Ok CV axles are ones used only on front wheel drive vehicles so if this is the case here you go....before you jack up the car, try to loosen up the spindle/hub nut using a good size strong breaker bar and pipe assembly once loose jack up take opff tire,remove the disc caliper assembly,reve the axle bolt/washer, remove the rotor and bearing hub and assembly, place a pan under the outboard side of the transmission (where the axle slips in to catch any trans fliud that may leak out) pry the axle shaft out....remember to always support any vehicle with jack stands to insure your safety....wear goolgles rust and grease **** when it hits the eye balls and try to wear mechanics gloves to help prevent any nasty cuts and or grease paws...replace using the same proceedure....when you have everything in....tighten up the axle shaft bolt once the car is lowere with the wheel on the ground as this will allow you to fully torque that large nut to its full capacity, hope this helps.....John.

SOURCE: How to remove CV Axle from Manual Transmission on 2002 cavalier

the axle just pulls or snaps out of the trans, it is held in by an internal round spring clip, they are a real bear to remove the 1st time, u must pull straight out with a sharp jerking motion to get them to release, be patient it will come out.

SOURCE: can't get cv axle off my impala 2003

If youve got everything disconnected and out of the way they just pull straight out.. They are held by a metal ring and need a good tug to compress the ring and slide out.

SOURCE: cv half axles

Hey tconley3
I have done the front CV half axles in my '96 WRX and did not require a special tool, mine was an Auto, but I suspect a manual car is similar. Firstly, while the car is on the ground, unlock the lock tab and loosen the main hub nut - it can be very tight. Then lift the car up off its wheels and use stands to make sure it is safe and won't fall on you - I have a hoist which is really nice. Take off the wheel, brake caliper (I hang this by a piece of wire from the spring, saves disconnecting and bleeding the brakes) and take off the disc. Take off the main hub nut. Then release the two strut to hub carrier bolts and then knock them out. Note that they are slightly different - put them back the way they came out. The hub will now hang down on the bottom ball joint. At this stage you should be able to push the drive shaft back out of the hub assembly. This is not easy, but I managed to do mine. If this cannot be done then I guess you would need to take the hub off completely by releasing the bottom ball joint. You now have the drive shaft hanging down from the gearbox. The shaft is on a spline. Inside the gearbox on the end of the spline is a radial groove on which sits a wire ring. I assume this is to stop the shaft falling out. As you pull the shaft out, this wire ring comes up against a taper in the gearbox which is supposed to compress the wire ring into the groove and allow the axle to come out. Sometimes this does not happen easily and you will need to **** it out. If it wont come out because the spline or the wire ring is damaged you have a major, major problem which I can't help you with - Gearbox disassembly I suspect. Anyway, that should have the shaft sitting on the floor. The axle shaft pulls out of the CV the same way (spline, wire ring thing). Assembly is easy, but in the reverse order. Use the factory torque settings for all the main nuts/bolts. A few things: get the wheel alignment done after the job. If you cannot get the disc caliper back on the disc, use a "G" clamp and gently push the caliper pistons back into the caliper a bit which will allow you more room between the disc and pistons. If you do this, you will need to gently pump the brake pedal a couple of times to restore the pedal, it will go straight to the floor on the first application - don't find this out on the way out of the shop!!!! Be prepared to loose some skin and get very dirty. If possible, when you have finished, get someone else to check all the bolts for tightness, leaving some of these loose could cause a serious accident.
Hope this helps
Cheers
Keith

You should be able to get a universal CV boot. Obviously, you would have to check the dimensions before buying it.

Have a look on Ebay. A supplier of CV boots should be able to sort one out for you.

Based on your description, I would say it probably is the differential gears, and I would not drive it on the highway until you get it inspected. Very unusual for a car that new.

My 2002 chevy impala shakes whem i accelerate the gas between 40-60 mph. I changed the tires and 2 motor mounts but it still shakes


When you changed your tires were the wheels inspected to make sure they weren't bent. If on of your wheels is bent even just a little it could cause your shake. You could try rotating the front ones to the back and see if it makes a difference. I would inspect your wheel bearings and front CV axles and joints. If one of those it bad it will cause your shake.
