SOURCE: front cv joint lubrication

you do not lube them they are full of grease.if boot tears and splatters the grease out then you replace boot or anymore just as cheap to replace axle. Some lube centers try and sell a lube service on these where they poke a hole in your boot and pump grease in them.This is a no no as it causes your joint to start leaking

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

No you do not need to remove the motor. You will need to remove the driveshaft from the gearbox (driver side) so you may need to drain the gearbox oil. Passenger side has an intermediate shaft and the drive shaft can be split without removing from the gearbox.

One the shaft is off remove the outer boot and nock the old CV joint off with a hammer and somthing to take the impact without damaging the joint (incase its re-useable). I used the rubber end of a screwdriver on the joint and hit the metal end of the driver with a hammer.

If the CV joint boot you have recieved is not the strechy type you will need to slide it onto the shaft prior to installing the new joint.


To install the new joint can be a chew. There is a circlip seated in a groove on the outer splines of the driveshaft. This clip is slightly larger than the groove it sits in must be "negotiated" into the groove while you slide the new cv joint over (Use a flathead screwdriver to prize the circlip in as you push the new CV joint onto the shaft.) Once you get this right the CV joint will slide down and the circlip will make an audiable click and pop out of the groove on the inside of the joint holding the join in place.

Pack the joint with the grease provided. Slide the boot over and fasten the boot in place with the metal straps and put your car back together.

Beware of new Circlips - my old one was mishapen so I used the new one provided and it was massive in comparison. It took me and a friend a good hour and a half just to get the new CV joint over the circlip - patience is a virtue :D

Incase you can get the shafts out....

Best way is to split the bottom ball joint and suspension wishbone. I'm not a massive fan of this as bottom ball joints have caused me too many issues. I split the tom ball joint and the tracking rod end to give enough movement to get the driveshafts out.

Also never pull on the driveshaft its self as this can pull apart the inner joint inside its boot which is a real faff on to get back together (trust me). Use a screwdriver or small crow bar to prize the shaft out at the gearbox end.

SOURCE: cv boot replacement - how important is it?

I would not let them go for to long, it will only cost you more money in the long run. I have had several front wheel drive cars, one being a honda. I let them go for a few months when I new they needed replacing. All the dust and little rocks and debris got in there. I ended up having to replace both drive axels and also replacing the boots. So I would get this fixed as soon as possible.

Cv joint and boots


Hi Wendy Ann,
Hard to give an exact diagnosis when I can not hear the noise myself. Generally, a bad CV joint will make a clicking sound when you turn a corner. From what you describe, it sounds like you've been ignoring the problem for some time. Due to the mileage on your car, I would recommend that you change both front half axle assemblies. [There are two CV joints/boots on each half axle] This is a common problem on front wheel drive cars.

I have a 2005 Honda CRV and get an intermittent vibration in the front end when going anywhere from 35-49 mph. Usually on straight road. Lasts for say 10 seconds then stops. New tires. Alignment if...


best guess is to have the CV joints checked, make sure that the boots are good in the outside joints. but it could also be the inside joint just has to much wear. you are at the right mileage for either to be the problem, the next time you get the vibration put a little pressure on the steering wheel in one direction then the other and see if the vibration goes away if it does suspect the CV joints. and don't just replace the outside joint replace both half shafts. if the vibration does not change or go away when you put pressure on the steering wheel then suspect lower ball joints.

On my 2003 Honda CRV Sport, When I lock me steering I get a grinding noise, does anyone what this is? Cheers Alan


if the noise only occurs at full lock then it is the pump clutch slipping which is normal.sounds awful but okay.

On the right front wheel the cv boot came apart and I am wondering what the process is to change out the half shaft and or is it possible to repack and put on a new boot?I am working on a 2003 Subrau...


They make what's called a split boot. If your car will go through tough inspection they may not pass, but they are easier to replace than the half-shaft and should last as long as the cv joint.

When I turn there is a grating sound, both left and right turns--doesn't happen at low low speeds or on very easy turns. 2003 honda civic


It sounds like the CV joints need some attention. These are covered with rubber boots and if the boots crack they let in water and/or dirt which cause the joints to make a popping or grinding sound. Turn the wheels left or right and look under the car towards the inside of the wheels. The boots are right next to the back of the wheels. Look for cracks in the rubber. If you can, push on the boots and check for small cracks. If they are cracked, have them looked at immediately. The longer they go like that the more damage will be caused. Thanks for using fixya.

My 1992 Honda Accord EX-R makes a clunking/rattling sound...


It's probably your cv (constant velocity) joint. Jack up the honda and put it on safety stands, look at the area behind the center of both front wheels, there is a rubber boot. This boot protects the cv joint from dirt, road grime, water, salt, etc. If you see splits in it or grease on the boot, it has deteriorated, and is letting contaniments in. The damage has already been done if it makes a rattling noise going around corners at slow speed. I changed both cv joints (purchased rebuilt axles for $49 each) in my 92, but it is a big job labor wise. There's a lot to take apart to remove the axles.

Changing a CV joint


CV boot and CV joints are different. Boot covers the joint which protects it from debris and other harmful things. if your boots are cracked then just change them. pretty cheep to do yourself. but if you look at the joints and there is dirt on them then you have a problem. i have that same thing and its fine for me unless i turn on the 4W. then you hear a clicking noise. eventually if you keep going like that your car will stop moving. you can look to buy new cv halfshafts. for a good price go to pep boys. best deal i've found anywhere
