The axle has to come out if its the inside boot. or they have split boots this way axle does not need to come off, just replace on car. they are not that great, but it may work for a while. what do you mean by bolt! I thought you meant axle boots. are you talking the threads were the nut is to tighten to hub. if so there is no good fix, you just have to replace axle on that side, hope this helps,

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...

Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

CV axle shaft replacement

1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.

    How do I replace the front axles?

    Jack the car up having the tire off the ground, the higher the better. If you access to the lift it will be very easy to work on. The best jack to use if you don't have access to the lift is a jack stand which the car can set and rest on or hydraulic floor jack will also work fine.
    1 remove front tires (4 lugs)
    2 remove bake calipers (2 bolts)
    3 remove the main bolt from the main front axle hub (1 big bolt)
    4 remove the front disc from the main hub (will come out freely after removing the main bolt)
    5 remove/seperate the main hub from strut (1 long bolt)
    6 remove the two small bolt on the wishbone axle, there is a small metal cover has two bolts which
    cover the main wishbone bolt need to remove in order for the hub to drop freely from the strut. it
    make axle slide out from the main hub easily.
    once you complete 1-6, the tough part and sometime stubborn is to remove the main hub from the axle. you may have to tap the axle with the hammer removing to seperate the hub from the axle. before you do any tapping to the main axle tip out from the main hub make sure you put the main axle bolt back on but don't screw the bolt all the way back in just but far enough until the tip of the axle is flush with the bolt, that way is safe to tap on it. if you tap or hammer the main axle without the bolt you will damage and flatten the thread of the axle and wont be able to put the bolt back on to the axle. You have to remove the axle from the main hub first before you be able to slide the axle out from the transmission. do not remove or undo any brake line, it will cause more work. don't forget not to set you emergency bake or you will have a tough time removing the caliper. rebuilt axle will run around 50 bucks with core exchange and many shop can put it in for 125 to 150 including used parts and labor. good luck and hope that work for ya.
