It can be fixed but now you will need to remove it from the trans and cut the band off the larger side of the boot. then re-alighn the knuckles and slide the 3 joints in 1 at a time. You going to need a new band and the crimper which you can usualy rent from a parts store that has free tool rental. Make sure you grease the joint before you slide the boot back on. Its easier that it looks. When you pull the cv joint out of the transmission some fluid will come out too so use a drain pan. Sometimes they are a pain to get out but a good prybar and some patients usualy works. Pry as you turn the cv joint and it will pop out. Good luck!
First you need to remove the tire rod ball joint from the spindle. (This is the middle ball joint on the spindle) (the spindle holds the wheel) Remove that bolt.
Now take a mallet and hit the side of the spindle a couple good times and the arm will come loose.
Lift it up and pull it to one side.
Now the next thing to do is remove that lower ball joint.This is the bottom bolt on the spindle. You will need a pry bar and while your hitting the side of the spindle you will pry down until the lower ball joint and the spindle separate. You may need to pry the clamp apart too. This is where you removed that bolt from. This one can be a pain but is necessary.
Next you need to get the get a Axle bolt remover the size of your axle bolt in a 1/2 inch drive.
You will now remove the axle bolt.
Now you you want to tap on the end of the axle rod as you hold onto the spindle and tap the axle lose from the hub.
Once the spindle moves out from the axle then turn the spindle and move it just to one side of the axle.
You should now have full view of the CV axle.
Now get a long pry bar and get back there with the pry bar where the axle connects to the transmission and while prying on that CV axle pull out on it to. It may take a bit of fooling with as they can be stuck in there pretty good but eventually it will pop out of there. A note not to put your face in the path of the CV Axle or it may split your head when it comes popping out of the transmission.
Now the CV Axle is out.
Reverse steps to install new CV Axle.
When you install the new CV axle make sure it goes in the same way it came out and make sure it "clicks" into place real good.
check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck
With the car on axle stands and front wheels off. Split the ball joint and turn the steering to one side. Loosen the threads on the CV joints and mark how many threads the old ones were at. Fit new CV joint and press/lever the ball joint back on. Same for the other side. You'll need he alignment doing afterwards, even if you think you got the threads spot on.
If you don't your tires will suffer. The job sounds easy but sometimes splitting ball joints can be a pain. Good luck, set aside a full day.
I cannot see it, but I am guessing that you need to replace your axle seal. To do this,you have to pull your CV shaft out. Remove the tire, remove the caliper from the top of the rotor. Using a hammer on the back, remove the rotor. Take off the spindle (axle) nut, separate the axle (CV shaft) from the hub. Replace seal. It should pop right out. Good luck!
your kind of screwed because that is your spider gear pin. you will need to remove the differential unit and install the pin but probably need to replace the bolt that is supposed to hold that pin in place.
It's not an easy job, and a very messy one! If you have never done CV's before, I suggest you take it to a CV specialist, as they will do it quickly and cheaply in comparison to the hardship you will have to go through doing it yourself. These vehicles are common for the axles rusting into the hubs and siezing in there, and often the whole hub needs to be removed and the axle heated and pressed out. The new CV's often don't come with a tone wheel for the ABS system and you may need to swap the old tone wheel onto the new CV joint, and measure the alignment of it with the sensor when refitting.
