air impact wrench to remove the CV joint axle nut. This nut is usually 18 to 22 mm. Your local auto parts store will sell the socket that you need. The passenger side is more difficult than the driver's side.
1. Remove tires.
2. Remove brakes and system components.
3. Loosen the strut bolts at the top. Remove all strut bolts at the bottom.
4. Move the suspension to the side.
5. Pry out CV joints.
6. Note: be careful of ABS sensor wire.
Please understand that steps one through four are in simple form. A certified mechanic can do it in a morning. As a home mechanic, a full day should be allowed for the process.

Hello...

How hard is relative, I will say it is an involved process. Some special tools and a good manual if you have not done it before. So, to me it would be hard.

Good Luck

Mike

Yes, how hard is relative, it varies depending on the tools you have, how much experience you have in such processes, what kind of life the car has "lived", even can be different in difficulty between two brand new ones at the dealership, depending on how many test-drives each has been on and all that. Parts could be stuck too, and that adds another dimension to it all.

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.

I would say very good possiblity to be the cv shaft or cv shafts but you might try a tune up first change out the spark plugs and spark plug wires if that hasn't been done in 30,000-40,000 miles.If you have the cv axle or axles changed you will have to have it realigned again.

Remove cv shaft 2002 hyundai accent left side


It will be pretty hard to remove as there is a a clip on the end that makes it hard to remove and install. You may be able to insert a pry bar in between the transmission and the axle, or wrap a chain/rope around the axle where it goes in to the transmission.

Is replacing a C.V joint a major mechanical job? (on a coupe, it wasn't in the drop down list!)


yes . do not replace just the C.V joint, replace the whole axle it will be cheaper in the long run!

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.
