Just because you have done others does NOT mean that this model is not MORE difficult!! You can't get under the lip of the left side inner joint to "pop" it out with a large screwdriver, like you do on the right side. After quite a bit of "cussing and crying", I gave up and figured I had to find another way. What I came up with is to buy an old-fashioned 3 1/2 inch muffler clamp and tighten up on the large flat part of the inner joint. Then you can take a large screwdriver and "pop" the joint out with relative ease. YEA, YEA!!!
Try it, IT WORKS, and the frustration level is at a minimum. Don't forget to put a shallow pan under the differential or you will have oil everywhere.
After you finish you can wipe up the clamp and return it if you wish, or just keep it until next time. Heck it's only about $5.00.

.I have removed the end of drive shaft out of the hub[rhs] ,other end of shaft is still attached.will the cv joint come off the end of the shaft so i can fit the new boot?


Which vehicle are you working on?

Some of these CV-joints are designed with an outside circlip. An example of such a setup would be on an Opel/Vauxhall. On cars like these with an outside circlip it is possible, after cleaning the grease to actually see the circlip and with a good quality circlip pliers, it is possible to expand the circlip sufficiently to remove the outer CV- joint with a sharp tap while keeping circlip expanded all whilst the CV- joint is still attached to the vehicle on the inner side.

On other designed CV- joints the circlip sits on the inside of the CV joint. In other words you cannot see the circlip at all. If it is such a design then the compete CV- joint unfortunately has to be removed.

Why it has to be removed if it an inside designed circlip?

Well in most cases it requires a rather sharp tap of a rubberized hammer on the outer CV to remove it from the drive shaft. This is not possible whilst the CV-joint is attached as damage to inner CV flange is very likely.

How do u get the drive axle thats broke into two ?


I'm not sure of your question but I think you want to know how do you replace to drive axle also known as the CV joint. To replace the CV joint jack up the side that broke and remove the wheel. Then remove the center nut that holds the CV joint to the hub. Put the car in gear or park so the hub will not turn why you do this or have someone put on the brake why you're doing this. Then remove the lower ball joint. Now pull the hub outward as you push the CV joint in. You may have to do some prying. Now using a pry bar snapped the other side of the CV joint out of the transmission. Reverse this to install new one. Good luck.

How much does it cost to repair a cv axle


The best option isn't to repair it, but get a rebuilt half shaft. Otherwise you run the risk of the other CV falling apart right after the new one starts putting pressure on it's joint. Never buy a new CV all by itself and try installing it to the half shaft, thats just too much work for too little gain. Most half shafts are pretty cheap and come ready to go with 2 brand new CV joints attached and ready to install.

What's involved in changing a cv joint in a 2000 Rav 4? I have very good mechanical abilities & have changed cv joints before (about 10 years ago)


Easy enough job really, jack car up, put axel stand under. remove wheel - remove hub nut, remove pinch bolt - prise open the pinch bolt part (sorry cant rem name) pop out the hub from the lower arm. Remove CV join from drive shaft. Usually a tap will pop it out.. sometimes theres a circlip that need removing (models vary). Grease up new CV joint - put grease in new boot, pop boot over drive shaft. put cv join on (replace circlip if provided in kit). join cv to hub - attach CV boot fully. fasten hub nut, replace wheel.

done. might need tracking again or aligning once you do this.

CV joint questions


well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted
now then,,,storie over,,, its time for sleepy sleeps

How do I change the CV joints on a 1.8TD Ford Escort P reg


Hi mate

With the driveshaft removed from the vehicle.

Undo the the retaining straps on the CV boot.

Pull the CV boot up the driveshaft a little way, enough so you can clean all the old grease away.

Now look into the CV joint an locate the circlip that locks the CV to the driveshaft.

Now put the driveshaft into a vice with the CV joint facing downwards.

Now open the circlip and at the same time strike the CV joint. You can do this with a ballpin hammer if you are scrapping the CV joint. You can get a helper to stike the CV joint with a hammer while you keep the circlip open.

This will release the CV joint form the drive shaft.

Now clean the driveshaft of any old grease and fit a new CV boot if needed.

Now reverse the driveshift in the vice and fit the new CV joint. It will tap on with no trouble but do not damage it. Test it is on by trying to pull it off with your hands.

Now fill it with new grease.

Fit the CV boot to the CV joint and secure it to the CV joint.

Now it is ready to refit to your vehicle.

I trust this solves the problem for you.

Cv joints/tranny


Hate to the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like one of the gears in the transmission is shot (namely the ring and pinion gear.) One thing to check and see is to look under the hood and look at where the CV joints enter the transmission. Have someone put it into gear while you look. See if the output shafts of the transmission is turning, but the inner CV joint is not.

Much as I hate to say it, you picked a bad car for a beginning driver. Parts are expensive for this car, and sometimes hard to come by.
