Replace cv joint 2006 chrysler sebring


remove wheel then remove the brake caliper from its mounting and support with a wire out of way, then rotor assembly, separate the ball joint from the spindle. remove the axle nut and pull the shaft out of the spindle. then pull half shaft out of the transaxle(transmission). be aware you will lose some trans fluid that you will have to replace. install new half shaft and re assemble in reverse order. the axle nut torque is 135 lbs. its cheaper to replace the half shaft as a unit as opposed to just the cv joint.

How to change driverside c-v joint chevy venture


You don't change the cv joint. You purchase a half shaft left or right side and you replace the whole axle shaft they are around $150.00. Take off the tire, remove axle shaft nut, remove spindle from lower ball joint and pull the axle out of spindle then you take a large pry bar and carfully pop the axle shaft out of the transmission. Very easy job only takes about 1 hour to for complete job.

Trying to replace axil


IF THIS IS FRONT WHEEL DRIVE YOU HAVE A CV SHAFT AXLE AND THESE CAN BE QUITE A JOB. YOU SHOULD HAVE AN INNER AND OUTER CV JOINT IT WILL BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE WHOLE SHAFT.
YOU WILL HAVE TO JACK AND SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE CAR WITH OUT GETTING ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF THE AXLE YOU ARE TRYING TO REPLACE. 1) REMOVE THE WHEEL 2) REMOVE THE NUT THAT HOLDS THE AXLE IN THE SPINDLE. 3) REMOVE THE CALIBERS AND PAD FROM THE ROTOR 4)REMOVE THE ROTOR 5) REMOVE THE TORTION BAR END BUSHINGS AND LOWER BALL JOINT. WITH A SOFT HAMMER DRIVE THE AXLE SHAFT END FROM THE SPINDLE WHILE YOU PULL THE STRUTT AWAY FROM THE CAR . THE AXLE END SHOULD SLIDE OUT OF THE SPINDLE AND THAT END SHOULD FALL TO THE GROUND. WITH A LONG PRY BAR YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE OTHER END OUT OF THE TRANS/AXLE HOUSING. TO REPLACE THE AXLE SHAFT JUST REVERSE THESE DIRECTIONS. YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK THE SPINDLE BEARINGS FOR PLAY OF ANY KIND. THERE IS NOTHING WORST THEN HAVING TO DO THIS TWICE. IT'S NOT TO BAD OF A JOB BUT CAN BE TIME CONSUEMING IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. HOPE THIS HELPS

How to remove and replace front left axle on a 2000 hyundai elantra


1 remove the tire
2 remove the nut off the axle in the center of the hub
3 remove the two nut and bolts that hold the strut to the spindle and pull spindle out towards you. these bolts may be pressed in and you might have to beat them out with a hammer, carefull not to hit the threads, reuse them
4 when you pull the spindle push the axle inwards until you can force it out. you might have to tap the axle with a hammer to get it to release from the spindle.
5 look at the distance between the axle and tranny 1/2 to 1 inch
6 get a pry bar and put it between the axle and tranny
pry the axle out, it has a c clip to hold it in, it may take a lot of pressure.
7 replace the axle with new one, remember the distance and the c clip. you have to get it back in to that distance and you can not hit the end of the shaft with a steel hammer, use a block of wood on the shaft and a hammer
8 assemble the rest in reverse order
9 when putting the strut to the spindle put the bottom bolt in first.

Replacing the right wheel bearing how do u remove that hub do u need a special tool for it


is it a 4x4? the wheel bearing comes with a new hub assembley . Just find out what size the front half shaft nut/ lock nut/axle nut- is. its probably a 33mm thats the only special tool you will need. Unscrew it, take your outer tie rod off the spindle/steering knuckle, theres 3 bolts behind it, take them off then disconect the abs harness and pry out the old hub assembley use a rubber hammer (dead blow hammer) to tap the half shaft out if seized. when installing the new wheel bearing see your manufacturer specs. for torquing the axle nut back on.
